What we're about

The Melbourne Knowledge Management Leadership Forum (KMLF) is a knowledge, education and networking forum, run by Volunteer KM practitioners for KM practitioners.

Meetings are usually held on the 4th Wednesday of each month in the central business district in Melbourne, Australia. During COVID restrictions, Zoom video events are being hosted online. 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,

KMLF - Radical KM - Stephanie Barnes

Location visible to members

Agenda:

Description:
Radical Knowledge Management advocates that creativity, specifically arts-based interventions, is the missing piece of the KM puzzle. Most people treat KM like it is a wired computer network: they can see all the bits and pieces (documents and repositories are the servers, cables, and desktop computers) but the real value in going wireless–tablets, phones, and laptops and that is Radical KM; creativity is like wifi. Creativity, like going wireless, allows people the flexibility of looking at the world from someplace different, it enables innovation, and activates sustainable leadership behaviours.

Outcomes:
Participating in this event will enable you to:
