Taxonomy Development and Knowledge Audit workshops with Patrick Lambe

ACTKM is proud to bring Patrick Lambe to Canberra to present 2 outstanding workshops. Numbers are capped at 20 to ensure optimal benefit to the particiapnts. Building taxonomies and conducting knowledge audits are two of the most important - and difficult - activities that a knowledge management (KM) team may be responsible for. From one of the most experienced KM consulting teams in the world, we bring two workshops to share step by step methodologies and a set of tools for both activities - based on over a decade of practice and solid research.

Taxonomy development workshop 17 - 18 October 2013
Knowledge audit workshop 21 - 22 October 2013
Location: The Brassey, Macquarie Street Barton, ACT 2600


Using interactive techniques and practical exercises, you will learn how to plan and conduct taxonomy and knowledge audit initiatives. We use case examples to illustrate the methodologies taught, and you will have an opportunity - both during and after the workshops - to think about how to apply them to your own organisation.

Each workshop stands alone, but you can also take them together, at a discounted package price. For example, one of the most reliable ways to collect evidence for a corporate taxonomy is to conduct a knowledge audit.

Taxonomy development workshop 17 - 18 October 2013
Taxonomies are powerful instruments for breaking down siloes and fostering collaboration and learning - not just for information accessibility and navigation. This unique two day programme is focused on helping participants to develop and implement a taxonomy to support the knowledge management objectives and programmes in their organisation. It exposes participants to the range of different ways that taxonomies can be used to support organisation effectiveness, and imparts key design principles for a usable, maintainable and effective taxonomy. We teach an approach to taxonomy development that takes into account different stakeholder needs to ensure maximum adoption and it stresses the importance of a taxonomy as a living system with an active governance and evaluation process around it.

The workshop approach combines presentation of frameworks and proven methods with interactive exercises and opportunities to relate the content back to participants' own organisations. A secure online blog is available for up to three months after the workshop to share queries and follow up questions. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and skills to develop and deploy taxonomies effectively in your organisation.

Knowledge audit workshop 21 - 22 October 2013
Performing a knowledge audit is probably the most important foundational piece of work you can do in Knowledge Management. It forms the basis for identifying what knowledge assets exist and where they are, identifies knowledge flows, knowledge gaps, and improvement opportunities to support the business. This one and a half day workshop is based on ten years of knowledge audit practice around the world, and gives a robust methodology and toolset to help knowledge and information management practitioners focus on practical interventions that will get buy-in and support across the organisation.

The workshop approach introduces the methodology through practical exercises with feedback and analysis, and is accompanied by a set of diagnostic tools. A secure online blog is available for up to three months after the workshop to share queries and follow up questions. Our goal is to equip you with the knowledge and skills to conduct a knowledge audit in your organisation, and work with the results to design helpful interventions.
