A knowledge sharing culture can help you and your organization deal successfully with change and globalization, but creating such a culture can be a challenge. This session introduces the requirements for success and the tools for facilitating collaboration. It focuses on how the information centre can take a leadership role to encourage knowledge sharing behavior by modeling best practices, creating organizational taxonomies, and positioning the information centre as the educator and connector.
