KM Australia is happening in Melbourne in a couple of weeks (August 4-6). The theme for this year is “The Discovery and Re-Discovery of Knowledge.”
Knowledge Management is making a resurgence in all areas. Organisations are realising that they must retain the knowledge not just from retiring baby boomers, but also from Gen Y and Millennials, who tend to move organisations with more frequency than past generations.
These factors brings a reinvention of Knowledge Management as new processes and strategies for collaboration and learning are developed using enhanced and adapted KM practices—giving organisations the opportunity to reap real benefits.
High performing organisations have realised the critical role of knowledge and collaboration in stimulating creativity and enhancing innovation and performance.
There are six post-conference workshops on offer, all of which look great:
