I am attending the International Conference on Knowledge Management in Columbus, Ohio. This conference covers many different areas in KM, extending from the theoretical to the practical. I'll be posting on the sessions as I attend them. The key note speakers really showed this dichotomy. The first speaker was a CEO of a consulting company, talking about a new KM system his firm has created. The second speaker was a KM theoretician, who spoke about the need for accountability, performance, and professionalism within KM.
