Peer to Peer Knowledge Networks & Enterprise Agility


Global Head-Knowledge Strategy in ThoughtWorks. I have about 10 years of overall experience in knowledge management, consulting, application development, teaching and evangelism out of which I have spent close to 5 years in the social software/ Enterprise 2.0 space. My current challenge at work is bridging customer and employee communities and exploring the relationship between strong knowledge communities and scaling agile enterprise wide. Outside work, I’m intensely passionate about alternative education models and education technology - firmly believe schooling and education are two different things.


One of the often overlooked aspects of Enterprise agility is the importance of peer to peer knowledge networks. Diffusing good practices beyond the boundaries of a team are key to scale agile enterprise wide. Unfortunately these are non-trivial problems and organizations would need a combination of practices, principles and supporting socio-technical systems to make this happen. In this session, you will get an opportunity to understand the nuances of building such a support structure in addition to seeing a demo of myThoughtWorks - a platform which connects ThoughtWorkers around the world.
