A derivation of a curse says “may you live in interesting times”. Without doubt these are interesting times in which we now live, and yet we are better prepared for it because of the stock of human knowledge that we have built up and which is now helping us survive and, eventually, return to some kind of normality. Its also said that we live in a “knowledge economy” where our society is built around ideas and intellectual capital, and driven by technology. Our organisations are microcosms of this and yet often we underestimate the true value of harnessing and managing this knowledge, and making our knowledge truly work for us as a source of competitive advantage.
Join Gary Cookson as he provides an introduction to the discipline of knowledge management (KM) and why it matters in organisations. In this short webinar you’ll be introduced to some of the main approaches to KM, the obvious barriers to making it work, different ways of harnessing different types of knowledge in organisations, and the role of L&D in KM.
