What we'll do
This talk focuses on increasing digitalisation which lead to the emergence of the networked economy. Though knowledge remains the only infinitely renewable resource in organisation, the traditional value disciplines pursued by organisations and societies have been constantly challenged. In the networked economy, value is typically created by exchange of data and information leveraging off the network effect. Digitalisation alone is not a game changer; ting the right mix of digitalisation with knowledge and technologies is. Operating with the above doctrine, the speaker further explores how digitialisation will impact knowledge management together with the associated challenges and opportunities. Data, cloud and people hold the key to success. KM tools and technologies that will play significant roles in the digital transformation journey are accordingly identified, together with industries and organisations that are posed to accomplish quantum improvements upon successful transformations.
