A Gurteen Knowledge Workshop with David Gurteen




Personal Development
A one-day workshop presented by Gurteen Knowledge and Bizmedia

27th September, Novotel London West, Hammersmith, London, UK

Gurteen Knowledge Conference, Managing Organizational Complexity, London, March 3rd 2004
Disruptive technologies and worldwide competition - especially from India and China - are driving a global business transformation. The very nature of work for many people in hi-tech and knowledge-based organizations has already fundamentally changed.

Over the next 10 years this change will accelerate and extend to affect all of our working lives. From the CEO downward, we each need to develop our own understanding of this global revolution and integrate it into our thinking and every day behavior.

We will not survive, if we are not both technically and business literate. Intranets and extranets connect us within our own organizations and with our external partners and suppliers whilst the Internet connects us to our external customers, clients and a host of other people and organizations with whom we are loosely affiliated.

In this new world, the fundamental unit of the economy is increasingly no longer the corporation but the individual. For individuals and organizations to prosper - we, as individually electronically interconnected knowledge workers, need to learn how to better work together and how to harness our collective knowledge in order to compete.

Who is the workshop designed for?
This workshop is designed for knowledge workers.

"Knowledge workers are those people who have taken responsibility for their work lives. They continually strive to better understand the changing world around them and modify their work practices and behaviors to better meet their personal and organizational objectives. No one tells them what to do. They do not take “No” for an answer. They are self motivated."

This workshop is for people who strive to become such knowledge workers.
  • People who wish to take responsibility for their work lives and wish to make a difference.
  • People who wish to see the world differently, think differently and act and behave differently in order to make that difference.
  • People who are serious about transforming the way that they work; their ability to create and to innovate and improve the way that they manage and interact with other people in their organization.
What makes this workshop different is the recognition of the pivotal role of the individual in the knowledge economy and its focus on helping and supporting individuals to recognize and develop the knowledge-working competencies that they need to work effectively and creatively in their organizations.

What you will learn in this workshop and the benefits
In this workshop you will learn some of the more important concepts and skills needed to become an effective knowledge worker. You will learn how to become a more effective kowledge-networker; how to better collaborate and share knowledge with your co-workers; how to build learning into your everyday work with such tools as after action reviews and how to be a better communicator through practicing dialogue and telling stories. Finally, you will learn the importance and application of new social network tools such as weblogs and RSS feeds and how to use them effectively.

Who should attend this workshop
This workshop is designed for knowledge workers. You could be an individual contribtor, project manger or manager.

It is pitched at an introductory level and is probably not appropriate for senior managers or anyone who already has a good knowledge of 'personal knowledge management' concepts and skills.
