In his keynote address, Mr. Adi Godrej said that knowledge management has become a key item on the corporate agenda and is increasingly seen as a key enabler that fosters the organization's ability to innovate stated. He added that the good news is that India has excellent companies with excellent practices to pull from. The bad news is that India doesn't have enough forums by which these practices spread.

Ganesh Natarajan, who has been leading the KM initiative for CII since 2011, said that the focus has moved from just technology to include business processes, organization culture and leadership, all of which contribute to the effective management of knowledge - in organizations and society.

He reported that to realize this intent, CII has established three different KM Platforms:

- KM India as an annual conference and summit brings together people from academia, the public sector and corporations to discuss and debate the most recent trends in Knowledge Management.

- City-specific social processes should be instilled so that rich social networks get created between practitioners of KM in key localities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.

- A KM India Portal has been created to support the above activities and online activities from a larger audience/

Ganesh Natarajan noted that the long-term intent of the KM India movement is to create an ecosystem within India via which it is able to build and harness India's intellectual capital. Knowledge when created, shared and applied creates rich economic value. To accelerate the production and consumption of knowledge, India must create catalysts which support it.

Other highlights of the Summit were Master Classes on:
