KM Chicago’s April meeting will be the first of a two part series on designing physical and virtual space to enhance collaboration and knowledge transfer. On April 10, Anne Gibson and Mandy Graham from Gensler will explore how the physical work environment can influence how individuals and teams work together. In May, we’ll focus on virtual collaboration.  Meeting details are at left. All are welcome to attend!
