​​[​​KEYNOTE] BIG DATA: FRIEND, PHANTOM, OR FOE?

In the past five years there has been a 10-fold increase in Google searches for the term "Big Data." Clearly there is considerable interest in the term; however, is Big Data helping executives make better decisions? Does Big Data empower, liberate, or overwhelm decision makers? After briefly tracing the roots of this new domain, John will share some example of Big Data is action through the lens of knowledge management. This thought provoking and rather critical exploration will encourage participants to rethink if Big Data should be in their KM toolbox. Join John Girard for an engaging and entertaining gallop through the fields of Big Data.
APPLYING “AGILE” IN DEVELOPING KM STRATEGIES ​AND IMPLEMENTING FRAMEWORKS​
​​
"Agile" Development Methods, which are based on solid KM fundamentals, can be effectively applied to the development of KM strategies and implementing frameworks themselves. This session will present and explain a practical, "agile" based methodology for developing "fit for purpose" and context relevant KM strategies and implementing frameworks that (1) incorporate a KM pilot project "up front" as a primary source of insight for strategy development and framework implementation, and (2) are based upon "Fast Learning" fundamentals that need to be taught to the organization for long term KM success and are part of the foundation for "agile." Join Bill to
  • Understand "Agile" KM Strategy Development  vs. "Common" Development Approach
  • Understand the value of the Pilot Project and a method for effective Pilot Project Selection 
  • ​Understand an "Agile" based process for KM Strategy and KM Framework development and implementation through continuous learning while piloting.

[KEYNOTE] KNOWLEDGE SUCCESSION: SUSTAINED PERFORMANCE THROUGH STRATEGIC KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

To KNOW SUCCESS in a sustainable manner, individuals, teams and organizations need to actively manage their KNOWledge SUCCESSion.  That is, understand what they need to know, how they come to know it, when they need it (not forgetting what needs to be unlearned or adapted to keep it relevant for future application). KNOWledge SUCCESSion is a new strategy for achieving optimal performance amongst emergent complexity. It is much more than just capture or transfer of knowledge and works best when closely aligned to the overall organizational strategy. As a driver of innovation and capability development it stimulates the creation, transfer and application of knowledge in short term cycles to generate value and learning though doing and reflecting. Stimulating creative interaction across the organisation to share experiences and stimulate knowledge development and transfer is the connecting glue between interdependent disciplines and the lubricant for success. As such it builds foundations, insights and capabilities for the next stages of organization evolution and provides resilience towards the winds of change.

COLLABORATION AS STRATEGY: THE IMPACT OF RELATIONAL CAPITAL ON ORGANISATIONAL RESILIENCE​

The power of the network is something many understand intellectually but haven"t yet built a strong conviction about. 

"The encouragement and adoption of collaborative networks in an organisation contributes to resilience and increased ability to respond and adapt to change..." 

You have probably read something like that before, even seen some research on the power of collaboration, but have you taken advantage of it? This interactive session will give you the chance to personally experience the power of collaborative links. From it you will gain insight in to one way these links shortcut traditional hierarchi​es and inspire you to think about how your business can encourage these links to develop.

CO-CREATION: IMPLEMENTING THE SAVA INDUSTRIAL KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME​​

Vadim Shiryaev will be sharing the deeper insights in implementing an Industrial Knowledge Management Programme called SAVA. The programme has managed to catalyze the transmission of knowledge from the well-known and established experts to the younger specialists in the organization (industry). This diffusion of expert knowledge amongst the younger generation in the organization as resulted in the creation of many new and useful projects. The insights will focus on the three domains of Strategy, Culture and Impact when multicultural, cross-functional, geographically scattered and administratively independent teams were created to perform cooperation, collaboration and co-creation:​ 
  • Strategy: how to create an expert community for several thousand people that meet in the virtual and digital space as compared to the traditional meeting physically in arranged events.
  • Culture: the role of creating common understanding, principals and rules accepted by all members of the team focusing on Culture, Leadership and Inspiration. 
  • ​​Impact: how as a result, a number of innovative and break-through projects that were created.
