RealKM Magazine is very honoured to receive a Platinum Award in the 2020 Australian Society for Knowledge Management (AuSKM) Awards. The award recognises excellence in sharing high-value knowledge management research through concise, practically-oriented articles for knowledge management (KM) practitioners and a broader management audience.
RealKM founder Stephen Bounds and editor and lead writer Bruce Boyes were on hand to accept the award in a virtual event jointly hosted by AuSKM and the Victorian Knowledge Management Leadership Forum (KMLF) on the 9th of December.
We gratefully thank AuSKM President David Williams, AuSKM Secretary Nerida Hart, and the AuSKM leadership team for this prestigious award. We also thank the generosity of our RealKM Patrons and our article contributors for making RealKM’s valuable work possible, in particular RealKM Platinum Patron Dr Arthur Shelley of specialist consulting firm Intelligent Answers.
The founding objective of RealKM was to share “high-value knowledge management research through concise, practically-oriented articles” to a knowledge management (KM) practitioner and broader management audience that is often time-poor and lacks exposure to research evidence. RealKM has resoundingly achieved this objective, and continues to do so.
Illustrating RealKM’s impact, over 50,000 readers visited the RealKM website during the past 12 months, and more than 20,000 have engaged through social media. Many of the more than 1,300 RealKM articles have been viewed many hundreds or even thousands of times.
RealKM has also gone well beyond its founding objective to support other important aspects of KM capability improvement. This includes leadership and support in regard to emerging initiatives that are shaping the future of KM.
