In a world where eBusiness is crucial for success, KMWorld 2001 focuses on one of the key drivers, knowledge management (KM). The conference provides a learning and sharing environment for those who want world class management for their organizations in the new digital economy. 

KM is an ongoing process and a journey of continuous learning and improvement. The competitive nature of organizations and the need to learn as quickly as possible requires individuals and organizations to focus on that which gives the most value and return. 

KM is expected to produce tangible, definable business results and can do so only when it is part of an organization’s “mission-critical” business processes. As KM becomes strategically integrated into an organization’s structures it becomes part of standard business processes, rather than a separate process. KM applications also become embedded in the organization’s line of business or operation. This conference provides examples, models, and strategies for enabling KM within your organization. 
KMWorld 2001 also focuses on the equally important human and technology sides of KM, providing many case studies of working KM initiatives. Our speakers share their experiences and provide solid suggestions and ideas for others. 

As David Snowden, one of our keynote speakers, says, we are “gardeners, influencing and encouraging self organization, allowing new and exciting meaning to emerge from the interactions and intuitions of communities.” I hope you will join us in Santa Clara for this stimulating learning opportunity.
