An Introduction


The knowledge based economy is fast becoming a reality. Globalization, increasing computing power, higher bandwidth, the Internet revolution are some of the underlying forces enabling this expansion. Organizations of all types and sizes have to now be continuously asking the central question - how do we become a knowledge based organization ? However to become a knowledge based organization you have to embrace a knowledge based business model. How does a company become a successful knowledge driven organization ? How can it develop, morph, evolve and thrive as a knowledge fueled enterprise ?   
Key Topics we will explore :-
mental models, attitudes, knowledge business models, knowledge mapping, knowledge pattern recognition, running scenarios and simulations, knowledge strategy, knowledge enabling technology platforms, leveraging the e-knowledge market idea, harnessing intellectual capital, infrastructural capital, and customer capital, people, processes, technology, case histories, e-business, e-learning, community, measurement, new valuation and measurements, seeking the killer application, launching learning adapting and sustaining growth.

Who Should Attend ?
This seminar is designed for entrepreneurs, business leaders, CEO's, CFO's, CIO's, CKO's , knowledge managers, business architects and strategists, and other interested executives.  It is also ideal for teams of business leaders who are looking for innovative insights, creative direction, powerful methodologies and frameworks, and new thinking to help them power up their knowledge based enterprises.
Why Attend ?

The Knowledge revolution being unleashed by the recent mapping of the human genome, is a potent indicator of the powerful way knowledge is unlocking new pathways to solving human problems. The spread of foot and mouth and mad cow disease is a yet a useful reminder of how ignorant we still are of many things and how connected we all potentially are. This seminar provides you with an opportunity to step away from running on the current business treadmill. It helps you to reflect on how effectively your organization is addressing the central question of  how do we build a powerful knowledge based business ? And are we doing it thoroughly enough, fast enough, and deeply enough to yield enduring and sustainable knowledge performance well into the future ?
You are exposed to independent, advanced, new thinking in knowledge management. This will help you to better understand, interpret, adapt and respond, to the challenges emerging from the growth and spread of the global knowledge based economy.  This seminar will also be helpful at both a personal and professional level. It is just as important to be developing You Inc, as it is to be building your organization's knowledge based business. This is moreover, a unique opportunity to leverage the wisdom and experience of a smart group of other attendees with shared interests. It is a perfect environment in which to begin to build new knowledge relationships. It is a quality way to expand your knowledge network. Ultimately this seminar will not equip you with all the answers to the main question. However, it will arm you with insight, understanding, greater clarity, and methodologies, frameworks, and practices for making your own blueprint, developing your own specific answers, and translating those into effective action. It will help you to see your own ignorance and one pre-condition of wisdom, is to know what you don't know. You will certainly be positioned to take your knowledge game, to a whole new high performance level.
