Robert Burns

Director | Knowledge Management of Group Benefits Operations at MetLife

Robert Burns enjoys over 20 years of creating and building strategic Knowledge Management (KM) platforms that enable the business to achieve its goals. Additionally, Robert has leveraged past experience with education, technology consulting, business training, and on-the-job KM experience to approach KM holistically and integrate it into organizations at the process level and culturally. Having the opportunity of starting KM from the beginning in multiple organizations forced him to find several methods to influence & educate leadership and associates; plus ways to show KM’s value. He describes two key success factors: 1) Focus on evolving KM governance and processes to establish a solid, but agile foundation that is continually aligned with the business strategy and culture (without a solid KM foundation the KM solutions and technologies will not be as effective or sustainable); and 2) Build KM platforms that focus on providing content that is easily available at the time of need, specific to an associate’s role and task, and integrated into the target process and/or application. Robert believes that we must focus on better enabling associate proficiency toward the achievement of organizational goals.

For the future, he looks forward to exploring the evolving capabilities from Performance Support, data analytics/big data, and cognitive computing.

Additional background: 1) High school and college mathematics instructor, Unisys, Grant Thornton, Hitachi Consulting, and currently director of KM at MetLife for 14 years. 2) Has presented at several KM World annual conferences and at APQC KM Conferences. In 2015, MetLife was one of five companies chosen for the APQC Connecting People to Content Best Practices Study and Report (link).

I see it, one should be evaluating other plans prior to the enrollment period. Biggest problem is getting costs that one is looking for discussed without having to commit to a specific insurance plan. During the year, there’s less pressure to enroll individuals so questions will be answered more directly.LIFE INSURANCE
