Management Guru Peter Drucker has famously said that knowledge and knowledge workers are the most important asset of 21st century. Knowledge management in its original form was all about structured content management for the knowledge workers. Advent of the social web brought people into focus and connections became important. With technologies galloping at a rapid pace, it is today an era of intelligence and newer forms of knowledge are emerging. This panel will dwell upon what this means for the organizations of tomorrow and how KM can continue to be relevant.

‣ 1400 – 1515 Hrs Session II: Revitalizing Knowledge through Gamification
In this era of smart technologies, sleek gadgets, AI and intelligent user interfaces that promise to help businesses streamline their processes, increase the number of happy clients and retain customers, what’s going to happen to the Human Element? Are Algorithms going to drive behaviours or will intrinsic human motivation continue to be the prime mover?
As the retention and engagement-crisis increases and the attention span constantly decreases, gamification is seen as a remedy to human motivational issues. Knowledge managers are increasingly looking to gamify their processes. Gamification is a set of activities and processes to solve problems by using or applying the characteristics of game elements to influence behaviors.
To deliberate on the future of Gamification we have a distinguished panel of speakers from diverse backgrounds and experience in their exposure to this fast-evolving discipline.
