    Know-how is more than knowledge. It puts knowledge to work in the real world. It is how scientific discoveries become routine medical treatments, and how inventions — like the iPod or the Internet — become the products and services that change how we work and play. The saying "Knowledge is power" is first attributed to philosopher Sir Francis Bacon in 1597. It was true then and it's true now. Most firms recognize that knowledge in the form of Thought Leadership - delivering new ideas and…
