Knowledge management The holistic, cross-functional discipline and set of practices concerned with the way organisations create and use knowledge to improve outcomes.
Communities of practice A type of learning network used within and between organisations to maintain, develop and share knowledge.
Knowledge is a subject that touches every aspect of project, programme and portfolio management P3 and we welcome membership from across the P3 community. Do you:
- rely on the success of projects?
- directly influence the way things are done in projects?
- manage projects?
- have experiences to share?
- get frustrated by poor knowledge practices?
- want to know how to collaborate more effectively?
If so, you can benefit from joining the SIG and the SIG can benefit from your membership. Because there is no one-size-fits-all recipe for effective KM, our focus is on building a dynamic community of project and knowledge professionals to develop and share understanding of knowledge issues in project environments. SIG events are interactive and we build in plenty of time for networking and informal knowledge-sharing.
The SIG team members have backgrounds in both project management and knowledge management: as practitioners, researchers and managers. We have worked in utilities, construction, higher education, defence, banking and health; and in public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
The SIG covers topics including strategic knowledge and information management; practical knowledge management; collaboration; social networking and social media; and organisational and cross-organisational learning.
