I have come to learn over the last 15 years that the Knowledge Café is more a state of mind than it is a fixed process. It is a way of viewing the world through a conversational lens. It is about looking at any organizational process or activity and asking:
How can I apply the Knowledge Café philosophy and principles to make this task more effective by making it more conversational and engaging?
You can adapt the Knowledge Café for a variety of purposes.

I particularly like this application by Shawren Singh at the University of South Africa that describes how the Knowledge Café can be adapted to refine a theoretical conjecture..

It has also been used in Academia as an innovative teaching strategy.

How do you think you might adapt it?

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
