At our June meeting we will be exploring the relationship between knowledge and learning in organisations.  With the recent rapid developments of social networking sites, it is arguable that while this relationship is becoming more and more complex, it is also becoming more and more vital for organisations to understand and leverage if they are to remain responsive and relevant.

So come along and meet others interested in knowledge management to learn from our Guest Speaker and share with each other!

Following Rob’s presentation you will have an opportunity to share with each other how, when and why you use social networking tools (such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and others) and how this sits with the question of “Knowledge and Learning” covered in the Guest Speaker presentation.

We all look forward to an interesting, stimulating, enjoyable and sociable evening of learning from the experiences of our guest speakers, and each other!

Ross Dawson – Implementing Enterprise 2.0 in the Real World

WHAT

Enterprise 2.0 combines two concepts. It is usually understood to be how web 2.0 technologies such as wikis, blogs, social networks and RSS are being applied inside organisations. However it is also about how enterprises are shifting their organisational structure and activities to be effective and competitive in a rapidly changing business environment. Because it is as least as much about culture change as technology, many organisations struggle with Enterprise 2.0 initiatives, held back by cautious executives, sceptical users, vested interests and lack of enthusiasm. Ross Dawson will examine the realities of implementing Enterprise 2.0, including the possibilities, the challenges, and the key activities that will drive organisational change and successful adoption.

WHO

Ross Dawson is a world-renowned strategy consultant, keynote speaker and best-selling author. He is a Chairman of Future Exploration Network and CEO of international consulting firm Advanced Human Technologies. Ross is author of the acclaimed Living Networks and the Amazon.com bestseller Developing Knowledge-Based Client Relationships, 2nd Edition, as well as more than 100 articles and white papers.
