Building Better Programs Through Knowledge Management 3

In February 2018, K4Health hosted a webinar to introduce the new Knowledge Management Collection.

On Thursday February 8, 2018, K4Health co-hosted the webinar, “Building Better Programs Through Knowledge Management” with guest presenters from Pathfinder International and Ipas.

When health program staff and practitioners can manage and share knowledge effectively, they can deliver better results. Yet many projects and programs don’t have systems in place to share critical knowledge and translate lessons learned, which can result in missed opportunities, duplication, and wasted time and money.

The Knowledge for Health (K4Health) Project has developed the Knowledge Management Collection, a family of resources designed for global health professionals to help them understand, use, and train others on knowledge management approaches, tools, and techniques. The KM Collection includes practical guides, comprehensive training materials, and a step-by-step framework.

In this kick-off webinar, KM Collection authors Ruwaida Salem and Jarret Cassaniti introduce the purpose and highlighted features of each resource in the Collection. Guest speakers Sarah Burns (Knowledge Management Advisor, Pathfinder International) and Wycliffe Omanya (Senior Communications Specialist, Ipas) also offer practical case examples of how their global health projects and organizations are using KM approaches to strengthen their work.
