Reasons for Lack of Determination to Knowledge Management and Development
Several complex organizations are not yet engaged clearly with a strong determination in the process of knowledge management and development. What is the reason for that?
One possibility is that they do not understand
truly that they are in jeopardy, losing huge opportunities, capacities, capabilities and benefits in several spheres, activities, zones and periods of time.
Any complex organization can be more excellent and competitive in its domain, when its leaders and managers will be or are educated and guided via the star pillar of Knowledge Management and Development (KMD). But it is observed that in several large organizations, leaders and managers are not very open-minded, flexible, and agile. This can be another reason as some leaders and managers, influenced by a certain degree of narcissism, are not ready or willing or keen to boost Knowledge Management in their organizations. They think they will be compelled to share their powers and attributions by sharing knowledge and information, in transparency.
Quite a lot of leaders and managers want to continue their autocratic and non-transparent decision-making
They do not encourage open knowledge management and distribution to keep their position of asymmetric information, moral hazard, and adverse effect, in order to stay on abusing in their behavior and mismanagement reactions. As a result they are toxic for their organization. This destructive impact of such people can be multiplied by a factor 2 or 3 through the resources, processes, outputs, outcomes and systemic effects the control, especially when the organization is complex and/or becoming more complex.
Therefore, such leaders and managers can destroy the interests and needs of several stakeholders of the organization.
