“KEYNOTE: Digital Literacy: What’s Required to Survive the Digital Transformation”This talk will focus on an extension of Singapore's perspective on digital fluency, what's required to not merely survive, but thrive in the knowledge economy, as proposed by the Infocomm Media Development Authority of Singapore. They propose a set of three skills that are required, namely, technology competency, information literacy, and media literacy. At NTU, we have discussed this framework in-depth, and found it to be inadequate. We have added four additional components: (1) health literacy (the ability to obtain information to make sensible personal health decisions) ; (2) common sense (practical knowledge and judgment required for us to live in a reasonable way); (3) wisdom (deep understanding that balances multiple perspectives); and (4) advanced numeracy (mathematical skills to identify, locate, act upon, interpret or communicate a problem). It is this extended model that will be presented during the keynote.
Dr Lee is currently the programme director of the MSc (Knowledge Management) and MSc (Information Studies) programmes offered by the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information at the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore. He is a chemical engineer by training, but furthered his studies in the areas of information science and knowledge management. In addition to NTU, he has also held teaching positions at the Singapore and Temasek Polytechnics.

“Masterclass #5: Building and Sustaining a Community of Practice ”CoP has been hailed as an effective tool to retain, share tacit knowledge and adopt a common practice among like-minded people. However, many CoPs fail to take off, remain dormant, or difficult to sustain. To redress these problems, this workshop offers hands on experience in building a CoP, designing its activities, onboarding its members and help participants to deal with the challenges CoPs commonly faced at different stages of their growth. It goes through the strategies for growing and sustaining a CoP as well as the tools to support knowledge sharing in a CoP. Participants will learn about the challenges and how to deal with them at every stage of a CoP.
“KEYNOTE: Managing Knowledge in the Age of Digitalisation”With the advancements of internet technologies, cloud computing and hardware, digitalisation is indeed revolutionalising the manufacturing, products and services industries. This seminar will discuss the power of cloud computing, with all the massive array of equipment, software, and connections, functions as a canvas for orchestrating and delivering flexible knowledge services including crowdsourcing, ideation, micro-tasking and human-machine cooperative problem solving. However, in order to exploit the potential of the Cloud, some major unlearning and lessons learnt gained from Big Data research are needed. The second half of the talk will showcase a range of Big Data achievements from various industries including automobile, healthcare, transportation and retail. Success in Big Data not only requires an analytical and intuitive mind but often require unlearning e.g. need to let go exactness for approximations. Among other things, one may need to bypass casual explanations and pattern matching to fully exploit the power of Big Data. New algorithms need to be developed. This talk will conclude with recommendations on managing knowledge in the age of digitalisation.

“Masterclass #4: The Evolving Role of KM and the KM Professional in the Digital Era- Industry 4.0, AI and more”We live in the most exciting of times. The simultaneous advances in the Pure Sciences, Cognitive Science and Technology and their confluence have thrown up unimaginable possibilities. ‘What the mind can conceive and believe – it can achieve’ now holds true. Whether it is new business models (Uber, Airbnb) or advances in computing (Big Data and Analytics) or new technologies (3D Printing, Industry 4.0) or the confluence of multiple streams (Computing power, Code, Cognitive resulting in AI, Robotics, Driverless Cars) the advances are rapid and disruptive.
It is also frightening! What is going to happen to ‘work’ as we know it? What about Knowledge Work, Knowledge Management and the KM Professional? Are machines going to replace it all?
In this workshop, came and learn about the evolving role of KM and the KM Professional and how one must prepare to stay ahead of the curve. The workshop will help you with answers to ‘What am I uniquely good at? What is my comparative advantage? How do I rethink my role? This preliminary assessment could be the start you require to prepare yourself for the Digital Era.
The Master Class will be peppered with Case Studies and actual Real World examples. The participants will be involved through exercises and activities. At the end of the workshop the participants will leave with a blueprint to navigate their future in the Digital Era.
“Workshop #3: Designing Effective Lessons Learned Sessions to enable KM ROI”Most Organizations conduct Lessons Learned post a major activity. And the bunch of Lessons Learned are dutifully uploaded on the KM Portal. But how does one know if the right knowledge is captured? And how does one ensure that the knowledge is put into circulation and value is realized from the exercise? It is important to understand the power of a well conducted lessons Learned and how critical it is to leverage the knowledge across the organization.
Using his vast experience across sectors, the workshop leader will share his learnings and insights on how to make the entire exercise powerful and provide Returns on Investment to the organization. Participants will be able to identify with the situations and learn the techniques to make the Lessons Learned Sessions meaningful. They will also learn how to create the pull for the Lessons Learned so that it spreads quickly across the organization and specifically to those who need to use the insights.
“Workshop #6: Using the Cynefin Decision Making Framework Effectively for KM”One of the challenges that a Knowledge Management Practitioner faces is identifying and prioritizing Organization Knowledge relative to the Business Context of the Organization. Success in this can create goodwill and sustained support for KM.
The Cynefin Framework is a delightful tool for this purpose. Unfortunately, very few people understand the power of the framework. The Cynefin Framework was one of the first frameworks for KM based on sound science. It has survived and evolved with the changing times and is one of the few tools that are still relevant and one that is continuing to evolve.
In this workshop the participant will gain an appreciation of the Cynefin Framework and its use in KM Strategy formulation, KM Implementation and Impact measurement. The workshop will be peppered with real life examples and participants will be encouraged to challenge the faculty with actual situations they face in their organization. So the workshop is a very practical learning session.

