CoP has been hailed as an effective tool to retain, share tacit knowledge and adopt a common practice among likeminded people. However, many CoPs fail to take off, remain dormant, or difficult to sustain. To redress these problems, this workshop offers hands on experience in building a CoP, designing its activities, onboarding its members and help participants to deal with the challenges CoPs commonly faced at different stages of their growth. It goes through the strategies for growing and sustaining a CoP as well as the tools to support knowledge sharing in a CoP. Participants will learn about the challenges and how to deal with them at every stage of a CoP.

Apparent differences in thinking, priorities, behaviours and culture usually leads to conflict and stress. However, what if the “heat” this Creative Friction could be harnessed as a force to fuel harmonious transformation? In this workshop we will “play” with the differences in perspective in the room to spark insights rather than conflict. When mindsets can adjusted to being more open and criticisms are expressed to add value rather than destroy credibility, these differences become opportunity rather than problems. Well designed and facilitated games enable us to shift our thinking from focusing on resolving problems to creatively reimagining what is possible! We will explore some approaches to resetting the mindsets of mixed teams and bringing harmony between digital and cultural aspects to generate synergies from the diversity of perspectives available.

Co-creative teams are a new powerful resource to companies. Effective and creative teams are slowly transforming from projects groups to co-creative teams. This transformation takes time and requires changing and improving all business process, people and results. A mindset change is required accompanied with new principles and rules.

During their Masterclass, Vadim and Olga will talk about the key steps that team should adopt to become co-creative teams and they will share some secrets on things they should pay attentions to. How to agree on goals? Who is the team leader? How to share results? How to inspire and motivate team members?

Vadim Shiryaev & Olga Smirnova

We live in the most exciting of times. The simultaneous advances in the Pure Sciences, Cognitive Science and Technology and their confluence have thrown up unimaginable possibilities. ‘What the mind can conceive and believe – it can achieve’ now holds true. Whether it is new business models (Uber, Airbnb) or advances in computing (Big Data and Analytics) or new technologies (3D Printing, Industry 4.0) or the confluence of multiple streams (Computing power, Code, Cognitive resulting in AI, Robotics, Driverless Cars) the advances are rapid and disruptive.

It is also frightening! What is going to happen to ‘work’ as we know it? What about Knowledge Work, Knowledge Management and the KM Professional? Are machines going to replace it all?

In this workshop, came and learn about the evolving role of KM and the KM Professional and how one must prepare to stay ahead of the curve. The workshop will help you with answers to ‘What am I uniquely good at? What is my comparative advantage? How do I rethink my role? This preliminary assessment could be the start you require to prepare yourself for the Digital Era. 

The Master Class will be peppered with Case Studies and actual Real World examples. The participants will be involved through exercises and activities. At the end of the workshop the participants will leave with a blueprint to navigate their future in the Digital Era.

Most Organizations conduct Lessons Learned post a major activity. And the bunch of Lessons Learned are dutifully uploaded on the KM Portal. But how does one know if the right knowledge is captured? And how does one ensure that the knowledge is put into circulation and value is realized from the exercise? It is important to understand the power of a well conducted lessons Learned and how critical it is to leverage the knowledge across the organization.  

Using his vast experience across sectors, the workshop leader will share his learnings and insights on how to make the entire exercise powerful and provide Returns on Investment to the organization. Participants will be able to identify with the situations and learn the techniques to make the Lessons Learned Sessions meaningful. They will also learn how to create the pull for the Lessons Learned so that it spreads quickly across the organization and specifically to those who need to use the insights.

As part of the government initiative Thailand 4.0 the National Innovation Agency (NIA) has tasked the TRIS Corporation and the Institute for Knowledge and Innovation, South-East Asia (IKI-SEA) to develop an “Innovation Capabilities Assessment Model” for listed companies and state enterprises in Thailand.  The purpose of the model is to raise awareness about innovation in the country, by assessing and then elevating innovation capabilities of Thai firms.  During the initial phase of the project the research team from IKI-SEA has performed an extensive literature review on existing innovation assessment models.  Based on that initial synthesis the research team developed an innovation capabilities model consisting of  7 pillar.
This short workshop intends to extend the 7 pillar model by involving the participants in a series of activities to generate main assessment criteria for each of the pillars and then determine a measurement level for each.  Once a set of criteria has been developed the participants will then engage in a round table discussion for each of the pillars to debate shortcomings of the proposed model and to provide additional feedback.   AS a result of this short workshop participants will obtain a general view on how to assess innovation capabilities in an organization.  Moreover, the conclusions of the roundtable debates and feedback will assist the research team to operationalize the Innovation Capabilities Assessment Model, which can then be validated in the next phase of the project.

Understand, using tangible criteria how the value chain model can be adapted to KM. This approach aims at identifying  what is the value chain for corporate knowledge, in order to manage the knowledge transformation process in the organisation, up to the best knowledge performance.

One of the challenges that a Knowledge Management Practitioner faces is identifying and prioritizing Organization Knowledge relative to the Business Context of the Organization. Success in this can create goodwill and sustained support for KM.
The Cynefin Framework is a delightful tool for this purpose. Unfortunately, very few people understand the power of the framework. The Cynefin Framework was one of the first frameworks for KM based on sound science. It has survived and evolved with the changing times and is one of the few tools that are still relevant and one that is continuing to evolve.

In this workshop the participant will gain an appreciation of the Cynefin Framework and its use in KM Strategy formulation, KM Implementation and Impact measurement. The workshop will be peppered with real life examples and participants will be encouraged to challenge the faculty with actual situations they face in their organization. So the workshop is a very practical learning session.

The implementation of collective innovation strategies requires for each involved organization to develop efficient learning processes such as absorptive and desorptive capabilities. Even so, all collective strategies does not lead always to the emergence of a business ecosystem. In fact, few collective strategies has led to the emergence of business ecosystems. Several key factors explain this situation:
  1. The coordination process involved requires the development of an adapted platform.
  2. The relationships between the involved organizations must ensure a shift from cooperation to collaboration to coevolution.
  3. To trigger a coevolutive sequence between the involved organizations, their learning processes must combine internal and external learning capabilities.

To be actionable, this combination of internal and external learning capabilities has to reach the same level among all the involved partners. Therefore, the organizational and inter-organizational readiness is of central importance to trigger a coevolutive sequence. As this initial sequence set the business ecosystem emergence, its raise involve ecosystemic capabilities development. They constitute a particular type of dynamic capabilities which enhance inter-organizational coordination and ensure the providing of the needed skills and services to all involved organizations. Most frequently, these ecosystemic capabilities are provided by dedicated firms within the ecosystem. Therefore, this category of firms can rarely survive outside the ecosystem. Moreover, the core competences of these firms constitute a new particular type of learning process.
