How do you learn and become more knowledgeable?

We learn new things every day from everyone around us and all available resources. As we accumulate new information and attempt to use it, we become better experts. Purposefully managing this process is equally important practice for individuals and organizations. Individuals tend to manage knowledge without thinking of it, but it's more difficult for large organizations. They need to figure out systems and approaches to help all employees become their best by sharing, using and building upon the collective information they all know. We are looking for your help in designing such systems.

Note: This is for food research & development scientists and engineers that work in the offices, labs and manufacturing plants. Open office space is not feasible.
