These proceedings represent the work of contributors to the 15th International Conference on Intellectual Capital, Knowledge Management & Organisational Learning (ICICKM 2018), hosted by The University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa on 29-30 November 2018. The Conference Chair is Prof. Shaun Pather and the Programme Co-Chairs are Dr. James Njenga and Dr. Carolien van den Berg, all from the University of the Western Cape.
Conceptual frameworks, theories and models of intellectual capital management and knowledge management have been evolving for over two decades. Both academic researchers and practitioners have posited that their successful application benefits organizations by improving their operations, personnel management and strategy development. As such, ICICKM has become a well-established event on the academic research conference calendar. The conference is now in its 15th year and the key aim remains the opportunity for participants to share their research and associated ideas with a view of advancing the body of knowledge in the fields associated with ICICKM. The scope of papers will ensure an interesting two days of vigorous intellectual debate. The subjects covered illustrate the wide range of topics that fall into this important and ever-growing area of research. This year, given the advances in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, there are several papers that introspect the nexus of intellectual capital and that of knowledge management.
The opening keynote presentation is given by Dr. Klaus North, from the Wiesbaden Business School, Germany on the topic of Knowledge Management in Digital Change. Then an afternoon keynote will be given by Dr Dan Remenyi, Extraordinary Professor at University of the Western Cape, on the subject When Machines get Smart. The second day of the conference will open with an address by Donovan Muller, Senior Executive: Western Cape, Zimele Technologies, South Africa who will talk about Information and Knowledge Management in the digital era: the key to evidence-based strategy and policy formulation in Local Government.
