Knowledge Management Q&A with Allison Hosking

Allison Hosking is the Head of Knowledge Management at Al Tamimi & Co where she oversees a team responsible for all aspects of the firm’s knowledge management strategy across their 17 offices.

With the start of the new year we try a different format. We ask crowdsourced questions about Knowledge Management to a KM leader.

Just some of the items we cover in the episode:
  • Working through the question – what is knowledge management? A way of helping organizations leverage the knowledge that the institution has, in a planned & structured manner, to achieve business benefits.
  • Knowledge Management as way of working through the past, present and future
  • Difference between explicit and tacit knowledge
    • Using trust as a vehicle to allow easier sharing of tacit knowledge  
  • Building a culture of knowledge sharing in a time of extreme change change 
  • How KM should is relevant, just in time and emergent
  • Difference between setting up a KM function is a young market vs. improvements made to an existing function in an established market
  • What kinds are requests are lawyers/users going to KM with?
