Knowledge management (KM) comes in many shapes and sizes, and no one KM solution fits all. The trick to establishing and growing a successful, sustainable KM program is to customize your program and your efforts. Easy to say, but often not so easy to do. In this webinar, panelists representing a wide range of experience and firm size will share insight and lessons learned along their individual KM paths. And, who knows -- you may find you're already practicing KM in some ways you hadn't even realized!
