The Holy Grail in corporate archives is an irrefutable business justification for recording business history, one that carries as much weight in executives' management models during difficult economic times as it does when markets are up. To date, the search for this Grail has escaped the profession. However, a cross-disciplinary review of the literature in business and other non-archives/history academic journals that identifies ways that businesses can derive value from their organizational past offers some promising insights for this search. By summarizing key points from more than 60 academic articles on this topic, this article will show how the perspectives of non-archivists may hold clues as to where the profession may find its Grail.
