This talk focuses on increasing digitalisation which lead to the emergence of the networked economy. Though knowledge remains the only infinitely renewable resource in organisation, the traditional value disciplines pursued by organisations and societies have been constantly challenged. In the networked economy, value is typically created by exchange of data and information leveraging off the network effect. The speaker will place particular emphasis on how digitialisation will impact knowledge management together with the associated challenges and oppoo.ortunities. Data, cloud and people hold the key to success. KM tools and technologies that will play significant roles will also be outlined, together with industries and organisations that can accomplish quantum improvements after successful digital transformations.
