As they grow, many organisations become more hierarchical and their formal structures may result in rigidity and silos. This masterclass introduces you to a methodology that will enable you to tap into your collective intelligence and focus on value creation.
In this session you will identify strategic goals for your organization and learn how to accomplish them by unleashing the genius of your teams. You will learn a methodology to facilitate the work of your organisation and how to capture and share the key knowledge it produces.
During the session we will discuss a range of key concepts and will carry out a series of exercises to gain a good understanding. We will present a series of topics related to knowledge, such as the difference between knowledge and information, what a knowledge asset is (and what is not), taxonomy vs ontology, stigmergy as well as the role of knowledge in boosting collaboration and informal networks. 
We will divide the attendees in four groups of five, and each group will choose a real-life challenges. Throughout the session, the groups will be able to apply the concepts learned to solve the challenge in a collaborative way.

Who is this class for?
This class is particularly useful for people who work at organisations of more than 15 members, who want to to tap into their collective intelligence, build institutional memory, become more efficient, agile and adaptable, and stimulate creativity and innovation.
To make the most of the class, we recommend you come with a strategic objective for your organisation for the next 6 to 12 months, which will help you make the most of the exercises.

  • What is knowledge and why it matters
