Dr. Anthony J. Rhem discusses current KM issues from his latest book, Knowledge Management in Practice (CRC Press, 362 pages) which examines practical KM applications across multiple industries. Since 1998, Tony has assisted organizations adopt KM strategies and practices—eighteen years’ experience implementing processes appropriate for each and every company within the various industries. KM Chicago will leverage this knowledge in a new series of expert led discussions which focus on one industry at a time. Tony will kick off the series by discussing relevant KM practices that are unique to certain industries. Tony will also highlight KM tools that are found in common among other industries, and explain how the underlying theory remains intact from one profession to another. He will storybook how successful practitioners and consultants have found ways to translate theory into practice for each particular industry.

For each Industry Focus, Roundtable event we will have KM specialists in a specific industry provide their insights on how they resolve industry specific problems by applying KM best practices and solutions. Dr. Rhem will serve as moderator.
