SPEAKER: Larry Chait, Discussion Leader
TOPIC: Small/medium businesses (SMBs) are heavily represented within our KM community of practice; we also have members who work within groups in larger enterprises with limited resources to pursue their knowledge initiatives. The theme of this meeting came recently from a single member, but over the years, similar inquiries have frequently appeared. The discussion will focus on practices for gathering, sharing, and leveraging knowledge through minimally invasive, lower-tech, less-expensive solutions. Larry has been harvesting examples and experiences for a couple of decades – and he is sure you have your own. Typical situations with cautions and remedies for handling them will round out the topic. Whether you support ten, a hundred, or a few thousand people, there are sure to be ideas that will prove of value to you from this discussion!
