This article defines org memory in terms of data, information and knowledge. Meanwhile the article on Corporate amnesia defines organizational memory as "the unrecorded event-specific, organization-specific and time-specific ‘how’ of know-how that characterizes any organization's ability to perform". Can either of these apparently conflicting definitions be reliably sourced? --Cat4567nip (talk) 18:45, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
The definition is inadequate. I added a reference to Kenneth Megill's book on Corporate Memory which is published by the oldest academic press in Germany and has come out in two editions and been translated into Serbo-Croation. I think the decision to merge corporate memory and organisational memory may have been ill-advised.
Completed a copy edit. Moved refs to footnote style in an attempt to make the article less confusing. Despite my best efforts, the text is still pretty impenetrable to the lay reader, and sounds like a business treatise, not an encyclopedia entry. It would be great if a topic expert could contribute more information and rewrite the article in a more accessible fashion. // ⌘macwhiz (talk) 20:58, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