“Masterclass #2: Can games stimulate a cultural transformation that embeds digital agility?”Apparent differences in thinking, priorities, behaviours and culture usually leads to conflict and stress. However, what if the “heat” this Creative Friction could be harnessed as a force to fuel harmonious transformation? In this workshop we will “play” with the differences in perspective in the room to spark insights rather than conflict. When mindsets can adjusted to being more open and criticisms are expressed to add value rather than destroy credibility, these differences become opportunity rather than problems. Well designed and facilitated games enable us to shift our thinking from focusing on resolving problems to creatively reimagining what is possible! We will explore some approaches to resetting the mindsets of mixed teams and bringing harmony between digital and cultural aspects to generate synergies from the diversity of perspectives available.
“KEYNOTE: Leading teams to connect the dots for Digital and Cultural Transformation”“Connect the dots” is funky statement to make, but only the best leaders engage their teams to do this in a sustainable way to increase competitive advantage and market share. Stereotypically, the type of person who is deeply informed about leading edge digital technology trends, is not typically the type of person that can creatively transform these ideas into desired products and services, let alone envision what these means in a customer-led market. We are in the age where optimised performance comes from the power of digital analysis supports creative cross-functional teams to co-create new futures in accelerated time. Possessing, applying and retaining existing knowledge is insufficient to remain as the market leader in this environment. We outperform the competition by co-creating new knowledge continuously as it is the new knowledge we creatively deploy that has us transforming the future of others, rather than responding to what others have created for us to react to. This session will explore how we can open mindsets and embed behaviours to enable rapid transformation where digital agility becomes part of our cultural success.

“LIGHTNING TALK: Convergent Knowledge Nuggets”Connected extracts from “Convergence” Book by Peter Watson, 2016, Simon & Shuster
“The Idea at the Heart of Science: how the Different Disciplines are coming together to tell one coherent interlocking story, and making science the basis for other forms of knowledge.”
Since 1850 various disciplines have been identified with “converging and coalescing connections between [mathematics] physics and chemistry; psychology and biology; genetics and linguistic;” [and multiple other disciplines.]
Watson argues that…”the idea of the conservation of energy and Darwin’s theory of evolution were introduced in the decade of 1850… and revealed unimagined interconnections and overlaps between disciplines” 3 IBID that continues to the present.
“Covert KnowNs (Technology)” this paper conceptualizes that the Technologies of this 21st Century are morphing in similar ways toward multiple versions of converged, futuristic, hybrid technological evolutions. Such developments will be the basis for ad hoc publications of the possibilities of such Technological Convergences in comparing developments in US Government areas of Transformative Technologies and independently researched areas by TechCast Global, an academic/commercial 20 year forecasting organization.

