This years Congress focuses on the importance of knowledge as a strategic asset, featuring successful case studies from professionals who have made a real difference with knowledge management in their organisation. Knowledge management only works when its a practical, every day, living process right across your organisation. Knowledge management theory that doesnt apply to your organisation is useless, and knowledge kept in a silo is wasted.

POST-CONGRESS WORKSHOPS Morning: Thursday, 25 July 2013

Workshop A
Registration: About the workshop: KM Strategic Alignment: A top down and bottom up approach Many organizations struggle with demonstrating the benefits of KM. This is often due to the lack of a clear KM strategy definition at the early stage of a KM initiative. We believe that an emphasis should be put first on the most critical knowledge domains of a company. Knowledge criticality is often perceived in different ways by people at the operational level than by people at the strategic level, so the idea is to collect both points of view and to look for an alignment later on. This workshop will present Steps and tools allowing to first identify critical knowledge domains from different points of view Align these points of view in order to identify where KM activities are most needed Each phase focuses on a critical component for success. 1. Knowledge Concepts: Developing a concept for KM in your organization based on your desired outcomes, identification of what is critical and relevant knowledge, the culture of your organisation, and an assessment of your KM maturity, Attendees will complete the workshop with an understanding of how to apply the model in their organisations context. This model helps you to focus on: Easily stated and easily understood outcomes Tied to select measures of (KM) success Tracked to existing strategic initiatives and measures of value. and your readiness to take on a KM investment. 2. Knowledge Strategy: Understanding the strategic plan of the greater organization of which you are part and the ensuring that the business case for KM investment over the longer term can be made. This includes developing a KM strategic plan that is linked to the overall strategic plan of the organization to ensure that there is funding and resources to sustain the investment. Measures of success are also discussed. 3. Implementing Practices: Your KM implementation should be based on your unique environment and desired outcomes - what makes sense in your context.

Workshop D
Designing a community of practice (CoP) for Strategic Purposes
Registration: Workshop starts: Workshop ends: Facilitated by: 12:30pm 1:00pm 4:00pm In this workshop, we will explore these sustainability and vibrancy issues facing CoPs and go even further. In the style of a clinic we will focus on defining results and how those results can be achieved (similar to an incubation model), we will to use examples from the participants and see how CoPs can be leveraged for both non-profit and for-profit business purposes - business intelligence, trend spotting, inclusive innovation, social or behaviour influence and product/service development and delivery improvements. A few themes to highlight are: Role of CoPs as Change Agents Leveraging Change to increase CoP Engagement and Impact Communities of Practice as Business Intelligence About the workshop: Communities of Practice (CoP) have traditionally been implemented to gather people with a common area of interest with the hope that they will participate in an open and common dialogue to resolve issues and solve problems. Many CoPs are left to languish in multi-focus information sharing and low participation. However, some can be very successful.

Each speaker will present a case study for 25 minutes and conclude their presentation with a question to the audience. The remaining 15-20 minutes of each session will be given to the audience to discuss the speakers talk and the question at their tables before going into a traditional Q&A. This conversational format is intended to create an informal, relaxed atmosphere in which you, the conference participants, can get to know each other, learn from each other and build relationships.
