Adding Intelligence to Information Yields Knowledge

Dear Bill,

Thanks for the articles on the Navy. Recognition that knowledge is more useful for leadership, than information and data, is a big step. Can you help contact people in the Navy who are open to discussing the potential cited by Rear Admiral Cross in his interview published by Defense Week? If we had email addresses, it is simple to submit POIMS with links that illustrate how to apply the Admiral's vision to improve management and reduce costs, cited, as well, by Rear Admiral Cobb in his interview, as a goal of the Navy.
