Knowledge Management for Public Service – Advanced Practices

Knowledge management is of growing importance to the success of organizations.  Clearly defined systems and agile management of data, information, and knowledge assets is now a core requirement. Knowledge management success depends of strategic application of clearly defined processes with relentless cycles of improvement from strong feedback signals.  The mandates of public service organizations has never been as complex as they are today.  Knowledge management is no longer a nice to have – it is a must have.

Building on a solid foundation of core concepts, in this 2-day workshop you will explore complex system drivers that support or impede successful KM initiatives.  You will examine trends in governance including Open Government and Open Data. You will look at management and transfer systems within your own organization and between organizations or sectors.  You will address gaps and potential hazards that prevent success and find ways to avoid potential failure.
