Dion Lindsay, Real Knowledge Management (DLC Ltd)
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 builds on the success of Dion Lindsay’s “Practical KM for Information Professionals” but participants need not have attended that course.
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 and staff who are planning or contemplating embracing KM as a key service
- 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
- Digital librarians and information professionals
Previous delegate feedback
This is a new course. Delegates who attended “Practical KM for Information Professionals” learned a lot and found it invaluable on their return to the workplace.
“I like the no nonsense approach.”
"An excellent amount of content in a relatively short amount of time"
“I finally understand KM!”
“So many case studies of good practice with practical examples of how to implement KM in a work setting.”
“The course taught me an awful lot about knowledge management and inspired me to work with our Associate Director of Organisational Development and Learning to drive forward and make a statement of purpose regarding KM within the organisation.”
Course outline and learning outcomes
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)
This course, led by a KM consultant and trainer with intimate understanding of how KM is currently being considered in the workplace, will show you how to plan strategically and implement modern Knowledge Management for your organisation. 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
- Knowledge mapping
- 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
- Benchmark your KM against the best in your sector
