Creating a Knowledge Sharing Culture: How to Thrive on Change with Patricia Currie

This program introduces the requirements for success and the tools for facilitating collaboration. It focuses on how the information center can take a leadership role to encourage knowledge sharing behavior by modeling best practices, creating organizational taxonomies, and positioning the information center as the educator and connector.

Prior to joining Dialog she worked in corporate libraries in such industries as energy (Columbia Gas System), manufacturing (ABB) and consulting (PriceWaterhouse).
