Managing knowledge in project environments

Tired of struggling with lessons learned? Confused about knowledge management? Want to find out how organisations can really learn from projects? What’s the connection between knowledge management and swiss cheese?

Knowledge management practices are notoriously difficult to standardise. Every project, every programme and every organisation is different – and what works in one place can be a disaster in another.

APM Knowledge SIG is holding an event where they will hear two very different case studies: one from Brendan McAndrew of Mouchel and one from Michael Norton of the Local Government Association.

Jon Whitty, senior lecturer in project management at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia, will then present a new way of thinking about how to build organisational knowledge from projects. Through discussion based on the two case studies, you will learn how to apply Jon’s model in different environments. (This is the model on which this pmlessonslearned blog is based on. Jon is my PhD supervsior).

At the end of the afternoon you will have some practical examples of managing knowledge and be able to rethink the way your own organisation could adapt its own knowledge and learning practices to its environment. (I am looking foward to the outcome to hear the SLLCK model feedback from the APM Knowledge SIG event)

This event is aimed at project, programme and portfolio professionals looking to develop their understanding of knowledge management beyond traditional approaches.
