To celebrate the final of the Lions' Series* today, here's Brian O'Driscoll's** take on the value of Knowledge.
"I played on instinct in 2001. My rugby awareness is a lot better nowadays. My understanding of players and why we do what we do, why you run these lines, why you tackle a certain way. There's a lot of things you pick up by playing. I've played a lot of rugby and if you pick up one thing each time you play, there is a wealth of knowledge there."
Maybe that's a good way to approach Knowledge Management in organisations as well - "Pick up at least one thing each time you play"
