Design/methodology/approach – The empirical research consisted of a qualitative proposal based on two case studies in Higher ducation involving situations of organizational forgetting. Findings – A framework for conceptualising organizational forgetting. Moreover, the results of the case study analysis include a categorization of organizational forgetting and a set of propositions about their causes. Originality/value – Scientific research on knowledge management has focused on the processes of knowledge creation, use and transfer, but has devoted little attention to the processes of knowledge degradation and destruction.
