Today I was privileged to facilitate a two and a half hour workshop for a group of MBA students from Al Ain University. The “KM in Action” workshop included students from two classes, a management information system class and a decision support system class. I love working with combined classes as the students tend to tease out excellent examples from the different classes.
We had a great dialogue about what works and what does not in terms of knowledge management. As is often the case, I learned as much from the students as they did from me. This particular group included many experienced leaders who were very interested in real-world examples.
We dedicated some time to complete the Marshmallow Challenge. I have used this exercise in many classes and workshops and I am always amazed at how many great learning opportunities emerge. Once again the Challenge proved to be time well spent.
