Date: August 2010
Type: Brochures and Flyers
Series: Knowledge Showcases
Author: Serrat, Olivier D.


ADB makes growing use of knowledge management tools, methods, and approaches but must better capture and store its wealth of tacit knowledge. In 2009, the Knowledge Management Center in ADB’s Regional and Sustainable Development Department launched an oral history project to help ADB hear itself. ADB staff expressed deep appreciation for "ADB: Reflections and Beyond" and its companion audio composition, "Beyond: Stories and Sounds from ADB’s Region"—ADB has developed an appetite for storytelling in various contexts and applications.
