TMS 2007: Lectures

Topic: "The Thinking to Knowledge Chain in Extractive Metallurgy"
Date: Tuesday, Feb. 27

ABOUT THE LECTURE

One of the major challenges facing any business today is matching improvement rates to the expectations of stakeholders.

Data is more readily available than ever before, but in the minerals industry the conversion of this data to transferred knowledge is disappointingly slow and dangerously staid.

Why don’t “best practices” travel better across the silos in industries or companies? What has happened to the concept of Knowledge Management of the ‘90s? How can we improve the thinking processes among our technologists and accelerate effective knowledge transfer in the next ten years with the emphasis being on effective? This lecture will address these questions.
