The 2012 European Conference on Knowledge and Mangement
The world economy in which we are living poses challenges that lead to a realization that ‘more of the same’ will be difficult to sustain. The 13th European Conference on Knowledge Management (ECKM 2012) provides an illustration that, in order to create new or modified knowledge practices, strengthen customer relationships and thus positively influence customer satisfaction, organizations must be flexible in configuring (combining) knowledge and knowledge structures in a way that is appropriate for delivering value to the customer. It must simultaneously develop effective strategies for updating the knowledge of its staff members necessary for underpinning the creation and delivery of appropriate knowledge services. Thus, unlearning (forgetting) becomes a critical means for organizational success. The ECKM community of scholars has already initiated dialogue that links its particular strengths to innovation issues. The 13th European Conference on Knowledge Management aims to further that dialogue by attracting leading edge work that leverages the ECKM community’s in-depth understanding of learning and unlearning to better understand knowledge management. Their aim is to stimulate breakthrough research streams linking learning, unlearning and knowledge management.
