The Henley KM Forum

Established in 2000, the Forum brings together business practitioners, industry thought-leaders and experts/academics to help organisations tackle the challenges presented by the knowledge economy. The ongoing programme of workshops, seminars, discussion groups and highly focussed research projects spans key issues affecting most large organisations today.

These projects have led to the practical guidance that has been collated in the “Knowledge Works” handbook. Each year, members of the KM Forum identify issues and topics that are important to their organisations and which would benefit from collaborative study. A working group is formed, led by a member co-champion and an academic co-champion. Over the course of about eight months, the focus is refined, data is collected and the implications considered by the group. Academic papers and practical guidance result from projects as the explicit intention is to balance research rigour and relevance.

The KM Forum events are held at the attractive Henley Business School near Henley on Thames. The KM Forum project conclusions are presented at an annual conference which attracts world class speakers.
