CHIPS Articles: Knowledge management symposium highlights importance of information sharing in support of military objectives

Knowledge management symposium highlights importance of information sharing in support of military objectives
By DISA News - May 25, 2018
Today’s military operations require the warfighter to access accurate, authoritative information quickly and easily.

The DOD and Federal Knowledge Management (KM) Symposium, hosted by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), brought together hundreds of federal, academic, and private sector experts eager to discover and discuss information-sharing solutions for the modern warfighter.

Held at the Baltimore Convention Center May 15-17, the governmentwide KM event included keynote speeches by knowledge leaders from Amazon and the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA); speakers from nearly a dozen federal agencies; and panels of experts from DOD, academia, and industry who shared KM best practices.

“An effective leader allows people to manage their time doing information sharing, collaborating, and forming networks,” said Stewart MacLeod with the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence regarding the importance of KM. “You can’t force someone to share knowledge — you must encourage them, make them want to share their knowledge without ridicule or favor.”
