Facilitating Knowledge Processes

We do research and consult on new methods of learning and knowledge sharing between people face-to-face at conferences and in meetings, networks and organizations generally.

One important tool is facilitation, the art of helping a group of people accomplish what they want by guiding their process gently, but firmly.

Our four areas of interest:

  • Conferences
  • Meeting facilitation
  • Knowledge sharing in networks
  • Meaning in work life
    Read a short statement about them here.

Research and development projects:

  • Meetings that create value and meaning: A new project where 50 managers from each partner organization will be trained in meeting facilitation. The effect on meetings will be measured.
  • New conference formats: Ongoing Ph.D. project in collaboration with a handful of conference organizers.
  • The learning meeting: We developed and applied some 20 techniques for involving participants at 30 conferences held at four venues by a handful of partner companies
  • More effective meetings: A project with five knowledge-intensive corporations - Nokia, Novozymes, Elsam/Nesa, BRFkredit and Jyske Bank.
