Beyond lessons learned: proposed new SIG on knowledge sharing and collaboration
You might have heard that APM is evaluating a proposal for a new ‘knowledge’ SIG. There’s a team of us beavering away on working up the proposal and before we go much further, we’d like your input. The new SIG will cover the theory and practice of what some of us call knowledge management – but as this means different things to different people, here’s an initial idea of the scope:
- Practical knowledge management: creating, finding, sharing, organising and exploiting knowledge - through tools and techniques involving people, processes and technology.
- Strategic knowledge and information management: why these are important and how they differ.
- Collaboration: people working together across and within project teams to achieve something they could not accomplish alone.
- Social networking and social media as means of sharing knowledge by helping people to connect with each other.
- Organisational and cross-organisational learning.
- All of the above within and between projects, organisations and individuals.
