Ana Neves (LinkedIn, Twitter) is the founder and managing director of Knowman, a consulting company providing strategic guidance and support to organisations and communities keen to improve results through a better use of knowledge. She narrows the gap between knowledge management, internal communication and collaboration, focusing on processes, culture and tools.
Together with her partners at OrangeTrail, she created the the Social Collaboration Maturity Scan: a free instrument for organisations to assess their maturity and get personalised recommendations to improve their use of enterprise social platforms.
The anonymised and aggregated results will be used to produce the Social Collaboration Maturity Benchmark 2021. This year Knowman and OrangeTrail are planning to create an additional benchmark report focusing on non-profits and humanitarian organisations.
Ana is the organiser of Social Now, a very unique conference which applies many KM principles and techniques to offer participants a rich learning experience focused on the use of enterprise social tools that improve knowledge sharing, retention, collaboration and internal communications.
Ana coordinates the CivicTech work group at APDSI (Portuguese Association for the Promotion and Development of the Information Society).
In 2001 she created KMOL, a website dedicated to knowledge management and organisational learning in Portuguese language. In 2020 she started podcast KMOL, also about knowledge management and also in Portuguese.
