Managing knowledge in project environments
Knowledge management: what is it? How is it done? What’s the difference between knowledge and information? What do knowledge managers mean when they talk about ‘context’? Why do any of these things matter?
Knowledge management has been around as an organisational practice since the 1990s, but is widely misunderstood and poorly implemented in project environments. Publication of the first ever BS ISO 30401 on knowledge management systems requirements, as a draft for comment, is an opportunity for project professionals to change this.
Join this event to find out what Knowledge management really is – according to the international experts who drafted the BS ISO 30401 standard. It might not be what you think it is.
Judy Payne (Knowledge SIG) will take you through some knowledge management basics and explain why recipe-driven approaches to knowledge management don’t work.
You will find out that you know more about knowledge management than you think you do – and that you are already ‘doing’ knowledge management, even if you don’t think you are!
You will leave with a better understanding of what knowledge management is (and isn’t), including a set of guiding knowledge management principles and a list of factors you can use to plan and improve the way you approach knowledge management in your projects and programmes.
Bring your questions and knowledge management challenges along to fuel discussion.
This event is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.
Future events and branch information can be found on the branch community page.
