We all love an acronym. So it’s always nice when you get to areas of work who love to use them together and have a chat.
I attended a joint APM SIG yesterday between the Knowledge SIG and The Project/Programme/Portfolio Management Office SIG.
We had four topics to discuss as groups. Covering
- 21st Century Joy – Old-fashioned Knowledge Management – how can we move it from the 1990s to the 21st Century?
- Knowledge Opportunity Knocks- PMOs and Knowledge Management – what are the biggest opportunities?
- K to the M to the PMO – Knowledge Management in the PMO – what it is and what it isn’t
- Lessons Recorded – Lessons learnt – the BIG knowledge management myth
There was a great buzz and lots of conversation.
These are just some of the highlights that came out of the discussions
21st Century Joy
- Little differences makes a big difference when knowledge sharing
- How to find quality in the volume
- KM needs to follow the organisations evolution
Knowledge Opportunity Knocks
- New skills in content curation and knowledge marketing
- Better to live of peoples experiences rather than peoples paper
- Quantifying the benefits of knowledge sharing
K to the M to the PMO
- PMO is the network, try and avoid the silos
- A PMO’s role is to facilitate between departments
- Disseminator of process lessons
- The power of positive stories (including what went wrong)
