Abstract

Many people and organisations continually repeat mistakes or fail to take advantage of opportunities because they have not learned from their past history, frequently as a result of not having taken the time to reflect and take stock of their experiences. This common error is avoidable, particularly with today’s capacity for information and communication technology (ICT) to enable organisations to not only record lessons learned but to easily make these available throughout an organisation. Moreover, the evidence of the literature and experience suggests that currently companies do not rigorously analyse past experience and log lessons learned using manual methods so it is hardly surprising that this trend is not changed by the availability of ICT.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
