KMLF - Embedding Knowledge in Business Systems
When business people talk about knowledge we hope they are talking about the expertise in people's heads, but more often they are talking about the guidelines, templates, knowledge-bases and registers in their organisation. Either information or intelligence, that's usually the choice. But digital transformation gives knowledge managers a third type of asset to leverage for value. Knowledge embedded in business systems in the form of rules, heuristics and insights. Come along to hear a case study from Stuart French on one such project that resulted in a 50% reduction in processing time, and a reduction in new employee time-to-proficiency from 10 weeks to just 8 days. You will also meet Peter Gregory from Koben, one of Australia's top experts in Umbraco, the main tool used to build it. If you deal with business systems and wonder how KM can impact operations or compliance, then don't miss this practical session.

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.

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
