Abstract: I work with KOC, the 4th largest exporter of Crude Oil, in its Head office, Ahmadi, Kuwait. Having spent 2 years working in the PM’s advisory in Kuwait, as an advisor, this is the 2nd stint that I have with KOC in the knowledge Management function. Prior to coming to Kuwait, I worked with Mind Tree Consulting, mainly evangelizing Knowledge Communities, as a Senior Manager – KM. I spent over 6 years in IBM global Services India in their learning and education function as a Knowledge Officer in Bangalore, the silicon valley of India.
For the last 17 years, I’ve worked across industries such as Oil & Gas, Software Services and Governments and had been challenged every step of the way. Now, as a specialist, I am responsible for introducing and sustaining various knowledge Management practices into the organization. I’m currently working on introducing Peer Review Process within the Organization and across upstream KPC subsidiaries. I’m also working on sustaining & improving Best Practices replication Process and Project integrated Lessons Learnt knowledge sharing and application framework.
Considering the above context in mind, here’s a simple narrative on how a typical day would turn out:
