Communities of Interest

Wednesday, November 9 • 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

This year’s fun networking event is based around a new book by Stan Garfield, communities of practice guru and leader of a large, global KM community, SIKM Leaders. The 5 Cs of KM are:

1. Capture—the supply side of knowledge.

2. Curation—taking existing information and making it more useful.

3. Connection—supporting the demand side of knowledge (people to people, people to content, and content to content), enabling demand-driven or just-in-time KM.

4. Collaboration—interacting with peers and colleagues to exchange ideas, share experiences, work together on projects, and solve problems.

5. Creation—inventing and innovating new concepts, approaches, methods, techniques, products, services, and ideas that can be used for the benefit of people and organizations.

Join your colleagues for stimulating conversations around the 5 C’s of KM! This meet-up will take place in the hotel bar. A cash bar will be available.
