Jane Dysart, KMWorld conference chair, and founding partner and curator of curiosity, Dysart & Jones Associates, recently reflected on the importance of in-person learning and interaction at KMWorld 2022 and offered a preview on what’s ahead for attendees. The conference will be held November 7–10, 2022, at the JW Marriott Washington, D.C.
It has been about 3 years since the last KMWorld conference. What are you looking forward to most?
Definitely the interacting with people, networking, and the sparks that fly as ideas are exchanged at this vibrant knowledge-sharing event. We have really missed in-person discussions and learning from each other for the last several years. The KMWorld Knowledge Cafe´ on Thursday morning is one of the most popular events at the conference. Another community and networking area is the KMWorld Bookstore, where attendees can purchase books, have them signed by KM authors, and discuss their ideas with speakers and colleagues.
Why is it important for people to attend this in-person event now?
A lot has happened in our work and with our technology over the last several years. Collaborating seamlessly and globally has improved so much, it will be great for our attendees to learn from each other and from the solutions providers exhibiting in the KMWorld showcase.
KMWorld 2022 addresses the human and technology factors of collaboration and knowledge augmentation via AI, the sharing and reuse of knowledge with new tools, the human roles that are even more important than the tools, the hybrid workplace shift in traditional organizations, strategic versus operational knowledge, understanding and aligning with the big organizational or community picture, leadership skills driving knowledge adoption and reuse, especially from outside the organization, such as the environmental and sustainability movement. KMWorld features new, creative knowledge-sharing tools and techniques as well as human strategies that have an impact on all types of organizations and communities. Join us and take home exciting insights and ideas to apply in your environment or community.
What is the theme of the conference this year and how is it reflected in the sessions?
The theme of this year is People Driving Knowledge Sharing: Innovation, Resilience, & Agility. In a challenging global environment, knowledge sharing is even more critical for successful and sustainable organizations. They require resilience, agility, and flexibility in navigating and supporting hybrid workplaces and spaces as they face the new realities of our world; and it’s the people in those organizations who drive knowledge sharing.
