Collaborative Knowledge Networks
********************************    (011)

Open, secure trans-enterprise collaboration maximizes the sharing,
conversion, creation and fluid (re)use of the tacit, explicit and procedural
knowledge required to improve performance and competitiveness.    (012)

Lasting, measurable benefits of collaborative knowledge networks include:    (013)

- Shorter product development cycles, improved design, faster innovation
- More productive sales processes, faster closes, improved quote-to-cash
- Accelerated time-to-performance for critical knowledge-based offerings
- Expanded eBusiness archetypes and sharply improved value chain teamwork    (014)

Deployments of new collaborative models, technology and organizations are
often challenged. Almost always, the short-term gains are exaggerated and
the long-term benefits are underestimated.    (015)

The Spring 2002 KM Cluster will take a hard look at what works today and
what is on the near horizon for collaborative knowledge networks.    (016)

Implementation of effective organizational foundations and synergistic
technologies will also be examined.    (017)

The goal is to attain a far deeper comprehension of the managerial and
economic logic of collaborative knowledge networks.    (018)
