Organizational Forgetting: Why Planning for Forgetting is Important to Adoption 

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.

The focus on the psychology, art, and science of gathering business requirements is the major contributor to project success where success is defined as being on time, within scope, and at or below budget.