“Masterclass #7: The Intelligent Social Change Journey: Transformation and change in a connected world”The Intelligent Social Change Journey (ISCJ) is a developmental journey of the body, mind and heart, moving from the heaviness of cause-and-effect linear extrapolations, to the fluidity of co-evolving with our environment, to the lightness of breathing our thoughts and feelings into reality. Occurring in a world boasting unprecedented connectivity and grounded in development of our mental faculties, these are phase changes, each building on and expanding previous learning in our movement toward intelligent activity.
“KEYNOTE: The Culture of Connection”There are new cultural norms centered around the ease (cooperative/collaborative energy) of the exchange of ideas, and the resultant entanglement, often global in nature, as those ideas grow and expand. This emergent culture—context sensitive and situation dependent, just as knowledge and truth—transports the threads of historic cultural concepts into a virtual reality, embracing collective diversity and contribution while weaving a fabric of understanding among individual beliefs, values and experiences. Our lives as individuals, and as part of larger organizational structures, will never be the same.

“Workshop #4: An Innovation Capabilities Model for Thailand”As part of the government initiative Thailand 4.0 the National Innovation Agency (NIA) has tasked the TRIS Corporation and the Institute for Knowledge and Innovation, South-East Asia (IKI-SEA) to develop an “Innovation Capabilities Assessment Model” for listed companies and state enterprises in Thailand. The purpose of the model is to raise awareness about innovation in the country, by assessing and then elevating innovation capabilities of Thai firms. During the initial phase of the project the research team from IKI-SEA has performed an extensive literature review on existing innovation assessment models. Based on that initial synthesis the research team developed an innovation capabilities model consisting of 7 pillar.
This short workshop intends to extend the 7 pillar model by involving the participants in a series of activities to generate main assessment criteria for each of the pillars and then determine a measurement level for each. Once a set of criteria has been developed the participants will then engage in a round table discussion for each of the pillars to debate shortcomings of the proposed model and to provide additional feedback. AS a result of this short workshop participants will obtain a general view on how to assess innovation capabilities in an organization. Moreover, the conclusions of the roundtable debates and feedback will assist the research team to operationalize the Innovation Capabilities Assessment Model, which can then be validated in the next phase of the project.

“Workshop #7: The learning processes involved in Business Ecosystem emergence and development”The implementation of collective innovation strategies requires for each involved organization to develop efficient learning processes such as absorptive and desorptive capabilities. Even so, all collective strategies does not lead always to the emergence of a business ecosystem. In fact, few collective strategies has led to the emergence of business ecosystems. Several key factors explain this situation:
- The coordination process involved requires the development of an adapted platform.
- The relationships between the involved organizations must ensure a shift from cooperation to collaboration to coevolution.
- To trigger a coevolutive sequence between the involved organizations, their learning processes must combine internal and external learning capabilities.
To be actionable, this combination of internal and external learning capabilities has to reach the same level among all the involved partners. Therefore, the organizational and inter-organizational readiness is of central importance to trigger a coevolutive sequence. As this initial sequence set the business ecosystem emergence, its raise involve ecosystemic capabilities development. They constitute a particular type of dynamic capabilities which enhance inter-organizational coordination and ensure the providing of the needed skills and services to all involved organizations. Most frequently, these ecosystemic capabilities are provided by dedicated firms within the ecosystem. Therefore, this category of firms can rarely survive outside the ecosystem. Moreover, the core competences of these firms constitute a new particular type of learning process.
“LIGHTNING TALK: The key role of KM in innovation corporate internal and external learning processes”Innovation requires organizations to develop, maintain and enrich their learning processes especially in knowledge intensive industries. As the volume of knowledge, skills, and /or intellectual property to control to finalize one single innovation has increased exponentially over the last decades, the classical internal R&D process is now more and more completed with a collective strategy of innovation. To be sustainable over products/services lifecycles, both innovation logics (open/closed) implies an adapted knowledge management to ensure, the variation, the selection and the retention of the needed knowledge, skills and IP. Moreover, the knowledge management applied must also ensure the corporate capability to recombine internal procedures and routines to align the functional competences of the firm with the strategic innovation goals. Therefore, knowledge management has become a key asset for corporations to develop their dynamic capabilities and achieve the shift from closed to open innovation strategies.

