At the heart of any Knowledge Management programme are activities to make knowledge, experience, and expertise work for the organisation. These activities include: assessing knowledge needs and flows; embedding tools and techniques to enable the organisation to learn from its experience; developing knowledge assets; and building networks and communities to fuel the growth and use of knowledge. Developing the right 'knowledge system' enables organisations to improve work practices, take better decisions; and avoid the criticism that comes from failing to learn from previous experience.
Underpinning a good knowledge system should be a tailored knowledge transfer programme that enables an organisation to map critical knowledge and knowledge at risk against business drivers, and ensures that its people are able to select the best tools and techniques to facilitate knowledge transfer to those who most need it. This workshop will take you through a series of steps that will enable you to understand your organisation from a knowledge perspective, consider how to align knowledge transfer activities with business priorities, and design a programme for making knowledge work better for the organisation's benefit.
