It was awarded at the Lawyer Management Awards 2013 four weeks ago, and was awarded to A&L Goodbody for what the judges called: “A really attractive client-facing integrated service with step-through inclusive project management sponsored at the highest level.”
I believe, translated out of business speak, that means an extranet portal that provides A&L Goodbody's clients with access to practice notes, FAQs,checklists and e-learning talks.
This is less of a Knowledge Management strategy to enhance the effectiveness of the firm, and more of a strategy of information provision to clients, but I do have to say, I am delighted to see a "Best Knowledge Management" award at a prestigious event like this, and many congratulations to the A&L Goodbody team for their award (and congratulations also to the teams from Taylor Wessing in second place, and Hogan Lovells and Wragge & Co in joint third).
KM has arrived in the world of Tuxedos, LBDs, celebrity hosts, champagne and awards.
And people say Knowledge Management is dead!
