In the 10 years since the initial launch of the IKNS program at Columbia University, we have seen a remarkable expansion of the knowledge-driven economy and a continual evolution in how organizations capitalize on knowledge and networks.

Join Columbia University’s MS in Information and Knowledge Strategy (IKNS) program on September 28th at 6pm ET for an intimate discussion between long-time colleagues Laurence Prusak, PhD and Nancy Dixon, PhD.  Both Laurence and Nancy are renowned thought-leaders in the knowledge management discipline and esteemed faculty members of the IKNS program.

  1. What have been the major changes in knowledge management over the last 10 years
