Thursday, October 21, 13:45 - 15:15 + 15:30 - 16:30 Experience Exchange Session

In our fast-changing economy, companies need to be capable of adapting quickly to a changing environment. This agility is only possible if companies adopt new ways of knowledge and competence development. The knowledge maturing approach aims at making these developments more continuous by overcoming barriers and disruptions, which is tightly coupled to organizational development processes.

Within the track, results from a large-scale European study on knowledge maturing are presented, which analyze barriers and specific conditions like organizational culture that affect knowledge maturing. Case studies from companies share the lessons learnt from successes and failures of such organizational development processes.

In the experience exchange session, we will collect the experiences from the participants on the impact of organizational culture on sharing and developing knowledge within an organization. Also participants will be able to discuss about organizational development processes.
