Knowledge Management (KM) 101 - LEADERSHIP
The Role of Leadership in achieving a Knowledge Ready Organization
KM101: The Role of Leadership in achieving a Knowledge ready organisation
The successful implementation of KM in organisations is determined by the strategic dimension and direction of leaders in that organisation.
Expressed explicitly in the year 1999 “Knowledge Management: Executive Summary” and year 2000 “An Investigation of Factors that Influence the Management of Knowledge in Organizations” Leadership is one of the most important and key factors to successful KM. This remains relevant today and for many years to come as leaders drive change.
Leaders create the boost for business performance Engaging people to learning and change.
In this one day KM101 session, targeted at Mid and senior leadership, we will cover on how leaders can (i) influence the KM strategy, (ii) support km initiatives (iii) enhance the KM culture within the organisation and (iv) ensure KM Success in the Team/Organization.
The session will cover academic and practical examples and is scheduled for 10th May 2018.
