Effective knowledge sharing throughout an organization enhances employee performance and fosters innovation. Learn the approaches that include, but also transcend, formal training. Facilitate the exchange of your organization’s most important commodity—the knowledge of the people who make the difference between success and failure.
Learning professionals have a major role in enabling access to critical knowledge and expertise in real time, wherever and whenever work gets done. More than just repositories of content, emerging knowledge management (KM) practices include fostering collaboration and access to experts. KM also requires a multidisciplinary approach where knowledge is directly and systemically integrated into the workplace, often as a function of the job itself.
With the emergence of web 2.0 tools in areas of knowledge creation and distribution, the characteristics and design of knowledge management solutions become more flexible and less complex. When this expertise is incorporated into everyday business practices, everyone can participate in generating and managing organizational intelligence. We will consider the implications of new information technologies in this non-technical and strategic workshop.
The content for this program is based, in part, on the ATD Competency Study and helps in preparation for obtaining the CPLP credential.
