Previous seminars

KPIs: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, 31 May 2017

Kate Muir explored how to craft high-quality KPI’s using the balanced scorecard technique, and how to avoid pitfalls by examining examples of the ‘bad and the ugly’.  Kate has over 20 years of practical experience in delivering innovative Information Management, Knowledge Management and relevant Information Technology solutions to clients across government and the private sector.

Using social capital to build organisational capability, 31 March 2017

The March 2017 RealKM Connect seminar explored how organisations leverage the intellectual capital that resides externally to the organisation to achieve organisational objectives. What sort of resources are out there, how can you access and trust them. What are the risks involved? Most importantly, how can you keep them engaged?

The workshop included an activity, “Race to Mars”, as well as a knowledge café to explore practical ways to find and build social capital to support speculation as to the nature of organisations of the future, the transformation of the knowledge worker, and the formal and informal work relationships that will develop.

Results from the workshop were shared with the participants with strategies that can be implemented in the workplace.

Are you standard? Aligning knowledge processes with current ISO & AU Standards, 31 January 2017

The January 2017 RealKM Connect seminar explored the practical application of standards to knowledge processes. Guest presenter Arthur Shelley ran through the existing ISO and AU standards and guidelines, and an audit of knowledge processes using the Knowledge Ready Organization assessment criteria (aligned with the standards’ requirements).

Workshop participants then used the material to create a prioritised plan for application.
