The best-practice organizations in APQC’s Putting Knowledge in the Flow of Work study value creativity, but they don’t want employees to recreate the wheel unnecessarily. Over the years, the organizations have amassed a wealth of intellectual property (IP), solutions, templates, and designs. By organizing these resources in well-structured, searchable electronic repositories, the best-practice organizations make reusable IP available when and how employees need it, allowing them to customize and build on preexisting elements to meet current needs.
