Welcome to this edition of I3 UPDATE / ENTOVATION International News. With many organizations currently downsizing, are they losing knowledge that will cost them more dearly in the upturn? I discuss the role of exit interviews in our main feature. Debra reports on Singapore, based on a recent visit. We will both be at KM2001 in The Hague later this week, and report on it in December's edition. We hope to meet some of you there.

And don't forget, you can view the archives at http://www.skyrme.com/updates/archive.htm.
