Overview of talkPresentation Material

Looking at the practical experience of organizations pursuing Knowledge Management (KM), it is found that their efforts are primarily focused on creating the conditions and the context that will enable knowledge creation & innovation. This seminar proposes an integrated-view of KM – the “SETR Framework” – with special focus on the domains of knowledge creation, innovation and enabling contexts.

The SETR Framework reconciles multifaceted KM initiatives in a set of four interconnected arenas, i.e.:

      1. Strategy
      2. Execution
      3. Tools and 
      4. Results. 

Examples will be drawn from the speaker’s extensive research on KM and innovation in world-class organizations based in Brazil along the past decade.
