KM Australia 2015


In practice organisational learning from projects rarely happens, and when it does it often fails to deliver the intended results. Learn how to use the Syllk model (a variation of Reason’s Swiss cheese) to wire an organisation for the capability of learning through projects.

Audience Participation: Identify facilitators & barriers to Knowledge Management (Lessons Learned) and associated KM practices with a follow up discussion at the World Cafe.

• Organisations are failing to learn from their past experiences
• The Swiss cheese model is successful at promoting safety and accident prevention
• We adapt the Syllk model for organisations to learn from past experiences

What The Delegates Will Take Away from the Session:
• Gain an understanding of the facilitators and barriers to knowledge management lessons
• Enable management to conceptualise how learning know-how is distributed across a
network of interconnected organisational faculties and systems.

Thanks for the feedback.

• Took a bit of ideas away from this
• Stephen presented engaging material and was very amiable.
• Swiss cheese model was good – would also be good for a workshop
• Good luck with your PhD. It’s nice to see someone cracking open the lessons learned myth.
• Hadn’t heard of Syllk model – so great to learn of it
• Loved the content. Well thought through and made me want to research more about Syllk
• No doubt that Stephen is really intelligent – would have been good to see the theoretical link to practical
• Need to read more about his concept – very interesting
• Will follow up with presentation provided – interested in content, presentation slides were a bit small to read due to small fonts
• It was difficult to hear him at times but was very interesting
• Great passion for topic – would have liked more practical examples
• Great references and clearly a huge amount of subject matter expertise. I would be interested in more information of the KM practices
• Great information!
• Learned a lot about a different evoking LL framework
