KM Impact Challenge Webinar: Perspectives on Monitoring and Evaluation of Knowledge Management

A KM Impact Challenge Event hosted by the Society for International Development (SID) Washington DC Knowledge Management Workgroup and The Knowledge-Driven Microenterprise Development Project


Please join us for a KM Impact Challenge live presentation and webinar on Thursday, January 27 at 12:30 pm EST at 1211 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC.  The event will feature two presentations on the monitoring and evaluation of knowledge management. In the first presentation, a research team from IKM Emergent will present an overview of the programs' experiences grappling with the inherent challenges of monitoring and evaluating knowledge management.  They will describe the journey they have undertaken as a collective enquiry into the world of M&E of KM, present the concept of multiple knowledges and discuss how one particular model can help us better learn about our KM efforts.  For the second presentation, the KM Impact Challenge team will present and discuss preliminary findings, including common challenges, promising methodologies and lessons learned from case stories and other resources that have been shared to date via the KM Impact Challenge. 


IKM Emergent is a five year research program focusing on emergent issues of information and knowledge management and international development.  It is based on an international network of practitioners-cum-researchers, challenging current practice of information and knowledge management in the development sector through its focus on 'multiple knowledges'.
