Weekly Updates from All Announcements

MBI SIG Announcement: New Roundtable Event: Knowledge Strategies , 04 Feb 2014
Almost all the KIN Member organisations have an Organisational Learning or Knowledge Strategy or are in the process of updating it. There is so much that can be shared regarding sponsorship, stakeholder analysis, language, alignment with business objectives, resources and presentation of the strategy and measurement, that it makes sense to do this in a Roundtable. You are therefore invited to participate in this 'show-and-tell' Strategy Roundtable. We will also run some peer-assists if you have a defined problem that you would like help with. You are guaranteed to come away with new insights and practical techniques for making your knowledge strategy effecive and sustainable.
