Many of us are trying to find ways to effectively measure and demonstrate the results of our investments in knowledge and learning. The Knowledge Management Impact Challenge aims to accelerate this discovery process by gathering and exchanging stories of what works and what doesn't. The KM Impact Challenge, sponsored by USAID and conducted in collaboration with KM4Dev, collected a total of 47 case stories, providing a rich diversity of experience across sectors and continents describing a wide range of different KM initiatives and an assortment of assessment approaches.
All of these stories have been analyzed to enhance our shared understanding of the challenge of measuring the impact of KM by identifying our common challenges, key lessons and outstanding questions. These findings have been compiled into a synthesis report which is now available for download.
After a peer review process by the Technical Advisory Group (TAG) the KM Impact Challenge Top Finalists and the Travel Award recipients were announced. Some of these top finalists will be sharing their experience at the upcoming KM Impact Challenge unConference.
On May 5th and 6th, top case story authors and KM and M&E practitioners met in Washington, DC, for the KM Impact unConference. Participants from around the world also joined the unConference via the webinar on both days and on twitter. Thank you to all who participated in the unConference in person and via webinar!
Please see the wiki for summaries and highlights of the in-person discussion sessions from the unConference.
Participants impressions and take-aways were captured in short videos during the event, watch the unConference videos
The recordings from the webinar are available together with the presentations that can be downloaded.

At the UnConference unfolding in Washington DC she provided participants with some background information on the objectives behind the KM Impact Challenge, the international community it has mobilized, the number and types of cases stories it has collected.
