Larry Prusak speech @ Sydney University now available

5 September, 2011

The DOKTOR Research Group at the University of Sydney was delighted to host a dinner with internationally renowned researcher and consultant, Larry Prusak on 18 July 2011.

A noted authority in his field, Larry has lectured and published widely. and was the founder and Executive Director of the Institute for Knowledge Management at IBM engaging in advancing the practice of knowledge management through action research. Larry has had extensive experience, in the US and internationally, in helping major organisations and corporations such as Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, NASA and World Bank work with their information and knowledge resources. He has also consulted with many US and overseas government agencies and international organisations. He is a Professor of Practice at Columbia University in their Information and Knowledge Strategy Program and is the co-author of Working Knowledge, which has sold over 100,000 copies and been translated in 12 languages.

In a major coup for the Business School of the University of Sydney the DOKTOR Research Group was able to entice Larry to come to Sydney. In his four days with us he engaged in a very powerful video interview, provided individual time for discussions with many academics and PhD researchers and was the keynote speaker at a dinner on July 18. At the dinner Larry gave an engaging and inspiring talk about knowledge in organisations, sharing stories of his experiences working in the knowledge field for over 30 years. He also spoke at length about his forthcoming book on organisational judgement. The dinner was attended by practitioners and academics, who enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk with Larry.
