The School of Public Policy’s International Center for Applied Studies in Information Technology (ICASIT) hosts the quarterly meeting of the Knowledge Management Roundtable at the Arlington Campus on August 16.

Stephen Ruth, director of ICASIT, and Virgil Frizzell, senior consultant for knowledge management at ICASIT, initiated the Knowledge Management Roundtable three years ago in conjunction with industry leaders and Virginia’s Center for Innovative Technology (CIT) to broaden the application and advance the effectiveness of knowledge management practice in regional organizations. The Knowledge Management Roundtable has grown to encompass more than 250 participants representing 115 organizations, and has become a leading regional advocate for knowledge management processes in both private and governmental organizations in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. CIT recently confirmed its support of knowledge management processes by continuing partial funding for Knowledge Management Roundtable activities.

Next week’s roundtable features a panel of leading knowledge management practitioners addressing the topic “The State of Knowledge Management with a Look into the Future of KM”. The panel includes Mark Addleson, associate professor, School of Public Policy, George Mason University; Carol Bothwell, chief knowledge officer and vice president, Computer Sciences Corp.; James Jacobs, research director, Gartner; Get W. Moy, chief engineer and director of engineering and base development, Naval Facilities Engineering Command; and Elsa Rhoads, knowledge management architect, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp.

The event is held from 9 a.m. to noon in the Original Building, Room 244, on the Arlington Campus. Interested faculty and staff members are welcome, and should contact Frizzell at if they plan to attend. For more information, see the web site. Reports on the previous nine Knowledge Management Roundtable meetings are also available online.
