‘Connecting Worlds’

The 2009 International Conference on Organizational Learning, Knowledge and Capabilities (OLKC) has as its theme ‘Connecting Worlds‘. OLKC is a leading international conference for researchers in the area of organizational knowledge and learning. This year’s theme provides scope for a development focus on knowledge management.

There is, so far, only a smattering of academic research relating to ‘KM4D’ (most notably by Colin McFarlane 2006), so this is a great opportunity to introduce KM4D more widely as an academic discipline. Why is this important? Such research explores whether the assumptions which we may have regarding the potential value of KM4D are indeed valid, which approaches work, and why. And if development is understood as a knowledge-intensive sector (as in the IKM Emergent programme), new insights into the effectiveness of knowledge management can contribute to enhancing development practice.