“KEYNOTE: Leading the cultural transformation through a knowledge lens”Today’s leaders have grown up with a world of knowledge at their fingertips. To many of them, the best answer to every problem is a simple one and all too frequently we see the complex and often negative side-effects of this approach.
How then do we draw our managers, leaders and CEOs toward more holistic and sustainable approaches to building their organisations?
One way is to create a culture where these underlying and unpredictable costs are talked about and considered as a natural part of the decision-making process.
Drawing from his recent experiences in an exciting fintech start-up, Stuart will lead an interactive conversation about ways to achieve this in your organization.
“Masterclass #9: Relearning how to learn - how to empower change and resilience in a digital economy.”The stories of medieval guilds controlling commerce from the 9th-18th centuries is relatively well known. Less talked about is the amazing practices they used to pass knowledge and expertise from one generation to the next. Despite radical cultural and economic change, the guilds were wildly successful at preserving and adapting knowledge for each new era.
Many understood that it was the interative teaching and mentoring practices that sustained their 900-year reign, and from their ashes, the modern trades were born. As the dominance of the guilds faded away to be replaced by universities and academies, however, most modern knowledge work begame heavily theory-based. At first this economically superior method created millions of jobs. Today those jobs are being automated and now, once again, the knowledge-laden creative roles are the ones we need humans to fill. It seems this ancient knowledge transfer success story has much to teach us about the way we grow our businesses today.
This workshop will discuss some of the historic methods, how they are being used today, and how they can be supplemented in a digital age. With examples, discussion and an interactive activity we will examine how these techniques can be applied to your place of work.
With a Master’s degree in Knowledge Management and many years in high-tech, high change environments, Stuart applies KM principles to digital transformation projects to help companies maintain their ability to communicate and innovate as they grow in size and structure.

“LIGHTNING TALK: Managing digital change in a financial environment”Given the increased competitive pressures to invest in integrated systems for financial management, the ability to successfully implement these types of systems is probably of greater importance today than at any other time. As systems have evolved as an institutional core within organisations, a recurring problem associated with failed implementation is poor change management. Much of the existing literature focuses in detail upon technical aspects, with relatively little work examining social aspects.
The work presented in this presentation differs in that the focus is upon the behavioural aspects of the implementation process, specifically upon the perceptions of the system users and the managers of the implementation process. The presentation presents the key insights on the approach taken, the challenges faced in managing resistance to a new technology, and the communication model that was employed in the implementation of an integrated financial management system within a private sector organisation in Malaysia. The results highlight five main areas that appear to cause particular concern; training, communication, user management, planning, and system administration.

“LIGHTNING TALK: Harnessing shop floor knowledge - The Tata Steel way”A methodology to capture and horizontally deploy the available knowledge.
Background: In manufacturing industries like the steel business, the profile of employees includes executives, managers, engineers and shop-floor employees. The knowledge requirement of a top executive is quite different from that of a line manager, which in turn, is different from those who perform the work on the shop-floor. While there is a basic need for putting systems and processes in place to enable knowledge sharing across all levels there is even a greater need to convert the captured individual knowledge in to organizational knowledge by means of horizontal deployment and standardizations. Keeping these things in mind, at Tata Steel we conceptualized and designed a process called MASS – ‘Manthan Ab Shopfloor Se’ in August’05.
The Process: The process of MASS is a 8 weeks time bound process driven by a shop-floor employee or a front line executive. The process of MASS initiates with the selection of a theme or topic, e.g. Life of Steel Ladle Refractory, Surface defects, Effective Inspection, Mill availability Safety, Energy Conservation, etc. This is followed by selection of the MASS Leader and a senior facilitator from the department. The four phases of MASS is described below:
- Scope identification
- Knowledge Harvesting
- Detailing and Syndication
- Implementation planning
Implementation Phase – Phase 4 is followed by Monthly implementation review by departmental heads and reporting the status to KM group. The process is concluded by conducting a site audit (only after implementation of more than 80% of identified practices) to ensure irreversibility and horizontal deployment of implemented practices..
In brief the key objective of this process is:
- Horizontal Deployment of available Knowledge (which exists in our KM repository, improvement projects, Kaizens and Suggestions given by our own people and the minds of experts).
- Identifying existing Best Practices of one’s own department and making it available to others.
- Tapping the enormous Experience & Potential of employees at shop-floor in finding solutions through brain storming sessions (Manthan Sessions).
- Creating ‘Change Agents’ at shop-floor.
An Electrical Engineer graduated in 1989 and then joined Tata Steel.
For around 11 years he worked with various operation and maintenance departments of Power System. At the same time he got an opportunity to work with Mckensy (world's renowned consultant), in Total Operational Performance (TOP), one of the most successful improvement initiatives of Tata Steel so far. TOP has changed the thinking process at Tata Steel and the improvement has become a way of life. Amit got a chance to work in various capacities in the TOP process which includes the role of a Change agent, facilitator and finally headed the Cost and Implementation group (CIG). CIG was responsible for ensuring the timely implementation of all improvement projects and reporting the KPI based accrual for all the departments.
In the year 2000 when Community of Practices was launched within Tata Steel, Amit was given the responsibility of being the convener for the largest knowledge community of maintenance engineering. This community was recognized as the most successful community within Tata for two consecutive years. Becoming convener was his first association with the central knowledge management group. This association improved and expanded over time and eventually transpired to Amit being given the responsibility of heading KM initiatives within Tata Steel in 2004. This meant designing and continuously improving the processes for complete life cycle of knowledge i.e.capture-store-disseminate-reuse. The process has to meet the diversity of levels (Shop floor, executives and Sr. Management), functions (Manufacturing, IT, HR, Marketing, Maintenance etc..),literacy level (Illiterate to PhD and MBAs)and geographical locations. Different approaches to meet all these diversities have been institutionalized.
In 2015 Amit was picked up for an overseas assignment and was placed as Vice President, Capital projects and Business Excellence in Tata Steel Thailand. In the current role he has been able to institutionalize an improvement framework including knowledge management which has helped the company to get many accolades in the area of Business Excellence which includes national and international level recognition to Small Group Activities, recognition at Tata group level for innovation and Tata Business Excellence Model (based on Malcom Baldrige model).
Widely traveled and participated in various international forums as recipient of awards and Key note/ guest speakers. He has addressed participants at various international forums like APQC (American Productivity and Quality Center), World Knowledge Forum & KM Korea at Seoul and KM Australia.
A few of his International Publication - includes (1) “Manthan – a process for extracting and disseminating knowledge from Shop floor employees” and(2)“Leveraging knowledge across value chain” .

