“Brand New Knowledge” – Thesis workshop 1 “Virtual Teams: Knowledge Sharing Across Locations and Organizations”

Welcome to this year’s first event for our collaboration partners in the industry: “Brand New Knowledge” – practitioner workshops based on our students’ thesis work

Every year, hundreds of thesis students at the IT University of Copenhagen spend six months exploring a thesis, becoming super experts on this topic. We want to share knowledge to the Danish society, and at the same time, profile our candidates to potential employers. 

This series of two-hour workshops will provide you with brand new knowledge on different topics, and hands-on training on how to use this knowledge in your own work.

On January 22nd, we’re proud to present: Virtual Teams: Knowledge Sharing Across Locations and Organizations with Corinna Nisi.

“Today, many projects are carried out across organizational boundaries and national borders. Individuals from diverse professional backgrounds, including different cultures and thinking, form efficient working groups, often under enormous time pressure. Knowledge sharing practices are very important as project members have less common knowledge (e.g., contextual, functional, organizational, and personal knowledge), especially in short-term projects.

Project managers and teams have a growing responsibility to build greater skills to comprehend relational complexities, handle possible ambiguity, and facilitate collaboration processes through virtual media. Often, these practitioners still struggle with the HOW.”

Virtual Teams: Knowledge Sharing Across Locations and Organizations aims at promoting knowledge and awareness of social and cultural dynamics on knowledge creation and sharing, and will help you to understand how knowledge is created within your project context. You will be participating in discussions and sharing your experiences from working in the industry.

Join us on January 22nd if:

  • You are responsible for coordinating teams of different locations, various professional backgrounds, including different cultures and thinking
  • You use communication technologies such as MS Teams / Skype but see a potential for enhancing your collaboration methods
  • You are ready to step back to reflect on your current approaches and are motivated to learn new perspectives
