KMWorld 2014

To be successful, today’s organizations have to 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. The culture of the organization, the people, enables the transformations and innovations—and well-oiled collaborative organizations excel at leading the charge!

Heard at Past KMWorld Events:

  • Overall some great presentations from folks that know what they are doing.
  • [There is] a wealth of knowledge to be gained from the presentors, attendees and vendors.
  • Useful information provided that you can take back to your company and immediately apply.
  • [KMWorld] Should be seen as one event that brings together leaders and SMEs on subject of Knowledge Management.
  • This was a great place to get a wonderful variety of ideas and to start to understand some of the "known unknowns" and to begin to ferret out some of the "unknown unknowns".
  • It showed me the future of what my facility can be in KM because there are those out there already doing it.
  • It covered a broad range of topics/issues within KM, so would be good for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners.
