Rising to the challenge of sustaining knowledge management

About this Event

The Knowledge and Community Network (KCN) is working with the Knowledge Hub to run regular events for those interested in or are working in knowledge and community management.

The KCN is very pleased that Dr Divyata Sohal and Judy Payne will be providing us with a free webinar on "taking knowledge seriously"

The Henley Forum has been leading KM thinking for over twenty years by bringing thought leaders and practitioners together in events and collaborative research projects.

This webinar, based on a current project titled In it for the long haul: Rising to the challenge of sustaining KM will give you a taster of the Henley Forum project experience.

Dr Divyata Sohal and Judy Payne will explain why the project is needed and introduce a framework for exploring different views of KM and barriers to sustaining KM in organisations.

You will hear how the project is developing tools to help you initiate barrier-busting conversations with non-KM specialists, including the Henley Forum view of knowledge and KM. You will also have the opportunity to apply the framework and explore ways in which certain barriers affect the sustainability of KM in your context and your organisation.

Key benefits of attending:

  • A taster of the Henley Forum project experience
  • Better understanding of the barriers to KM in organisations
  • Opportunities to discuss your own KM context with Henley Forum specialists

You will be invited to share your stories about such barriers and how you have overcome them. You will also find out how to join the Henley Forum annual conference in April, where the full findings and tools developed by the project will be released.
