Given the ubiquity of knowledge and information in this era, the processes of acquiring, producing, transferring and integrating this knowledge and information evolve according to need, time and purpose. With the emergence of new technologies and changing work cultures, it has now become essential for businesses to adopt efficient and effective knowledge management processes.
In this virtual ISKO Kenya event, we will look at the key processes that are redefining effective and efficient KM institutionalization in organizations. Felix Muriithi, Deputy Director Knowledge Management at the Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (KIPPRA) and an Executive Committee member of ISKO- Kenya Chapter, gives us practical day-to-day knowledge management processes from a practitioner’s perspective. Moses Wadeguh, seasoned KM consultant, CEO Phowad Solution Limited and President of ISKO- Kenya Chapter, describes trends in KM processes that every organization institutionalizing Knowledge Management should look out for.
Join other KM practitioners participating in the event who will also share the trends in KM processes they cope with in their KM journey, during the breakout sessions.
This will be a virtual meeting on Zoom.
The event is free, but prior registration is required.
