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

The Datafication of Work: Why KM Education is Essential, and Why it Needs to Change Join a facilitated discussion on the educational needs of Knowledge Management Professionals. This discussion will be led by a panel comprising Monash University academic staff: • Professor Frada Burstein, • Associate Professor Henry Linger, and • Associate Professor Joanne Evans. Monash has a long history of Knowledge Management graduate education, with an Information and Knowledge Management specialisation in the Master of Business Information Systems, and IKM units taken as electives by students in other IT degrees (e.g. Master of IT. Master of Data Science). As part of ongoing curriculum development, Monash is keen to discuss with the KM community: • What topics are essential to include in a Masters degree for students facing 21st century information and knowledge-related challenges? • What (or indeed why) do other IT professionals need to know about Knowledge Management? Outcomes: -------------- Participating in this event will enable you to: • Provide input into curriculum development for professional KM education • Define continuing professional education needs Our Speakers: ------------------- Professor Frada Burstein Frada's expertise is in knowledge management tools and systems, including those for mobile and real time decision support. In the past ten years, she has led the design and implementation of portals and ontologies for various health domains and medical emergency decision support. The outcomes included generic architecture for Smart Information Portal (SIP), which supports personalised searches for relevant, quality information, taking into consideration a person’s context. Frada initiated and continues to lead the Knowledge Management Research Program at Monash University. Associate Professor Henry Linger Henry is an academic in the Centre for Organizational and Social Informatics (COSI) at Monash University. His research agenda overlaps three disciplinary areas: Information Systems, Organizational Informatics and Knowledge Management. Henry’s research is focused on understanding how work is actually done within an organisational or institutional context, and how digital technologies support such work. His research has addressed diverse industry practice (meteorology, food safety, defence), national health policy work and community empowerment in the aged care sector. He is a long standing Research Associate with the Defence Science and Technology Group, and an international member of the Project Management Institute’s Academic Insight Team. Associate Professor Joanne Evans Joanne is an archival and record-keeping researcher and educator in the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University, and coordinator of the Records Continuum Research Group. Through an ARC Future Fellowship, she has established the interdisciplinary Archives and the Rights of the Child Research Program to address the lifelong identity, memory and accountability needs of childhood out-of-home care. This involves the exploration of participatory design and research strategies to develop dynamic evidence and memory management frameworks, processes and systems supportive of multiple rights in records and record-keeping.
