Knowledge Management Roundtable (KMRt)

This week I attended a meeting of the Knowledge Management Roundtable in Melbourne. Land & Water Australia is a corporate member of the KMRt which means we get to send 2 staff to each meeting and take advantage of their great Common Interest Working Groups as well. Each meeting (quarterly) has a series of guest speakers within the theme of Knowledge Management.

This week we had the pleasure of hearing about
  • Managing a Workforce of One from Hewitt Associates
  • Collaboration is all about People from James Robertson at Step Two Designs
  • Trying out a Peer Assist with 3 of our colleagues
  • Setting the agenda for the rest of 2008
  • Evaluating our Common Interest Working Groups and where to from here.
The KMRT meets quarterly and is a great blend of both public services and private enterprise charing their information and knowledge issues and developing solutions collaboratively.
