Smart people, stupid organisation – Patrick Lambe (Thursday 3 March)

9 February, 2011

Smart people, stupid organisation: How do organisations produce ignorance and how can we overcome this?

Organisations process information to coordinate their activities, possess organisational memory, and adapt to changing environments, just as individuals do. But they are not the sum of the intelligence of their people. Organisations are often structured to ignore the knowledge that is at their disposal. In this talk, Patrick Lambe will describe some of the main forms of organisational ignorance and discuss with participants ways of overcoming this ignorance.

Patrick Lambe is one of Asia’s most respected knowledge and information management practitioners. Patrick is the author of Organising Knowledge: Taxonomies, Knowledge and Organisation Effectiveness (Chandos 2007), an Adjunct Professor at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, 2-term past President of the Information & Knowledge Management Society and a member of the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Knowledge Management.
