The Knowledge Cafe?: Curiosity, Innovation, and Creating an Environment for Shared Project Knowledge

Talent Triangle Alignment:


Presentation Overview:

Knowledge is the most significant currency in today’s project-driven world. The current knowledge of an organization or an industry will be obsolete in two to five years, but the wisdom of its employees - a.k.a. Knowledge Workers - can potentially endure and curate a competitive edge in the project-driven workplace. In a world of daily disruptions, there is an urgency to capture, transfer, and retain the deep smart of an organization’s Knowledge Workers. Without the retention and application of the learned knowledge of those who came before us, our organizations will be poorly equipped to stay relevant in today’s constantly evolving environment of innovation.


Everyone can have their own Knowledge Café!It’s as simple as walking into your favorite corner café for a cup of coffee with friends. In this practical, caffeinated, and interactive Knowledge Café presentation, I will explain the critical nature of implementing a knowledge economy in the workplace. I will also lead exercises designed to stir and provoke curiosity for new knowledge creation, transfer, and application.
