Special Interest Group on Knowledge Management


  New ways and Best practices to leverage Knowledge
How to help your teams to create, capture, share and capitalize Knowledge

Special Interest Group on Knowledge Management

23 & 24 May 2019, hosted by Michelin, Clermont-Ferrand, France


Companies have different ways to create, capture, capitalize and share knowledge: they can implement a new laboratory, work with startups, have deep interviews with customers, buy patents, use Artificial Intelligence (AI), etc. This knowledge though must be passed on to your teams, to each relevant individual.

The aim of our workshop is to highlight the best ways to reduce the time for you to create and transmit knowledge to your team and for them to capture, capitalize and share again this new knowledge. Some examples we can name already are design thinking, solution design, live capturing, browsing (instead of just searching, searching provides you more results usually), AI with deep learning and automation.

As a participant, you will have the opportunity to learn from experts and actively share your challenges, experiences and solutions in KM governance in carousel discussions.
