A presentation for the Managing Partners’ Forum. Separating the needs of the individual and those of then organisation has always been an issue for KM and Learning. At times these needs align, sometimes they need to be reconciled and at other times they diverge, particularly when an individual moves to another organisation. The presentation looks specifically at the changing nature of organisations and the emergent power of networks and networking. Personal Knowledge Management (PKM) is a competence we must all learn in order to remain relevant to our organisation. But who ultimately “owns” the ‘corporate’ knowledge that we gather through the workplace networks we nurture and sustain, and do the organisations we work for even recognise the importance of these networks as places for continual learning, knowledge sharing and incubators for innovation?
