You must have Flash installed to view this content.
Simone Staiger-Rivas of the CGIAR argues that introducing knowledge sharing into a research organization requires attention to three entry points: The first is 'strategic' - making decision points more horizontal and participatory. The second is to work on concrete tools and approaches that staff can work with. The third concerns capacity building and staff empowerment. There is certainly no single 'magic bullet'. For knowledge sharing to really happen, an organization needs to "change profoundly." Interview by Peter Ballantyne, May 2009
