Biography Dave Snowden
Dave Snowden is Director of the Institute of Knowledge Management for Europe Middle East and Africa. One of the founders of 'Organic Knowledge Management', he is an acknowledged expert on the management of tacit knowledge and has developed a series of pioneering methods including the use of anthropological techniques for knowledge disclosure through the ASHEN model, the use of stories as an advanced form of knowledge repository (based on six years of research into story telling cultures around the world) and the Cynefin "Just in Time" model of knowledge transfer between formal and informal communities. He regularly consults at board level on Knowledge Strategy with some of the Worlds largest companies as well as to Government and NGOs.
Dave is currently leading two Institute programmes: One is the further development of Story Techniques into advanced decision support, merger and aquisition and multi-cultural communication; the other uses Complexity Theory to link concepts from Learning and Knowledge Management. He has authored many articles on the subject and contributed commissioned chapters to two forthcoming books. He is currently working on two books and editing two others. His own books to be published in 2000-2001 are on the use and abuse of Story and Complex Knowledge . Dave Snowden has an MBA from Middlesex University and a BA in Philosophy from Lancaster University.
