The Ideas Economy Seminar 1. Toronto. October 30,  & Nov 30, 2001. Other Dates TBA.  

                                                                      IDEAS FUEL THE FUTURE !

This is a half-day seminar about Knowledge Management, with a radical difference. We don't get lost in semantics and debates of questionable value. We cut through the normal KM hype and noise. We go straight to the heart of the matter. We put our spotlight, plumb on a subject that is very straight-forward and easy to understand - IDEAS. We use ideas as a simple lens through which we can address common knowledge management issues in the firm. We are all swimming in circulating pools of ideas, all the time. Learning how to swim effectively in these pools can be the difference between sinking and swimming. Our simple proposition is that Ideas are too important a resource today to be left to ad hoc management and chance. Individuals and companies need to approach this subject with greater Insight. Those that have a deeper understanding and play creatively and well with ideas will have a good time. Those that don't won't.
