KMWorld 2010 Conference and Exhibition
November 16-18, 2010 | Renaissance Hotel | Washington DC

The conference theme, KnowHow: The Knowledge-Driven Enterprise, puts an emphasis on "how to" achieve a knowledge-based, successful enterprise. We are seeking experienced knowledge, content, search, and intranet experts who can provide practical, hands-on information, case studies, and instruction that will maximize the value of the conference attendees’ technological investments. We want to share creative ideas for dealing with knowledge and intellect, talent and human capital, as well as content and other resources in open, diverse, and agile organizations.

KMWorld 2010 provides attendees with all the essential pieces of the information engine that powers the enterprise—including knowledge creation, sharing, finding, mining, reuse and more.

KMWorld 2010 uniquely blends opportunities to network with experts and peers while also providing concrete insights toward maximizing human capital and enterprise information resources.

Knowledge processes and practices drive decision-making and provide competitive advantage. Understanding the underlying technologies that support these processes and practices and adding "knowhow" of the tools, techniques, and solutions are key goals for KMWorld 2010.

KMWorld Key Themes:

  • Knowledge and content management
  • Creative enterprise 2.0 practices
  • Innovation strategies
  • Enterprise search strategies and tools
  • Records management
  • Compliance and e-discovery
  • Intranet strategies and solutions
  • Social networking and collaboration

Collaborative Businesses Succeed on an ECM Foundation

Business is inherently social: Every day, people work together, share ideas and communicate with each other and with customers and partners. And they do it in more ways and on more platforms than ever before. Teams and content are more and more decentralized, and digital information is increasing exponentially. The size of the digital universe is expected to roughly double every two years. . . .

Best Practices in Knowledge Management

KNOW THIS:  KNOWLEDGE IS ELUSIVE
 
Many knowledge management gurus will tell you that knowledge cannot be "managed," in the typical sense. Data can be managed. Information can be managed. But "knowledge" is in some kind of fourth dimension, outside of the reach of control.
 
Maybe it's a semantic argument. But there are plenty of people out there who are active knowledge managers--some with business cards that say so!--and spend their days managing their organizations' knowledge just fine, thank you very much.
 
But there IS a point to the pundits' argument: Knowledge is not easy to put your finger on. It's an ethereal thing; it's not simply data, and it's not simply "what's in people's heads" either. It's both. So to conduct knowledge management requires a deep understanding of the business AND the workers who walk in and walk out of your buildings every day.
 
The next KMWorld White Paper--"Best Practices in Knowledge Management"--will try to unravel that knot. If you have a way to address it, please contact:
