Join Reed Smith's Director of Practice Innovation, David Pulice, for his panel entitled "Knowledge Management - Beyond Technology Solutions (a.k.a. Back to the Future)." Knowledge Management can be defined as the “coordination and exploitation of organizational knowledge resources in order to create benefit and competitive advantage.” (Peter Drucker) Technology plays an ever-growing role in Knowledge Management, providing a means and a process to retain, store, coordinate, update and share best-practice information – the “know-what” of the Knowledge Management concept. Capturing the “know-how” is a more complex task. A panel of three senior legal department managers, from small (<10) to large (>25) departments, together with a moderator, will lead this roundtable discussion. The panel members will briefly describe their departments’ Knowledge Management initiatives, goals and technologies. The primary focus of their discussion, however, will highlight the indispensable roles that mentors, subject matter experts, training, coaching, succession planning, cross-disciplinary teaming and other non-technology sharing techniques play in successful, value-adding Knowledge Management programs.
