UKeiG CPD Course: Advanced Knowledge Management: Strategy & Digital Implementation
Thursday, 23rd April 2020 - Sorry POSTPONED - to be rearrange later in the year
This advanced course explores in depth KM strategic planning and how to implement KM platforms effectively in the digital workplace. It will 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 emphasises the more enterprise-level implications of Knowledge Management, and 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
- Senior professional services staff outside of library and information services (eg IT, Finance, Communications, HR) 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 is 7th May 2019.)
Previous delegate feedback

“An excellent mix of practical and theoretical."
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 an increasingly complex and demanding digital environment. Successful knowledge managers must be able to address:
the digital present and future of KM platforms alongside an understanding of issues like big data and the prospect of artificial intelligence
The human-behaviour perspective (improving staff engagement, encouraging knowledge sharing, signposting skills and attributes)
Topics covered include:
- Knowledge Management principles and standards
- KM software, platforms and systems
- Types of KM strategies and maturity models
- Organisational learning and the role of knowledge in decision making
- Communities – for customers, suppliers and the organisation
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Assess the work environment in which your KM strategy will need 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
