Knowledge Management Critical for Start-ups

From a RealKM post:

"It might sound strange, but I think a knowledge management initiative is as important in a small and growing organization as it is in a mature global company. It's tempting to say that it is 'just a couple of people' who can communicate directly everyday. However, what people forget is that this communication exchange is lost forever by not being captured. If the start-up is successful, in the long run, it will struggle to grow. On the flip side, if a start-up has to lay-off people, which is not uncommon these days, the employee's 'knowledge' walks out the door because that knowledge was not stored in context in a knowledge base."
