AGBC Monthly MeetingThe Munich Chapter of the American German Business Club (AGBC) is hosting our next monthly meeting on Wednesday, 25th September at the Marriott Hotel, Berlinerstr 93 in north Schwabing.Again this month I would like to invite you as fellow members of the Munich Chapter of GABA to this meeting. Our Guest Speaker will be Dr. Ulrike Reisach, Professor at the Neu-Ulm University of Applied Sciences, Bavaria/Germany. Ulrike will enlighten us on the American-German differences in the treatment and communication of knowledge.
The types of knowledge that are considered to be relevant for an organization can be quite diverse in different business cultures – even if they seem as close as the German and American one. They depend on convictions about what makes a good employee, expert, manager and leader. Additionally, they depend on motivational and interactional processes between the persons involved and their respective professional and cultural backgrounds, acquired through socialization and long-term practice. Knowledge Management and Transfer therefore have to be designed in a culturally sensitive way to make sure that knowledge which is crucial for a company is effectively preserved. Based on her management experience, Ulrike will show how you can make sure that expert knowledge is successfully identified and passed on.
Ulrike is an expert on communication and management strategies for leading international companies. For 20 years, she has been responsible for corporate communications and international strategy development in banking and industry, last as Director of Siemens Corporate Communication and Government Affairs. She has published 10 books on international management and communication as well as corporate culture and HR management.If you are interested in joining us for any of our AGBC meetings, please be sure to register in the Events tool at www.agbc.de.
