The future of KM at the Macro and Micro Level
Prof Anthony Wensley, University of Toronto Mississauga
The field of Knowledge Management has built an impressive range of research and practice over the last two decades. It seems appropriate to review some of the substantial progress that has been made and also explore some fruitful directions for future research and practice. In particular there is a need to examine both the micro-foundations of different aspects of Knowledge Management and potential (new) links to cognate disciplines.

This keynote speech will address some of the underlying contingencies and complexities of the knowledge-performance relationship, and outline related future research directions.
