Like London buses, my Knowledge Cafes sometimes come along in twos or threes.
First, I'd like to remind you of the Knowledge Cafe coming up on 2 July at Westminster Business School on How Does The Pace Of Innovation Affect The Quality Of Creativity?
And second, I would like to tell you about another Knowledge Cafe a week later on 9 July at the Cass Business School in the Barbican. Like many of my Cafes, this one is different. It is more of a Knowledge Walk than a Knowledge Cafe and will be run by Prof. Clive Holtham whom many of you will know. This is what Clive says about it:
Cass Business School has been working for more than a decade on developing an innovative method in knowledge management, which is built on walking through urban areas.So once again it should be a fun learning experience. You will find more details and the registration form here.
This approach is called the dérive (drifting) based on a method devised by the French writer Guy Debord.
The method has been used by Professor Clive Holtham with several thousand Cass Business School students and executive learners, and is now also being used in other areas of high level professional development, including teacher training and nursing, both in the UK and internationally.
This is the first time that the event has been offered publicly at Cass.
There will be refreshments and short briefing about the task on arrival, followed by the walk in small teams, returning to Cass to present the team's finding.
This is not a guided tour, a tourist walk, or a treasure hunt.
It is a specifically designed method of management learning. It is an evolution of "Management by Walking About" as developed at Hewlett-Packard, involving "noticing", conversation and storytelling.
The event will take place regardless of weather conditions, so please come with appropriate protection in case of rain etc.
I look forward to seeing you ... rain or shine :-)
Best wishes David
