OUR KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
Fundamental building block of our strategy, knowledge and skills development occupies a central place in the firm. Thus, we have put in place an ambitious Knowledge Management program to support the development of the firm and its practices.
1. Knowledge & skills development
“Knowledge is the only thing that grows when shared.” – Socrates
Veritable pillar of the Harwell Management group, knowledge and skills development –through their sharing and pooling and the training of our collaborators— has benefited from a dedicated KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT program since 2013.
2. A program in 4 levels
The development of the intellectual capital of the firm’s offerings in our three main business lines –Corporate and Investment Banks; Banking, Insurance & Specialized Financial Services; and Investment Services—is ensured through our practices.
Each Practice has a KM program, led by Directors and Chiefs of Mission in liaison with Managers, and is composed of several levels:
Analyzing and understanding the business line, regulatory, functional and IS issues relating to the business line/functional area covered by the practice. This work is done in workshops.
• 2nd level: Current Issues
These meetings conducted as workshops are aimed at facilitating an exchange on current and future issues while offering a synthesis of the contents.
• 3rd level: Training
Each practice leads a training course for collaborators on the content of its offering.
• 4th level: Publications
Editing the Harwell Management Group newsletter
• Harwell Sharing Session
These are meetings led by a collaborator who, depending on the context, shares on an experience, proposes an initiation to a particular skill or area, or addresses a current affairs topic. This bimonthly sharing of knowledge and skills aims to inform and train participants. The sessions are open to all collaborators and take place at the firm’s headquarters at the end of the day.
Examples of topics covered in 2013:
- EMIR: opportunity or threat?
- Implementation of Bâle regulations: from Bâle II (credit risk) to Bâle III (liquidity)
- Management Control in the new banking system
