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,

Facilitating Cocreated Projects Worth Doing

Online event

Description: Everyone has ideas on a range of things, but how can you bring these ideas into reality? The CoCreated Projects Worth Doing approach is a creative and inclusive activity that enables ideas to be structured and clustered to produce a collaborative project. This session will be conducted as a facilitated conversation, in which the participants will experience how to generate a CoCreated Project Worth Doing in a shared online document. Arthur will start the conversation with a few insights on the process and then we will collectively cocreate a Project Worth Doing for a specific context. Relevance to the KM community is it cocreates new knowledge and builds the project as a vehicle of implementation, which generates both tangible outputs (social benefits) and intangible outcomes (learning, capabilities and confidence to act). Outcomes: Participating in this event will enable you to: - Facilitate your own Cocreated Projects Worth Doing - Influence others to engage in social benefit projects - Increase your confidence to work virtually in inclusive ways Our Facilitator: Dr Arthur Shelley is an international educator, knowledge leader and project curator. He has been associated with KMLF as a supporter, mentor and leader for nearly two decades.
