    Knowledge Management Australia Congress is in its eleventh year and over this period we have seen KM go through many changes, answer many questions and confound many people. KM has changed as often as the social media landscape has changed, bringing many challenges but also opening many doors for collaboration and innovation.

    In today’s world, knowledge is the greatest asset for an organisation. It is also the most reliable investment. Knowledge translates into revenue and assures continual stability, progress and advancement. The question is, how do you manage it effectively and how do you break down barriers so it can be collaborated successfully?

    Knowledge Border Crossings focuses on knowledge sharing between different industries and across an organisation. The emphasis is to bring a varied mix of industries to share their journeys, and thereby collaborate across fields.
