Organizational cultures not conducive to effective leveraging of knowledge (cont.2)
In his comments, Jean Pommier (ILOG) suggested the following two cultural traits (which I have adapted a bit):
14. Perfectionism resulting from fear of being wrong: the "I won't share until I'm certain it's perfect" syndrome.
15. Modesty resulting from lack of encouragement: the "who am I to teach others, of course they know" syndrome.
