Course outline and topics.
Do you want to find out how to actually "do" effective KM? Do you need to know how to convince senior management that managing knowledge will bring real benefits? Then this practical course - based on extensive, real-life case studies - is a must!

Effectively managed knowledge is one of the greatest resources modern organisations possess – and information professionals, with their expertise and understanding of their organisation’s working needs, are well positioned to take the lead. 

The concepts and theories of Knowledge Management (KM) are essential when interacting with senior management and other key stakeholders but doing KM is intensely practical. Knowledge Managers have to find out what will work for their organisation, and discovering new ways to engage work colleagues will be challenging and fun.

Topics covered include:

  • How to decide the most appropriate KM initiative(s) 
  • Designing your own KM development strategy – big bang or soft launch?
  • How KM is changing with the advent of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in the workplace
  • Selling KM to your users, managers and sponsors
  • Relating KM to your information services and the digital workplace
  • Quick wins – discussions and case studies
  • Developing your thinking about KM

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  •  Think practically about how KM fits your role and your organisation
  •  Talk authoritatively and relevantly to your champions and stakeholders
  •  Design KM quick wins to demonstrate its value to your organisation
  •  Contribute to the design of KM strategies
  •  Use KM accelerators and avoid some of the pitfalls of KM
