APQC Podcasts APQC podcasts, bringing businesses the information they need to work smarter, faster, and with greater confidence.

APQC research has shown that one of the biggest mistakes that KM programs make is not identifying and systematically addressing the obstacles that block employees from contributing, accessing, and reusing knowledge. The research has found the first step in developing an effective KM change management strategy is recognizing those barriers. In 2013, APQC partnered with its KM advanced workshop to identify ten barriers to enterprise knowledge sharing. Over a series of KM podcasts, all ten of these barriers will be addressed. On this podcast, APQC executive director Cindy Hubert and KM research program manager Lauren Trees address the barrier of sponsorship.

Organizations have masses of knowledge associated with their business processes. Some of this comes in the form of documents—everything from standard operating procedures and training materials to tips and lessons learned from past project teams—but other knowledge exists only in the heads of employees who design, own, and execute the processes every day.

On June 29, 2016, APQC’s Lauren Trees and Holly Lyke-Ho-Gland conducted a webinar on how to tie knowledge to process and follow-on Q&A podcast on the role of knowledge in process management. This podcast addresses some of the questions posed during the webinar.
