The paragraph below taken from Harold Jarche’s post Success depends on who we work with reminded me of a post I had written some time back, the Molotov cocktail = Weak ties x complicated knowledge. I have quoted some of these related to the topic at hand below: People find it hard to transfer knowledge when they don't know each other well (a weak tie).
