KIN: Foundation for Knowledge Sharing Communities of Practice

Registration Required

What is a Knowledge Sharing Community and why is it important?

Sharing knowledge effectively and efficiently is a constant challenge for many organisations and a strong way to address it is to facilitate the connection between individuals who have the most to learn from each others, be it either virtually or face to face or both.

With so many different barriers like geography, stopping people with a common interest connect regularly and share tacit knowledge, communities can play a vital role in accelerating this and delivering value to your evolving organisation.

This course will help you understand what is needed to develop knowledge sharing community, from research before launch, building up participation and measuring and confirm the success.

The goal of this course is to provide a good foundation understanding of knowledge sharing communities and the challenges, and provide practical techniques to easily implement back in your organisation to ensure your knowledge sharing communities add value to both the organisation and the members.

Course Outcomes

  • Confirmation of the best practice methodology for develop knowledge sharing communities
  • Understand typical obstacles to influence and overcome
  • Know the core concepts, techniques and supporting platforms which help accelerate knowledge sharing communities
  • How to measure the value from your knowledge sharing communities
  • Confirmation of next steps to best support new and mature communities in your organisation.
