Distance Learning Workshop 2: Knowledge Management Strategy and Case Studies


Two major problems in KM are: (1) knowing whether or not you are really doing KM rather than something else entirely, and (2) deciding on an appropriate KM strategy with various technique, tool, policy, and program components. This workshop is a guide to solving these two problems

This Workshop applies the conceptual frameworks developed in the Gateway Workshop to three case studies of purported KM interventions: The Partners HealthCare, Halliburton, and Hewlett-Packard cases, and also to an analysis of the present state of KM in your own organization. It moves from there to a treatment of three contrasting high-level KM strategies and to the Policies, KM and Knowledge Processing Techniques, Information Technology Tools and KM Programs that could be used to implement strategies. At each stage of the analysis there is interactive discussion about which alternative policies, techniques, tools, and programs might be used in your organization. The Workshop Syllabus is available here.

The Workshop is taught by Joseph M. Firestone, Ph.D. Dr. Firestone's credentials are available here.
