Knowledge management is a broad field that encompasses an array of topics - content governance, communities of practice, enterprise search, taxonomy and ontology design, and even Artificial Intelligence and machine learning. As practitioners, we know that it's imperative to prioritize those KM efforts most important to the organization in question, but it can be difficult to be objective while balancing the expectations of your stakeholders. In this session, we'll explore how to use Design Thinking as one tool to help facilitate the scoping and prioritization process with your stakeholders rather than for them. We'll begin with a brief overview of Design Thinking and its value in the KM space, and end by exploring three different prioritization techniques that you can take back to your own organization.

SPEAKER BIO: Claire Brawdy is an expert in Knowledge Management, and leverages the best user-centered approaches, including Agile and Design Thinking, in order to engage the end user in KM strategy, design, and implementation processes. She is an adept facilitator, visual thinker, and product owner, focused on collaborating with stakeholders to achieve real solutions. As a product owner, Claire uses her diverse array of technical and business qualifications to successfully execute efforts ranging from strategy and design, to implementation and management. In both her role as a KM Consultant, as well as in her facilitation and training, Claire leverages Design Thinking as a tool for creating, executing, and sustaining knowledge management efforts, while increasing stakeholder buy-in and ownership. Claire additionally is an instructor for the Knowledge Management Institute, where she teaches a Certified Knowledge Specialist course on Agile and Design Thinking.
