The Foundations To Thrive In A Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous World.
Most organisations need to rapidly transform if they want to survive and thrive into the future. Our belief is that the typical current ‘Executive Leadership Mindset' is one of the single biggest issue facing many organisations today! A mindset goes to the very nucleus of every individual person. What are your core beliefs? What do you believe is true? What do you believe is MOST important? Beliefs dictate our actions & behaviours, and if our senior leaders don’t have suitable ones then in the famous words from Apollo 13, ‘Houston we’ve got a problem’!!! Many senior executives have beliefs which may have helped them to get where they are now, but will not help them to get where they need to go in the future. The world we live in is changing at an unprecedented rate. This new world needs a new approach and a certain 'shared' mindset. If executive leaders want to help their organisations survive, grow and prosper, many of them need to unlearn much of what they have learned in the past; not doing this could have very serious implications for their organisations and the people they lead. For many organisations the clock is ticking and significant disruption may not be far away. In this session we will provide participants with an clear understanding of the importance & significance of this issue, along with some simple & practical tools to help start tackling it! This session is facilitated by Stephen Dowling. Stephen is the founder of ETM and has over 25 years of international business experience. An Irishman who moved to Melbourne 13 years ago. Stephen is a passionate educator, simplifier and somebody who just loves to help people & organisations connect the dots! As a Project Leader Stephen has successfully delivered many different types of projects, and he currently teaches global credential courses in Agile Project Management (DSDM), PMBOK (PMP) and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). This gives him a unique perspective of being able to understand & bridge both the ‘Traditional’ & the ‘Agile’ delivery worlds!

What we're about

The Melbourne Knowledge Management Leadership Forum is a face-to-face education and networking forum, run by KM practitioners for KM practitioners.

Meetings are usually held at least once per month in the central business district in Melbourne, Australia. Membership is free, and attendance at meetings usually requires a small donation to cover drinks and nibbles.

At KMLF meetings, members can participate in addressing and discussing issues regarding knowledge management and related topics. The aim of this participation is to set the foundation for a casual network of interested practitioners and scholars to discuss knowledge management and its impact on both business and government organisations.

The regular attendance at forum meetings is between 20-40 people. These represent executives and knowledge management practitioners from government and a range of corporations and SMEs. Academia, consultancies and vendors are also represented. Industries represented include legal, defence, manufacturing, C&IT and banking & finance. Our committee includes senior consultants, managers and executives from government and commercial enterprises and KM practitioners.

Meetings usually start at around 6 pm. The formal session usually wraps up by 7:30 pm, with networking and refreshments afterwards. After that, anyone interested can then adjourn for further discussions over dinner at a restaurant nearby.

Best regards,

The Organising Committee
