The Value of Knowledge in a New Job
Lloyd Lawrence, Manager, Australia, SIG Leader
Knowledge is an interesting thing: in one respect, once we have it, we never lose it. In another respect, when a change occurs our previous knowledge typically has limited application to a new situation.

Having just moved from the Aviation industry to a State Government Education organisation, in a lot of ways I need to start all over. Time for me to step back, observe and learn the new organisation. Time for me to evaluate my previously gained knowledge and see how I can apply it for the best for my new organisation. I'm looking forward to getting stuck in and contributing!

⇒ What successes have you had applying previous knowledge in a new organisation just after a job change?
 

 
The Value of your Knowledge when you are Starting over in a New Organisation
Jaap de Jonge, Management Consultant, Netherlands
Indeed knowledge is a funny thing.
My experience with starting in a new organization is that after an initial apparent decrease in the value of your knowledge, after a while as you learn new things and combine that with what you already knew, the value of your knowledge increases considerably.

That's why I think that changing jobs now and then is good for your own development, but also for the organizations you work for. Indeed if a person works for a very long time for the same employer, that is no longer considered as a pre like perhaps in the past.
