The KIN team engages business practitioners, researchers and associates in order to meet KIN Aims.
Participants from KIN member organisations include Chief Knowledge Officers, Knowledge Managers and others in senior and line management roles. All practitioners have a common interest or responsibility in applying more effective knowledge and innovation practices to improve organisational performance.
Through our direct links to Warwick Business School and the IKON Research Group (IKON) and our extended network, we employ world-class researchers to conduct research with KIN members and other organisations. IKON was formed in 1997 and has a strong track record of producing collaborative research projects with organisations in both the public and private sector.
In order to ensure KIN remains at the cutting edge of thinking and practice, KIN employs 'Associates' or subject matter experts for each of the Action Learning Groups. Current KIN associates include Richard McDermott (Communities of Practice), Rob Cross (Social Network Analysis), Nick Milton (Learning from Projects), Carlotta Vollhardt (Knowledge Retention and Transition), Ian Corbett and Jenny Ambrozek (New Social Media and Web2). KIN Associates are world leaders in their field.
KIN employs a dedicated team of specialists and facilitators to enable collaboration between individuals in each of the above groups at Action Learning Group level.
Working Knowledge Research Programme
KIN also enjoys a relationship with US based Babson College, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
In addition to above, KIN invites leading speakers from around the world to present at KIN workshops and events.
