For 23 out of KMWorld’s 25 years, IIKI associates have served as conference speakers, workshop and knowledge café leaders, mentors, showcased book authors, and track chairs.
This year’s conference, which will be held in Washington, DC, features two of our research associates, Drs. Art Murray and John Lewis. Art will be leading two ½-day workshops: “Building & Curating E-Bodies of Knowledge,” and “Building a Governance Model for Organizational Knowledge.” He’ll also be giving a presentation entitled: “Tools for Enhancing Legacy Knowledgebases” at KMWorld’s companion conference, Text Analytics Forum.
In addition to a morning keynote (the details of which are still being worked), John Lewis will be leading a 90-minute session entitled “Stories & Storytelling,” based on his Story Thinking methodology.

Second TechCast-Cognis Strategic Forum to be held July 28, 2021
The second edition of the TechCast-Cognis Strategic Forum: Planning for Transformative Change will be held online on July 28 at 2000 UTC (4:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time in the USA).
Last month’s inaugural forum set the stage for the entire series, the purpose of which is to present the case for, and help in planning for, the coming global transformation. IIKI co-founder Prof. Bill Halal began by showing how the present system is not sustainable, requiring a transformation in global consciousness, which is already in the early stages. Jess Garretson showed how strategic foresight needs to be managed from the bottom up and the outside in. Dr. Hazel Henderson’s closing keynote showed how a new economic paradigm known as “love economics” will form the basis for a better, more cooperative global consciousness.
The next forum, scheduled for July 28, is entitled: “Foresight Lessons From the Pandemic: Implications for Strategy Formulation and Response.” Three outstanding and well-known thought leaders will present three provocative, carefully-thought-out scenarios (a baseline with no surprises, a worst-case, and best-case). You’ll hear from: Jerome Glenn, CEO, The Millennium Project, Futurist and Management Consultant Theodore Jay Gordon, and world-renowned futurist Paul Saffo. They’ll also show how you and your organization can begin making preparations now for whatever threats or opportunities might present themselves in the not-too-distant future.
Registration is complimentary, although donations in any amount would be deeply appreciated.
