All Star II 1999

Saturday, July 10 to Saturday, July 17, 1999Chairs: Chris and Mike Ellis

Speaker: Larry Prusak on "Knowledge Management." Larry drew upon his experience as a corporate consultant to describe how organizations in our culture use -- and fail to use -- knowledge.

Minister of the Week: Rebecca Cohen


"Knowledge Management" expert and author Laurence Prusak presented a week's program exploring "Knowledge and Social Capital." Together, we looked at the difference between knowledge and data, and examined the intangible assets of trust, values, and shared experience that characterize healthy communities and organizations.

Larry is a dynamic and engaging speaker who travels the globe addressing these themes. He is Executive Director of the Institute for Knowledge Management and a managing principal with IBM Global Service Consulting Group in Boston. He has guest lectured at Harvard, the University of California, and N.Y.U., and is a visiting faculty member of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at Simmons College. He is the author of Working Knowledge and other books and articles on knowledge management. His forthcoming book on social capital will be published by the Harvard Business School Press in 1999.

"Knowledge is local, contextual, and sticky." - Larry Prusak
