KMRC Conference Blog: Edvinsson

Leif.png Leif is always fun and we start of with ginger scent being sprayed around the room and the audience being challenged as too how much potential they are using. Looking at the silver generation (I can buy that) as an asset. Tells us to write down a key phrase and its worth it: Trust is the bridge on which knowledge travels. Reminding us that when he set up the first knowledge centre in Scandinavia about his use of scent, the experience of entering into the centre was designed to change the way people were thinking by changing the...

KMRC Conference Blog: Patrick Lambe

Patrick.png Now in the build up to this conference Kim called Patrick a Gentleman; coming from the bands of Australia Women I know I am not sure if this was a complement or not! for He plays a game at the start and asks everyone to stand up, he then asks people who do not consider themselves experts to sit down. Of course everyone bar a few sit down and I mutter false modesty. Not sure what he is up to here but its to do with expertise and the management of expertise.

Two images up now. Firstly the rocket that got people to the moon the...

KMRC Conference Blog: Eva Lo

Eve.png Eva Lo is Director of Knowledge Management at the Langham Place Hotel. She wasn't at the dinner last night and I haven't heard her speak before so this will be new. Great opening, next you are around call in, ask for me on the 9th floor and I will buy you a coffee and we will talk KM. Strong on working with people, creating a knowledge sharing culture not people.

A traditional hotel is run like an army with military precision, everyone carries out orders, generals make all the decisions. OK I get the point but just for the...

KMRC Conference Blog: Sbarcea

Kim.pngI always enjoy talking with Kim (and her husband), intelligent understanding, pragmatic and intellectual. However she is going to talk about Communities of Practice which is not one of my favourite subjects. Her plan is two cases studies, one a seven year uninterrupted example and another is for political activists. All the slides by the way are of cats, which is a great comfort for those of us who are ruled by cats.

Her first case is government regulation and enforcement, mainly legal people trained to be adversarial and...

KMRC Conference Blog: Gorjestani

By Dave Snowden  ·  March 31, 2009  ·  Conference blogs

Nick.pngOK so its Tuesday in Hong Kong and the KMRC conference is about to start. Our first speaker is Nicolas Gorjestani who I first met in his World Bank days. A lot of the real work on narrative in the Africa Desk there can be attributed to his work and he has emerged in recent years as one of the main speakers. He starts on the current crisis and the need to change. Seventy billion dollars of value lost, where will it be recreated? Current crisis leads to his subject for today which is Mindset Changes in Knowledge Ecology.

Argues that...
