This year’s theme, Hacking KM: People, Processes, & Technologies, will look at novel ways to support knowledge sharing and organizational culture. To be successful, today’s organizations have to look at things with different perspectives, be flexible and fast, able to easily transfer and share knowledge, deal with zettabytes of data, innovate, engage and impact communities and customers in positive ways. The platforms, processes and programs have to respond in a timely fashion to make this happen and to keep customers satisfied. This year we will examine processes and technology to foster collaboration between self-organizing and cross-functional teams to promote early delivery and stimulate innovation, continuous improvement, and encourage rapid and flexible response to change.  Register today.
