PM and L&D professionals often think about training and adoption of new materials through the acquisition of new knowledge. One of the biggest barriers to adoption is the historical and tribal knowledge in companies that keep bad habits alive and slows adoption of new tools and processes. Intentional forgetting is a component of successful implementations and a key component to managing change.
