Empower decisions with Mindpool

Today, decisions are mostly based on explicit knowledge. That is, the knowledge that we are aware of, can write down in management reports and express in PowerPoints. Yet, explicit knowledge only accounts for a fraction of the combined intelligence in the organization – roughly 10%. It really is just the tip of the iceberg.
