Background and Focus

Knowledge Management is the process of capturing, storing, sharing and retaining critical information within the organisation. Effectively managing the knowledge and experience of employees increase the efficiency and productivity. The KM system is any kind of IT system that stores and retrieves knowledge to improve understanding, collaboration, and process alignment. Knowledge management systems can exist within organizations or teams and they can also be the centre of the knowledge base for user or customers.

Enterprise-wide knowledge bases and a systematic knowledge management discipline are critical for the new, post-pandemic world. Thinking about strategic exploitation of knowledge to understand new emerging markets, creating the conditions for radical innovation, shifting the context on design thinking and so on. A complexity sub-stream would also be interesting – the field is in growth mode at the moment. This growth is the renaissance of Knowledge Management.

The focus of the event is on better decision making and innovation, drawing on Knowledge Management, design thinking and complexity theory and sense-making to manage in a VUCA world. [Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity].

Knowledge management is undergoing a renaissance. Three big trends have provoked a rebirth in knowledge management:

1. First, a less passive, more proactive approach to Knowledge Management. Companies want their employees to share what they know and have the tools to discover what they don’t.
2. Second, hybrid workplaces, where employees’ work spreads across a mix of the office, work-from-home, and everywhere in between.
3. Finally, organisations realize they need to stop treating knowledge and knowledge management as separate, discrete functions. That was the old world.

TARGET PARTICIPANTS

Executives of Multinational Companies; Strategy advisers, companies in oil and legal sectors, librarians, those working with KM data. Persons working within Agile roles. Public sector organisations.

TOPICS TO BE COVERED

  • Smarter Strategies / Innovation and Technology – how KM can create new business opportunities.
  • KM with Everything – applying a ‘knowledge lens’ to all facets of the business.
  • Human-centric KM – understanding the social and cultural dimensions of KM.
  • Tapping Tacit Knowledge – mapping your ‘know-who’ and then putting in place mechanisms to capture and share this knowledge.
  • Personal Knowledge Management – individuals create, develop and manage their own information and knowledge more effectively.
  • Cultivating Communities – how inter-organizational communities of practice (and purpose) can be the en-gines of innovation.
  • Collaborative Technologies / Social Media- exploiting the power of social and collaborative technologies
  • Meaningful Measures – developing realistic ways of measuring the value of knowledge and knowledge management.
  • Commercializing Knowledge – knowledge as a business: turning KM inside-out by exploiting your knowledge as knowledge products and services in the wider marketplace.
  • Governance and Ethics – taking responsibility for your knowledge assets

Code of Conduct & Diversity

UNICOM’s Code of Conduct & Views on Diversity

We at UNICOM strive to be a leading provider of knowledge to the business community and to engage the global business community as a specialised provider of knowledge. We strive to do this maintaining a culture of co-operation, commitment and trust. We want every UNICOM conference and training day to be a safe and productive environment for everyone – a place to share research and innovation and to build professional networks. To that end, we will enforce a code of conduct throughout all our events. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

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.