“Workshop #10: Communities of Practice: Nurturing the knowledge sharing & learning environment”Purpose
Communities of practice have been found to support knowledge creation by enabling knowledge sharing among experts and practitioners in organisations. Developing a virtual community of practice provides a platform to share a domain of interest about which can be communicated online. It was realized that practitioners share resources (from experiences, problems and solutions, tools, methodologies). Such communication results in the improvement of the knowledge of each participant in the community and contributes to the development of the knowledge within the domain.
The workshop seeks to explore strategies and set up processes of cultivating a virtual communities of practice in the public sector industry. The aim is to learn more about the strategies, techniques and challenges that need to be addressed in order to support the fragile process of setting up a new community of practice.
This workshop will be based on a case study research project where a virtual community of practice was implemented in a public sector organisation. The purpose of this workshop will be to explore the set up process of cultivating a virtual community of practice and the areas that will be discussed, will be – what major issues can be identified during the set-up phase, the critical success factors and way-forward plans to sustain this knowledge sharing initiative.
We will draw our experiences on the creation of virtual communities of practice (VCoPs) for public sector organisations in Malaysia. These VCoPs were designed to provide a convenient and conducive platform for knowledge-seeking professionals and forward-leading organisations to leverage on the community, collaborate for professional advancement, develop their competencies and create strategic alliances.
This workshop will be conducted via participation in exploring the trends in stimulating the creation and sharing of knowledge related to best practices within the user community. This case provides a practical focus designed to help managers successfully build a guided community of practice towards supporting informal learning within their organisation.
Proposed outcomes of the workshop
This workshop will provide a practical focus designed to help managers successfully build guided communities of practice towards supporting informal learning within their organisation. More specifically, the implementation model can be useful for any organisation who intends to implement a community of practice in their organisation.

“Workshop #11: Inquiry-based learning in digital and cultural transformations”In this new digital era, new generations of workers and students need new adapted approaches and environments for learning. Traditionally the textbook and the instructor have been the sole knowledge repository and the lecture, the only method of instruction. The learner has been the passive receiver of information and has been spoon-fed information by the instructor.
Time has come to evolve such approaches to better fit the needs of the 21st century learners. Human learning is characterized through observing, reflecting and organizing information. Questions and problems naturally arise from this learning process. Driven by the changes in our communication habits also the ways we conduct surveys and how companies acquire knowledge have changed. On the example of “mobilizing” a corporate survey about the “status quo of the learning organization in Thailand” Dr. Boondee Bunyagidj and Maik will present how inquiry-based methods improve interactivity and how mobile devices can become the method of choice to build more efficient surveys and powerful learning solutions.
