Loss of Institutional Knowledge in Emergency Management and Homeland Security: Curse or Blessing?

March 8, 2021

Professional disciplines have often decried the loss of institutional knowledge as a hindrance or obstacle that will lead that community to future tragedy in its performance and effectiveness. But is this assertion backed in credible evidence, observed experience or even compelling anecdotal stories? Or does an evolution from old knowledge to new create opportunities and innovations that would not have been otherwise possible? This short session explores the true effects and consequences and offers a thoughtful analysis of this dynamic.

This installment of the PELP Speaker Series was an interactive discussion with a live virtual audience. To view recorded topics similar to this session, please visit the Executive Education Program’s Lecture and Webinar Series.
