“The future of knowledge management: how will project management respond?”

I am looking forward to running a session at the forthcoming Association for Project Management (APM) – Knowledge Special Interest Group (SIG) event in London on 6th July 2017.

Full venue address: Grange Fitzrovia hotel, 20-28 Bolsover Street, London. W1W 5NB

The world of work, the nature of organisations and people’s expectations are all changing, and Knowledge Management is changing too. What does this mean for Project Management?

If you’re a project or knowledge management professional, join us to find out more about current and emerging knowledge management ideas and how you can improve the way you work.

Having had a chance to understand these ideas and possibilities, we will discuss what they mean to us and how PM could usefully adapt as a result.

Speakers line up (subject to change) and additional speakers’ information

  • Ron Young CEO, Knowledge Associates, will give us an introduction to his ‘Five Dimensions of Knowledge & Innovation’ and follow this with an interactive group discussion and activity.
    Here delegates will have an opportunity to review and discuss their own knowledge and innovation issues in the context of these dimensions and should gain new valuable insights into how to understand and make progress with them.
  • Ron Donaldson, freelance Knowledge Ecologist, will run an interactive session using narrative inquiry, storytelling and sense-making techniques, where all attendees will participate.
  • Judy Payne, Knowledge Management & Learning specialist, will explore the past present and mostly future of Knowledge Management.
  • Rob Leslie-Carter of ARUP will present on the findings of their new ‘open source’ publication about the future of Knowledge & learning in project management, created in partnership with the APM.

Benefits of attending
As ever, we will be encouraging and expecting engagement and participation from you as attendees and very much value your contributions. There will be the opportunity to meet a host of industry practitioners and thought-leaders; and exchange your experiences with other knowledge managers, project managers and network with like-minded people.

Booking information can be found here.


Ecology of Knowledge Menu V1 front

I have finally managed to create a menu of services that I am happy with. Click on either image to enlarge. The PDF version can be downloaded here, a version complete with prices is available on request..

Ecology of Knowledge Menu V1 no pricesand yes, before you ask, I do have 25 years experience of providing discos and music quizzes so why not end (or punctuate) your event with a participatory musical high.

I have finally been brave enough to post this. This is the audio recording of my appearance at the Story Collider show in London in front of a packed house in a London Club earlier this year. 20 minutes long, you can hear the fear in my voice as I start, and listen out for a gap in the middle where I forget where I am up to.
