I am a Management Consultant

Be in control of your information.

I am simply in better control of my information than my peers. This is a significant advantage to me.
I am not constantly doing word searches on information. My really important information is saved in context. By that I mean that if I need to bring up information on 'program management', I can do that in the context of 4 assignments with 4 Fortune 100 companies. Each added to the body of knowledge and was far more compelling to the client than the always out of date stuff that my company produced in R & D.
I can share lots of stuff with colleagues who also use the DNE. Compare this with what normally happens at the end of a consulting assignment. A hopelessly out of touch central KM organization asks for artifacts. They may or may not get it, depending on the importance of my next assignment.
What is really valuable, especially going into a new field (business or technology), is how quickly you learn what the first people in the territory did and what they learned. That is magic, to acquire this in real time. The alternative is to learn it too late to have an expertise advantage, to play an expensive game of catch up (higher cost for trained resources, contracts with lower margins and the higher likelihood that you will make a mistake that someone else has already learned from). And again, the cost is low, because this better way to transfer knowledge from one person to another is a by-product of a better way of managing knowledge in the first place.
I will not attempt to discuss the advantage of many to many relationships versus the Micro/Apple tree structure. If you don't get this, I am addressing the wrong audience. I know the power of model based definition versus lists. Both are extremely useful, but Micro/Apple products for KM only support lists.
