M208 - Go Viral! Motivating Employees to Share Their Knowledge

Mon, May 07 | 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM | Room: 28

We never want for information in everyday life. Have a problem? Just Google it! Unfortunately, everything changes when we go to work. Enterprise social networks are barren. Information repositories are filled with outdated junk. The knowledge we need remains hidden in hierarchical silos and training materials. Employees are left to fend for themselves---often with negative results. In this session, you will dig into the knowledge-sharing behaviors that have become so commonplace in our daily lives and share specific tactics to activate these behaviors in the workplace. You will explore the role of technology and identify the capabilities that best enable user contribution. The speakers will discuss proven methods for motivating employees to share what they know and seek out information to solve problems on their own. And they will demonstrate how strategic curation can help your organization's knowledge go viral.

Application on the Job:
Apply real-world knowledge-sharing behaviors in the workplace.
Motivate knowledge sharing at scale within your organization.
Leverage shared knowledge as the foundation of your organizational learning strategy.
