Organising Knowledge with Patrick Lambe (Tuesday 24 July)

9 July, 2007


Patrick will introduce the various forms that taxonomies can take, and how taxonomy representations like thesauri, hierarchies, matrices and facets are related to each other and how they differ. He will also discuss the emerging role of folksonomies, and if compelled to, the role of ontologies in the taxonomy arena. This talk will be based on material from his new book, “Organising Knowledge: Taxonomies, Knowledge and Organisational Effectiveness” (Chandos: 2007) – see below for Patrick’s special book offer for forum members.

One of Asia’s most respected knowledge management practitioners, Patrick was originally trained in Library Science. He arrived in KM via a second career in training and development, and has been based in Singapore for 16 years. Patrick is also an Adjunct Professor in KM at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
