Knowledge Management – An Introduction

Knowledge management is the systematic process by which the knowledge needed for an organization’s success is created, captured, shared, and leveraged.  Knowledge is a much more complex concept than either data or information, however, all are needed to meet the mandate of today’s constantly adapting organizations. The speed of global change means that we must manage our knowledge quickly and continuously to ensure that we create the most value for the people we serve.

During this two-day workshop, you will learn about the culture needed within an organization to maximize the processes of knowledge management.  You will learn how to work with stakeholders, policymakers, and practitioners to build their considerations into your work before you even begin. You will learn how to develop comprehensive knowledge sharing strategies to position your knowledge for the greatest impact. You will move beyond the push-out tradition toward fostering the relationships and networks often required to develop cross-sector solutions to complex problems. Finally, you will begin to see how the feedback gathered from partners will help ensure your programs and policies remain relevant over time.
