An effective change management system includes active knowledge management, leveraging existing process and product knowledge; capturing new knowledge gained during implementation of the change; and, transferring that knowledge in appropriate ways to all stakeholders.
This session will focus on three key areas of knowledge management as it enables change. It will provide an understanding of the principles of knowledge management, including: transforming data into information; the acquisition and creation of knowledge; and the some shared best practices for dissemination and using information and knowledge for the purpose of change management and building a quality culture.
Participants will gain an understanding of the nine wastes of knowledge and how each waste impacts change management. Understanding these types of waste allows the quality system to move toward a utilization of explicit knowledge as a basis of a well-functioning quality culture.
