Henley Forum Research Summit - Energising Knowledge Sharing

Energising Knowledge Sharing in Today’s Workplace

Research lead – Dr Christine van Winkelen

This research summit examines the trends and needs of today’s workplace. A Henley Forum survey of knowledge and learning specialists from 14 public and private sector organisations and agencies during 2017 has identified key factors impacting today’s dynamic workplaces and the impact these are having on knowledge sharing.  

  • Knowledge gaps are an increasing concern due to demographic trends, turnover, restructuring and new requirements being placed on organisations.
  • The boundaries across which knowledge needs to flow (physical, structural and cultural) are becoming ever more complex and varied.
  • Drivers for an increasing pace of work and resource optimisation are leading to a growing recognition of a more substantial and strategic role for knowledge management in the workplace, including using live data for better decision-making, more effective partnering and using communities to drive work flows.
  • Ongoing changes from technology developments and external pressures are impacting employee engagement, and this is undermining effective knowledge sharing.

These and other findings from the survey will be explored during a variety of practical group working sessions at the research summit.  Prompted by these and external research findings, sessions will aim to explore the responses that organisations are adopting to energise knowledge sharing in today’s workplaces. The final findings from the research will be presented at the Henley Forum annual conference in March 2018.
