Advanced Course in Knowledge Management

This two day course will be presented by the Henley Forum on 17th and 18th July 2019.

Quick initial reaction to the two day Knowledge Management course - I’ve been trying to think when I’ve been on a course that was so intense and so practical and relevant and so instantly useful.”

Effective knowledge management improves individual and organisational performance by creating channels for knowledge to flow across organisational boundaries. This prevents the loss of value and opportunity when lessons aren’t learnt or valuable knowledge isn’t available to those who need it; builds the capacity for joined up thinking to improve decision-making and innovation; and it creates organisational agility and resilience in a changing world by building the capacity to respond to early signals.
