Event Details

Forget “KM” and the jargon for a moment. You’re an organization, and you want things—everything—done well. You want your clients happy, your work efficient and impactful, and your employees confident and innovative.

But how?

Knowledge Management may not solve all your organization’s ills, but its ecosystem does force you to ask the right questions: ‘Why do I need this [report/meeting/strategy/content...]’? ‘Who will use it?’ ‘Where will they find it’? ‘How can I measure its effectiveness’? ‘What can be done to sustain change?’

Please join us for a panel event to hear views from experts at Excella, the International Finance Corporation, and John Snow Incorporated as they bring together the KM ecosystem in one place for you.

Major themes include aligning content with business need, evaluating the right technologies for sharing and curating, analytics to measure KM program success, and perspectives on sustainability and change management for systems in the organization.

We hope to spark new connections and ideas where a Fortune 500 company can learn from a lean non profit and vice versa, and take a wider view of knowledge management that goes beyond the tool to empowering the people using the information
