Many organizations struggle with innovation, but could it be that they’re just missing a few important steps? For many years, Canada has been shown to have difficulty translating investments in research and development, which produces world class knowledge, into globally competitive firms. So what are the missing pieces? How could organizations translate their knowledge into innovation? Why is it important? What role does knowledge management play in modern organizations and how does it relate to technology, collaboration, and driving value from innovation?

Join us for this 60 minute session, where Paul Preston will demystify knowledge management and innovation, drawing on recent research findings from our recent studies Driving Knowledge Management for Innovation and How Canada Performs: Report Card on Innovation. Paul will also share findings from the Conference Board's Knowledge Management 2016 Conference, where experts from across the country revealed the critical need to more effectively manage, and extend the value from, the knowledge we have in Canadian organizations.
