1. KM developments in HK: Lessons Learnt from over 100 projects – Eric Tsui
This talk will comprehensively summarise the KM and Intellectual Capital developments in Hong Kong with particular emphasis on the adoption and evolution of various KM techniques and systems in the city’s transformation into a knowledge-based economy. Much of the data is gained through the extensive number of projects executed and events hosted by the HK KM Society and PolyU’s KMRC in the last 3 years. Amidst all the project statistics, there are clear signs that local organisations are utilising more and more soft-side KM techniques but at the same time robust KM systems, Web 2.0 tools are also being deployed to enhance collaborations and knowledge navigation.
Appointed as the Professor of Knowledge Management at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University under the President’s Distinguished Professionals Scheme in September 2002, Eric joined the university as a full time staff in March 2005. He teaches Business Process Management and conducts research into Knowledge technologies, Cloud-based Knowledge-as-a-Service, and Blended Learning. He has also consulted for many government departments and private organizations in Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei. Prior to joining the university, he was Chief Research Officer, CSC Australia specialising on knowledge management, innovation, and expert systems projects.
