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!
