Role of stock and flow
Stock and flow play a vital role in the functional development of an organization. An organizations development depends up-on the employees and the management. The stock of knowledge is saved on human which is the source of knowledge. Through our lives, we have collected much information and built up some knowledge which is stocked in the Indian stock market. These stocks are not useful for an organization till it is implemented. The employees need to put their ideas (stock) and let it pass (flow) to that of the management, and the management then study it and will go for a sound knowledge management. There can be someone in the team who is capable of fulfilling certain job but is reluctant to do it then there is no use of this stock of knowledge. Therefore in parallel with business an organization would be able to grow and develop only then when there is an increase in the productivity. And productivity can be increased with an increase in the flow of knowledge so that the stock of knowledge remains the same and there is no hiring of extra employees or some external consultants.

To show the concept of stock and flow in knowledge management we can go through the following example:
To analyze the economic system the stock and flow concept can be implemented. In economics the flow of money is the velocity of money which can also be said as the circulation process. Thus the quantity theory of money states that this velocity of money can be defined as the ratio of net national product in current prices to the money stock.
The flow of current through electric circuit which is tempered by a certain resistance is all about basic electronics. For certain amplitude of current the given resistance in the network needs provisioning power i.e. the voltage. The current absorbed by the resistor need more power. Thus the flow (current) and the resistance (stock) operate in a reciprocal proportional way.
