KMWorld Magazine is celebrating its annual Conference on November 14-17th, with this year’s topic being Hacking KM: People, Processes, & Technology.
Hacking and hackathons are perhaps better known in the geek community, but KMWorld 2016, is taking a page from their book and looking to hack, or change in our case, our ideas, strategies, and practices in using processes and technology to engage our communities. Organizations are changing – flattening their structures, encouraging creative and innovative practices, engaging audiences in different ways, utilizing technology to streamline and connect people in new and exciting ways. To be successful, today’s organizations have to look at things with different perspectives, 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!
This year’s theme, Hacking KM: People, Processes, & Technologies, will look at novel ways to support knowledge sharing and organizational culture. It will examine processes and technology to foster collaboration between self-organizing and cross-functional teams to promote early delivery and stimulate innovation, continuous improvement, and encourage rapid and flexible response to change. We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event!
