Knowledge Management: What is it?
In its report on the Thematic Evaluation of Knowledge Management Networks in the Pursuit of the Goals of the Millennium Declaration (24 March 2006), the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services recommended, among other things, that the Secretariat Task Force on Knowledge Sharing develop a Secretariat-wide knowledge sharing strategy to promote the role of knowledge networks in strengthening knowledge sharing within the Secretariat and with external partners as well as to develop a model and methodology for how those networks can best work.
To help staff understand this new Secretariat-wide endeavor, Linda Stoddart, Chair of the Task Force on Knowledge Sharing will give a presentation on “Knowledge Management: What is it? Will it really make us effective?”. This will be followed by an interview with Bruce Strong, an expert in Knowledge Management, on the impact of knowledge sharing initiatives in a variety of organizations. The event will take place on Wednesday, 6 September 2006, in the Dag Hammarskjöld Library Auditorium at 11 a.m.
Bruce Strong was instrumental in revamping the knowledge management programs of PricewaterhouseCoopers and the World Bank, and has led the effort to develop strategies in this area for several prominent organizations.
The United Nations has embarked on the development and planning of an enterprise content management system. To help staff understand the issues around this topic, the Dag Hammarskjöld Library has organized a presentation by Martin White on Managing Information and Knowledge in Organizations : Making Effective Use of Enterprise Search and Content Management Systems. The event takes place on Monday, 22 May 2006, in the Dag Hammarskjöld Library Auditorium at 11 a.m.
