Workshops for enabling knowledge owners

Through the Hoffmann&Reif workshops knowledge owners are enabled to become providers of added value services on the Internet, such as online publishers, eLearning tutors, or online community managers .

The deployment of eServices require new workflows and a high degree of collaboration between professionals from different subject matter areas. An organisational and cultural shift is required for those knowledge workers who are planning to offer eServices in the networked economy:

  • coaching and moderating heterogenous expert groups
  • working in networked environments
  • developing human capital through continuous learning and creating synergies
  • generating new value through collaboration between knowledge owners
  • combining global insights with local expertise

During the Hoffmann&Reif workshops these issues are addressed so that all the potentials of ICTs can be unleashed.
