Still places for actKM 09 Conference

There are still places available for actKM 09 which will be held on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th of October 2009 at the Australian National University (ANU) Canberra. Cost will be held at the very affordable price of $690 per person, representing the best value for money KM conference available.

actKM 09 is planned to look to the future and consider what the discipline of Knowledge Management in 2020 will be like. Will KM dissolve into general management practice, will it mature into the critical management discipline that many believe it should be or will it mutate into something we have yet to envisage in order to survive.

The keynote presentation Faith, Magic and Culture in Knowledge Management, is from Patrick Lambe from Singapore. Proceeding will be Amanda Horne’s presentation on how positive psychology pulls people (and their knowledge) together. We will have an Accelerated Networking activity from Optmice and experiential workshops on Collective Intelligence by Jay Hays and Tackling Wicked Problems by Valarie Brown.

The annual dinner and awards evening will include our famous collaboration cabaret and our after dinner speaker Dr David Vaine of Apparently KM PLC, tackles the generation gap in the workplace between Gen Y workers and the rest of us, and the implications for assuring the future of minimal impact KM.

From Melbourne, Frank Connolly will share his work on Thinking Skills and Arthur Shelley on why Knowledge initiatives fail. Dr Helen Hasan will lead an experiential ‘Back to the Future for KM’ activity and Mark Schenk’s ‘Story Slam’ activity is sure to entertain.

Laurie Lock Lee opens day 2 on Corporate Social Capital followed by the results of Sally Burford’s study on how large Australian government agencies are using KM standards, guides, frameworks and models.

The afternoon will include a hypothetical chaired by Nerida Hart on KM in 2020 followed by usability guru Andrew Boyd on managing the user experience for Gov 2.0. Matt Moore will once again entertain us with his experiences with lepers (real ones), consultants, salespeople, and bureaucrats.

The conference will finish up with an emotional presentation by Dr Siwan Lovett on People, Passion and Place that will expand our ideas about ‘knowledge’
