Designing Collaboration
Alister Webb is joining us again from Australia, this time he's sharing his newly published book with us, "Designing Collaboration" and bringing his co-author, Andrew Pope with him. Many organisations assume that provisioning great collaboration tools will bring about great collaboration, all perfectly aligned with business objectives and automatically supercharging processes and projects. Newsflash - it doesn't. Like any business initiative, collaboration requires good design and an implementation strategy. Not around the tools, but around people and good collaborative behaviours, enabled (but not led) by the tools. Alister Webb, an Australian collaboration practitioner who has joined us previously in Berlin for great collaboration and knowledge management discussions, has just published a book titled ‘Designing Collaboration: An Essential Handbook for Today's Digital Workplace’. It directly addresses this common challenge, focusing on real-life tactics and strategies to build good collaborative behaviours for the modern digital workplace. Alister and his co-author and business partner at Innosis, Andrew Pope, will be in Berlin to launch 'Designing Collaboration' in Europe. They will discuss the book and what led them to write it. They invite everyone to join the discussion, talking about the seven elements of a sustainable collaboration design and the strong link to innovation.

    What we're about

    Come and meet other locals from all knowledge-intensive industries to discuss the goals, issues and opportunities facing knowledge management professionals. Share your experiences of issues and network across industry boundaries.

    If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the people, processes, and technology aspects, not one but all three you should come out and meet other like-minded people.

    We will meet every few months (4 times per year) to discuss knowledge management issues and experiences. We welcome everyone whether you are new to KM or have been around the block once or twice.

    This group will take place in English. It complements the German track of local meetings of the Gesellschaft für Wissensmanagement e. V. ( (GfWM), the "Society for Knowledge Management" registered in Germany.

    Stephanie co-founded the Knowledge Workers Toronto Meetup group, which has been running for over 6 years and has 900+ members. She has recently moved to Berlin and is member and regional representative of the GfWM.

    Ute is vice president and member of the board of GfWM, as well as, regional representative of the society in Germany's capital region.

    NOTE: It should be noted that while this Meetup group collaborates and coordinates with the GfWM, it is a separate entity. The group is open to the public, and does not require GfWM membership to attend our events. No special benefits are conferred on GfWM members. If you behave badly (spam, bullying, or other unprofessional behaviour), you will be removed and banned from the group regardless of your GfWM membership status.
