Our new ATD Austin SIG held the 2nd month of each quarter on 4th Tuesdays!
Session leaders are local CPLPs who have a range of work responsibilities. Each CPLP SIG host will select a talent discussion topic relevant to their interests.
In this session we're discussing knowledge management, an essential element for drawing upon the expertise of people within an organization and sharing skills across an enterprise. We’ll look at knowledge management at a professional services firm with more than 40 offices worldwide and contrast this with knowledge management requirements in a small office providing elearning services.
Attendees should come prepared to discuss their strategies for managing knowledge – either on a personal level or on a business level.

Mary Elizabeth Word has worked in the multimedia/eLearning field since 1995, with companies as diverse as Cortex Communications, SCCI, and MicroAssist. This area has allowed her to merge her degrees in Fine Arts and Computer Science into a field which requires both the technical background of a programmer and the design eye of an artist. She has worked on projects ranging from technical training with detailed software simulations as a government contractor, to extended secondary school projects for major textbook publishers, to eLearning courses which run on a variety of platforms, including mobile.
Prior to entering the multimedia field, she gained technical and design expertise with IBM, Texaco, and James Avery Craftsman.
