In the years of soul-searching that followed the arrival of the financial crisis the very definition of banking became central to national and international debate – and that remains the case.
What, after all, is a bank? And what have banks become?

During our 25 years of experience in the Knowledge Management business, Intuition has regularly been contacted by our clients’ regarding their difficulties in managing knowledge effectively. Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) are often viewed as the invisible friend in many organizations; decision makers are sure that something is being done but what and, more importantly, how much remains largely unquantifiable.
The challenge that Intuition has witnessed over the years as experienced by our clients is justification, where KMS advocates cannot determine exactly how much value the system is providing and, as a result, it becomes largely irrelevant. This is particularly true during tough economic times, when business margins are tight, all expenditure is carefully monitored and Return on Investment (ROI) is paramount. Until recently, Knowledge Management has lacked quantifiable metrics and evidence.
