In addition to assisting remote workers, a commitment to a written culture helps quickly moving organizations by making sure that people execute on decisions made even if they were not yet hired when the decision was made.
I feel like we should start any meeting of importance with "Look around the room. Think of what the room is going to look like in twelve months. Half of those faces are not yet here with us. The notes *are for them*; let's make sure they are good."
The alternative to this is that you pass everything through either a) oral lore or b) you build all decisions into the structure of your organization.

There are substantial disadvantages to these approaches, particularly for knowledge workers.
