on "Resilience and managing complexity"
David Snowden discusses one of the most powerful tools available to organizations when trying to understand the environment they operate in: the Cognitive Edge Cynefin Model (published in the Harvard Business Review). He explores the meaning of simple, complicated, and chaotic domains from the perspective of strategic and operational planning. Perceived as an invaluable asset to senior managers, David will leave you with a deep insight into just how complex your environment is, while giving you ways in which you should respond.

David Griffiths - Founder of K3-Cubed Ltd 
"Do you know how to manage know-how?"
What differentiates one service-driven firm from another? Beyond qualifications, what differentiates one employee from another? What is your competitive advantage founded upon? Succession planning: what knowledge skills and experience are needed to develop the next generation of executives? What do they look like? How will you develop them? These questions lead to the big question: Do you know how to manage know-how? David addresses these questions in the context of knowledge management and the differences between “traditionalist” and “adventurist” organizations.​​

David Gurteen - Founder of the Gurteen Knowledge Community &
Gurteen Knowledge. 
on "Using knowledge cafés to power connected know-how."
David Gurteen looks at the value of connected know-how for today’s organizations. David blends his experience of the worldwide use of his Knowledge Café concept with the practical need to connect, develop and use know-how.
