KMDC Visit Huawei Headquarter in Shenzhen
A Drizzling day that turned so Dazzling!
Saturday, 8th December 2012, it was a cold morning with light drizzle. KMDC has organized a field trip for our members to Huawei Headquarter in Shenzhen, China. On hindsight, we were not prepared for such an eye-opening event.
In the center of Huawei Campus, we were greeted by Mr. Frankie Lai 賴磊宇, who is leading Huawei global KM initiative. Over warm coffee and light breakfast, we listened to Mr. Lai’s presentation about the development of KM in Huawei, how the KM definition has been evolving within Huawei, from process oriented KM to people oriented KM. We were shown how KM played an important role in the fast-growing Chinese enterprise, now a world leader in telecommunication in a mere 25 years.
Apart from the warm hospitality received, KMDC members were treated, in first-hand the setting, with demonstrations of a state-of-the-art enterprise level telecommunication devices and facilities, including a reality video conference demonstration. There was strong enthusiasm and pride shown by our host.
The visit concluded with a delicious lunch joined by Mr Jack Zhang, President of an integrated Product Line Development, on a nice patio under the warm autumn sun…..
We were all dazzled.
Merry Christmas everyone!

KMDC is organizing an interesting round table event titled Knowledge Management: 'How do we find ...?' on Thursday, March 25, 2010.

We are pleased to have Bill Proudfit as our round table leader on a topic of 'How do we find knowledge?'
