DUBAI: Countries must build relationships that encourage exponential learning in order to realise the full potential of their intellectual capital, stated experts at the “Future of the Knowledge Model” session on day one of the fifth Knowledge Summit, organised by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) on December 5-6, 2018, at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

The session had a panel comprising Professor Leif Edvinsson, Professor of Knowledge Capital at Lund University, Sweden; Professor Laurent Probst, PwC’s Accelerator Network Global Leader, and Professor Jan Sturesson, Founder of RESTING, with moderation by Youmna Naufal.

According to Edvinsson, the most important model for the future of knowledge is yet to be discovered, while Sturesson, for his part, stated that building relationships between industries, sectors, and human beings is key to setting the foundations for a solid knowledge economy.

Countries that are lagging behind in terms of intellectual capital should take direction from the top five performing countries in the Global Knowledge Index, using benchmarking and “bench learning” for knowledge development, the experts added.

The panel discussed how investing in upskilling people, particularly teachers, managers, and leaders, will enable the knowledge economy to thrive. Investing in teaching pedagogies to teach and learn effectively, said Probst, is essential.
