One more instance of dreams coming true :)
KnowledgeBoard workshop at KM Europe: Personal KM?
In spite of KM’s evolution as a field, a key question remains unresolved: ‘How do we improve knowledge workers’ productivity?’
Much of knowledge management practices are focused on an organisational level; interventions and systems are designed and implemented without much thinking of how they would match the practices and daily routines of individual knowledge workers. While this personal side of knowledge management seems to be neglected in corporate KM initiatives it has increasingly become a topic of discussion by KM practitioners.
Personal KM is about personal effectiveness: about knowing what is your expertise, being an effective networker and finding time to participate in interesting conversations, about managing your ideas, communication and documents, selecting tools that help without adding stress, about getting your work done and knowing how to make space for reflection and learning even when deadlines are piling up.
Knowledge Board is proud to host an afternoon workshop on Personal KM on November 9th, providing a space for collaborative exploration of the emerging world of Personal Knowledge Management. In this workshop we are going to share personal experiences of being effective knowledge workers, to look at methods and tools that make us smarter and to discuss what and how personal KM can add to organisation-wide KM initiatives.
So, you are very welcome to join us on 9 November, 15:00-18:00 (and make sure you are there for dinner after it :)
Two places to contribute:
- Workshop topics and format – add questions to be discussed and your ideas about structuring the whole thing
- Workshop participants – add your name there if you are planning to join (or just thinking about possibility)
