Talk Synopsis

How can a mature organisation with its own cultural legacy change from a norm of knowledge hoarding to one of knowledge sharing? This talk will focus on lessons learnt as a knowledge worker in a major Hong Kong corporation, including some of the pains and some of the gains.

Danal will discuss how change management techniques combined with solid information architecture have been employed to aid Hong Kong’s multi-project railway expansion programme, achieving organisational change to enable improvements and innovations through knowledge sharing and collaboration.

The talk will focus on the application of practical KM tools and how the programme continues to evolve year on year to address current challenges and business needs.
