Join Dr. Allen Partridge, Adobe eLearning Evangelist for a discussion and demonstration centered on knowledge sharing in your organization. Business communication today is growing increasingly dependent on clean, well-produced video content, and corporate culture has sent forth a clarion call to leverage internal knowledge in order to cut costs and protect the business process understanding resident in virtually every knowledge worker. This is sometimes a stark contrast to a prevailing knowledge hoarding culture. How can your organization facilitate both the cultural changes needed and the technological innovation required to move from knowledge protection to knowledge sharing within the group? Dr. Partridge will discuss the issues and demonstrate the technologies. You’ll learn how you can spearhead the knowledge revolution in your organization.
