Knowledge Management: "Learning-by-Comparing" Experiences from Private Firms and Public Organisations - 8-9 February 2001, Copenhagen, Denmark

 

The aims of the seminar are to advance our understanding of knowledge management at organisation and enterprise levels in public and private sectors in the knowledge economy and to develop a framework identifying good practices of knowledge management. Furthermore, the seminar will analyse and compare how knowledge management is performed in different private firms as well as in public services and administrations and how the two sectors can learn from each other. Finally, the seminar will end with a discussion of knowledge management policies and practices in Denmark seen in an international perspective. The seminar will bring together 30-40 high-level participants from the private sector (knowledge and human resource managers); public sector management, academia (in the fields of business management, public management, economy); and policy-makers. The emphasis of the forum, like earlier and other forthcoming ones, will blend conceptual/policy issues with concrete case-study experiences based on an open dialog and discussion.
