In the post pandemic, VUCA world [Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity], modern technologies have changed the multidisciplinary approach to Knowledge Management. Modern technologies, notably AI, have made KM indispensable in developing strategic and systematic process in market and competitive intelligence and improving internal processes and communications supported by effective tools and technologies. The pace of change now is fast and furious and so organisations must build more resilient knowledge ecosystems and sense-making capabilities.

Arie van Bennekum, Co-Author of the Agile Manifesto
Agile is everywhere these days. Most organisations claim some sort of Agile but the benefits often are far what is from expected. People hide in roles, stick to some rituals but integrated delivery per sprint in an efficient, high value, high quality way seems still far away. Arie will talk about the next step in which delivery is integrated work of all disciplines getting to that sprint delivery that means production and extends that even outside the company, changing potentially the coding practices that not only create speed but value as well.
Helene Russell, KM Specialist, The Knowledge Business
As knowledge managers we want to encourage a learning mindset, to encourage knowledge sharing and learning from experiences, but what limits must this non-judgmental culture have and how/where do we draw the lines? How should we handle After Action Reviews and Retrospects etc and build an open, non-judgmental knowledge sharing culture, with these limits in mind? Whilst some mistakes are clearly not acceptable, how do we balance risk management with an open and non-judgmental learning culture in the grey areas? This round table will bring industry practitioners together to discuss this struggle and examine ways for you to navigate this difficult question.

UNICOM’s Code of Conduct & Views on Diversity
Our approach is that our events are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity or religion. We do not tolerate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of sessions or events, and unwelcome physical contact or sexual attention. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, Twitter and other online media. Event participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the event without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers. Please bring your concerns to the immediate attention of the event staff.
Diversity: In our endeavour to be the provider of knowledge to the business community, we understand that this depends on hearing from and listening to a variety of perspectives that come from people of all races, ethnicities, genders, ages, abilities, religions, sexual orientation, and military service. We welcome diverse speakers for all our events, we do not always fully achieve this goal, but it is an ongoing process.
We are inviting speakers – thought leaders, subject experts and start-up entrepreneurs – to share their knowledge and enthusiasm about their work and vision in these three fields. Please let us know too if you would like to participate in the panel sessions only.
We are also planning short “how to do” sessions or full-day workshops to run as pre or post conference events. Let us know if you have a related topic that you want to run as a workshop or an extended briefing.
Please complete the speaker’s response form submit a proposal to present at this event.
