Knowledge Asset - cooking for engineers

I was pointed to this courtesy of Mary Abraham's Law KM blog. It's such a great example of knowledge packaged for the specific end user, that I felt I had to share it with you!

This is from a cookery book for engineers, and is just a fantastic example of packaged knowledge - in this case how to cook a meat lasagne. Very visual, and I love the process diagram at the bottom, and the layering diagram. Or this example for cheesecake. Look also at the comments beneath - in this example we can see an error in the original recipe has been picked up in the comments and corrected.

Now I know that not all KM consists of "giving people the recipe", but sometimes it does, and when we do have to write the "recipe" for an activity or a business process, lets make it as clear and as visual as these examples, with the same ability to comment and correct.
