Exercise: Understanding KM Practices

The Introduction to KM training module includes two main exercises to help participants think practically about how they use or can use KM in their global health programs. This first exercise is intended to be conducted after the initial presentation that provides an overview of what KM is, why we use KM in global health programs, and how to apply KM. The exercise helps participants to understand how they might be already be using KM in their daily work, or how KM could help strengthen their work if they applied it systematically. The exercise uses a KM technique--storytelling--to convey this information, so it also helps demonstrate to participants how KM tools and techniques can help improve their programs.
