Sudanese Knowledge Society - May 2012

  2. 2. 2Background to (SKS) • The beginning of 2011 saw the birth of a community that emanated from the Workshop on Knowledge Management Capacity in Africa with the theme “Harnessing Tools for Development and Innovation”.

After the workshop, as a response to the increasing local interest in knowledge management, the group decided to build on the success of the workshop and continue the efforts of spreading the ideas and reflecting on the value and approach of knowledge management for the benefit of organisations, communities and individuals. • SKS is the body that embraces the ideas of this community.
