Equipping today’s knowledge & information manager for tomorrow

With some knowledge and Information Management Professionals now earning in excess of US $100k, the role is increasingly seen as being an essential multi-faceted function. Yet, as the spectre of artificial intelligence, machine learning and virtual reality looms large and with the imminent release of a set of KM Standards by the International Standards Organisation (ISO) today’s knowledge manager is facing a complex and challenging future. This presentation, drawing on Paul’s recent publications, “Navigating the Minefield: A Practical KM Companion’“ and “Knowledge Management Matters:Words of Wisdom from Leading Practitioners”, will look at these challenges and how KIM’ers might address them.
