This month’s editorial comment. By Simon Lelic.
With the final line-up of keynote speakers confirmed, the countdown to Global KM eXchange, one of the year’s most exciting knowledge management events, has truly begun.
As reported in last month’s issue, Dave Snowden, Debra Amidon, Hubert Saint-Onge and Steve Denning will all be hosting a keynote presentation, and they will be joined by Karl Wiig, Scott Cooper and Tom Stewart. A full conference featuring the likes of Richard McDermott, Scott Hawkins and Bob Bauer will support the keynote programme, together with a free exhibition showcasing the knowledge technologies and products of more than 50 companies.
Global KM eXchange will be the first event to look forward to the next generation of knowledge management, placing the discipline in a context in which success is measured by real, practical business gains. The combined conference and exhibition will focus on how to develop a truly holistic approach to KM, striking the right balance in terms of people, processes and technology.
The event is the first in a series of three major exhibitions planned by Ark Group and Knowledge Management this year. KM Asia 2002 is set to take place in July, while the third event in the KM Europe series will follow in November. Global KM eXchange represents the first time the magazine has been involved with such a large-scale project in the US, however, and is really shaping up to be something special.
Full details about how to reserve your place are available on www.globalkmexchange, and a special ten per cent discount is available to Knowledge Management subscribers. Hurry though, as over 1,000 people are expected to attend, and places are limited. I hope to see you there!
