UKeiG CPD Course: Advanced Knowledge Management: Strategy & Digital Implementation
Thursday, 28 November 2019 - 9:30am to 4:30pm
This advanced course explores KM strategic planning and how to implement KM platforms effectively in the digital workplace. It mixes a little theory with case studies and current issues to help you to articulate an organisational business plan to champion and start you on the road to a pervasive and successful KM culture in your organisation.
It assumes a basic understanding of types of Knowledge Management (a booklet on the essentials will be available before the course) and emphasises the enterprise-level implications of KM.
It is a more advanced course than Dion’s popular “Practical KM for Information Professionals”
Who should attend?
- KM practitioners and managers who want to take their skills and knowledge to the next level
- Senior managers with responsibility for knowledge mobilisation and sharing initiatives who need an enterprise-centric view of KM
- Information managers who are considering developing their services into the KM space
- Senior professional services staff outside of library and information services (IT, Finance, Communications, HR, for example) who require a strategic overview of KM implementation issues
(This is a companion course to UKeiG's Pratical Knowledge Management Course, which is also delivered by Dion Lindsay. The next iteration of the Practical KM course will be in 2020.)

Course outline and topics
While KM theory is embedded in human behaviour, successful implementation is increasingly related to the pressures on organisations to thrive in a complex and demanding digital environment. Successful knowledge managers must be able to address:
- The human-behaviour perspective (improving staff engagement, encouraging knowledge sharing, signposting skills and attributes)
- The digital present and future of KM platforms alongside an understanding of issues like big data and the prospect of artificial intelligence
This course, led by a KM consultant and trainer with understanding of how KM is currently being developed in the workplace, will show you how to plan strategically and implement modern Knowledge Management for your organisation. Topics covered include:
- Strategic principles of Knowledge Management
- KM software, platforms and systems
- Current KM issues such as BS 30401, maturity models and risks to KM units
- Organisational learning and the role of knowledge in decision making
- The relationship between artificial intelligence and big data techniques alongside knowledge management
By the end of the course you will be able:
- Assess the work environment in which your KM strategy needs to thrive
- Appraise and critique marketing material for current KM platforms and applications
- Judge the feasibility and “stickability” of KM pilots, programmes and projects
- Measure the progress of KM initiatives against expectations and realistic objectives
- Partner with IT and Communications departments for win-win strategies
- Assess your KM plans against a variety of case studies and current developments
