Chat topic "Knowledge Management for Non Profits"
During this chat we will dig deeper into knowledge management for non profit organizations!
Most non profit organizations have taken steps in adopting some sort of knowledge management strategy, although approaches have varied quite widely, as has the terminology used, and the levels of investment made.
The promise and potential of these initiatives has often yet to be fully realised. But clearly, the knowledge and learning approach can and does provide useful tools and approaches, which, if properly, consistently and thoughtfully applied, can help address some of the symptoms of the institutional malaise faced by modern non profit organisations.
What has tended to happen is that non profit organisations have generally leaned towards linear and technocentric interpretations of knowledge management, in line with the descriptive early traditions of KM and organisational development or ‘institution building’.
Is this still true?
During this chat we will talk about experiences, approaches and best practices for knowledge management in non profit organizations.
We hope to see you there!
