2. Welcome to KM Asia 2010: Collaboration and Innovation
Now, more than ever, we need to move knowledge management forward within organisations. This will be achieved by not just looking at new possibilities, but also
taking hold of them and moving them forward through collaboration and innovation. We will be bringing you unique and insightful perspectives on knowledge
management and collaboration. We have also changed the format to allow for a more interactive and relaxed environment, by starting each day with an ice breaker session.
Prominent international keynotes, industry practitioners and MAKE Award winning organisations will demonstrate how the implementation of these ideas and tools can be
successfully implemented, along with the challenges and successes that can be encountered along the way.
