Building an International Knowledge Professional Society Pt2
In March KMLF hosted an Agile workshop to stimulate ideas around forming an international knowledge society. Participant insights were collected from the march session and added into a new tool for assessing complex contexts. Some initial assessment of this information has begun to organise this into the basis of a Vision, purpose and charter for the society. This part two session takes the next steps to cocreate a foundation of the international society and put this as a proposal out into the international arena for wider engagement on starting the community. The plan is to publish the results in RealKM Magazine, which has a wide readership among knowledge professionals and then share the link into other KM forums to trigger the formation of the society. Markus Feitz (creator of CernQuest, the tool we are using for this development project) will facilitate the overall conversation and we will instruct 5 table leaders in the use of CernQuest before the session on how to manage the system. This is an exciting development in the formation of what we believe will become a significant stage of knowledge management as a recognised discipline.

What we're about

KMLF – Melbourne Knowledge Management Leadership Forum

The KMLF 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.

Get to this MeetUp site quickly at http://melbournekmlf.org/ !

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
