Since 1990s, there is an obvious shift from an information-based economy to a knowledge-based economy (KBE), which emphasizes on the production, distribution and application of knowledge and information. The tourism and hospitality industry is one of the first KBE sectors to apply large-scale utilization of ICT for the improvement of its service products. However, the nature of tourism and hospitality industry is heavily labor-dependant and span-organizational, which requires continuous knowledge management efforts within and outside of the organization.

This talk will address three issues, which are:

  1. KM and KM applications in tourism and hospitality industry;
  2. Knowledge demand and supply in tourism and hospitality industry;
  3. Challenges and opportunities.

Hopefully the talk will contribute to a better understanding of what knowledge is in need, who can supply the required knowledge and how that knowledge can be managed for the tourism and hospitality industry.

Collaboration is key to 21st century organisations by adding value and generating transformative insights from the sharing of knowledge.

Story gets through “attention spam” because it deals in memorable meaning, focuses on patterns and connections and delivers universal emotion and empathy.

Friday 13th July

The HKKMS is very happy to welcome Professor Constantin Bratianu for a meeting of the society on the 6th December @6:30pm.    Prof Bratianu, will discuss with members on the practical implications of the knowledge dynamics in organizations.

Talk Synopsis

Knowledge management focuses mostly on data, information and knowledge. However, the challenge of knowledge management is to understand and manage intelligently knowledge dynamics within organizations. Knowledge dynamics has been interpreted so far as knowledge flow, or as a transformation of tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge. More recently, knowledge is interpreted as spectrum composed of rational, emotional, and spiritual knowledge. In this new perspective, knowledge dynamics means transformation of one form of knowledge into another form. In practice, this phenomenon is essential in understanding people motivation, knowledge creation, innovation, entrepreneurship and decision making.

We are now delighted to announce a half day MasterClass given by one of KM’s top thought leaders, Paul Corney. The Masterclass will be held between 2.30 and 5.30pm on Monday 13th November.

 

MasterClass Leader : Paul Corney
Date : Monday 13th November
Time: From 2.30 and 5.30pm
Location: 17th Floor, Edinburgh Tower, Landmark , Central

 

 

The fee for HKKMS/KMIRC members will be HK$800, and HK$1200 for non-members. Places are limited. Please complete the registration form below to reserve your place.    Further details can be found below.

The MasterClass will address two themes of importance to the success of organisations;

“Creating a knowledge sharing environment: the role of HR & IT professionals”

Organisations that set out to create an effective knowledge sharing environment will need to overcome many barriers. Most are behavioural and societal, encompassing leadership and engagement. The role of the HR & IT professional in this process is key.

In facilitating this session Paul will draw on research conducted for his co-authored book “Navigating the Minefield: A Practical KM Companion” and numerous assignments carried out in Asia, Middle East and The Americas. He will identify potential drivers for the creation of a knowledge sharing environment, examine the pitfalls that are likely to arise and suggest how HR & IT can support such an environment.

 

“Reducing risk and enhancing value by capturing and exploiting an organisation’s critical knowledge”

Most organisations face the challenges of:

  • ensuring new joiners hit the ground running in the shortest time possible by equipping them with the knowledge and information they need to do their job
  • transitioning staff into new roles so that when they are reassigned they have sufficient time and access to the knowledge and information they need
  • capturing experience and knowledge from staff close to retirement, completing a project assignment, whose job might be disappearing or who are leaving to pursue another career so that their knowledge (and networks) are not lost.

 

Paul’s Bio

Paul J Corney is a well-known figure in the KM world, a prominent keynote speaker and Masterclass leader. One of the first ‘Knowledge Managers’ in the City of London in the mid 90’s, he has since advised global businesses on the creation and implementation of Knowledge Management programs.

About Professor Sidhu

Ikhlaq Sidhu is the faculty director and founder of UC Berkeley’s Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology. He received the IEOR Emerging Area Professor Award from his department at Berkeley. Ikhlaq Sidhu is an innovator with an industry background and the perspective of an academic. He teaches, advises, and manages people to enable impactful and relevant innovation, which today demands a different kind of leadership. From him, people learn how to create new things that are technically complex that will also actually have impact in the real world.

He is an innovator in the narrow sense (e.g. created 60+ patents, technology, and products) and he is an innovator in the broad sense (e.g. launched ventures, raised funds, founded organizations, led businesses, and navigated complex political challenges) within areas of data networking, telecommunications, and academics.

By now, Sidhu is probably most known for bringing an industry perspective to academia. He founded the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology in 2005 and launched its many spin-offs programs. With Ken Singer, he co-created the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship (for students) and the Berkeley Method of Innovation Leadership (for existing companies). Both of these frameworks add concepts of social-psychology, mindset, and journey to the traditional steps of innovation.

The spin-offs from his work at Berkeley include the GVL in 2008, the Fung Institute in 2009, the Engineering Leadership Professional Program in 2011, SkyDeck in 2012, the Innovation Collider in 2015, and Data-X in 2016.

Sidhu serves on several boards and advisory roles including Venture Advisor at Onset Ventures (a leading Silicon Valley investment firm), the Faculty Committee for Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley, the Board of Trustees of the Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Qatar, Fellow, Applied Innovation Institute, and the Faculty Director’s Council, Jacob’s Institute of Design at UC Berkeley.
