Knowledge Management Australia Congress is in its eleventh year and over this period we have seen KM go through many
changes, answer many questions and confound many people. KM has changed as often as the social media landscape has
changed, bringing many challenges but also opening many doors for collaboration and innovation.
In today’s world, knowledge is the greatest asset for an organisation. It is also the most reliable
investment. Knowledge translates into revenue and assures continual stability, progress and
advancement. The question is, how do you manage it effectively and how do you break down
barriers so it can be collaborated successfully?
Knowledge Border Crossings focuses on knowledge sharing between
different industries and across an organisation. The emphasis is to
bring a varied mix of industries to share their journeys, and thereby
collaborate across fields.
We are proud to have back with us Dave Snowden, a leader in knowledge
management; he is an international authority on the application of complexity
theory to organisations and has worked with Ark Group Australia since 2004.
We are also excited to bring you several international knowledge practitioners who will be
presenting on their knowledge management projects and initiatives they have implemented in
their own organisations.
