Knowledge Café: How can I put the Knowledge Café to good use?
What is a Knowledge Café?
The Knowledge Café is a simple but flexible, conversational method that almost anyone can run. You do not need to be a professional facilitator.
The Café at its simplest brings a group of people together to have a conversation on a topic of mutual interest to understand better an issue but it can be adapted for a variety of purposes and at its best is a very powerful sense making tool.
The aims of the Café include the surfacing of the group's collective knowledge; learning from each other; sharing ideas and insights; gaining a deeper understanding of a topic and the issues involved and exploring possibilities.
It can also be used to help connect people, improve interpersonal relationships, break down organizational silos, and improve trust and engagement.
The Theme and Question of this Knowledge Café
In this virtual Knowledge Café, I will briefly explain the process and the principles underpinning the Café for those of you not familiar with the concept.
I will go on to share a number of ways in which I have applied the Café or seen it applied for a wide variety of business purposes.
We will then go into Café conversation mode where I will pose the question:
How do you think you could adapt and apply the Café (face-to-face or virtually) in your own organization or for your clients?
