Topic: The Social Enterprise – or not. What’s really going on out there?

The media is filled with article after article about a new breed of so-called Social Enterprises. Organisations that have adopted social media platforms, internally and externally, as a new mode of operation in order to be agile, responsive and ultimately more competitive in a business environment that seems to be speeding up by the day.

For the March monthly meeting we will be hearing first-hand from a practitioner who has worked with many such organisations in different parts of the world, organisations who have hitched their future to this new way of working.

Simon Scullion is a social strategist with US-based Jive* consultancy Social Edge Consulting. Based in Spain, his work takes him daily to organisations across Europe and other locations, working with them to reshape their future using social platforms, creating both employee and customer communities. Simon will give us his insights into whether the media buzz is actually being reflected out there in the real world, and what typical obstacles he has had to face.

He will also give us an insight into the way Social Edge Consulting run a global organisation of 30+ people using an ecosystem consisting primarily of a social platform and a culture of ‘working out loud’.

In a first for the NSW KM Forum, Simon will be joining us via a video link from his home base in Spain. For NSW KM’ers, you will need to be in the meeting room to hear and interact with Simon.

Look forward to seeing you there!

* Jive is one of a number of social enterprise products. The presentation will not be platform specific.

Topic: International Case Study: The Other Knowledge Management – Moving to a single collaboration platform

While the KM tools and practices continue to mature, the actual day-to-day experience of employees is that they still struggle to find the basic information they need to do their job. Estimates are still as high as 20%. In this talk, we will hear how a global investment bank’s employees use their enterprise social network to capture, find, and build on knowledge that people use every day, throughout the day.

Jacqui will also share with us lessons learned during their very interesting journey of moving from multiple collaboration tools throughout the organisation to a single collaboration platform.

Topic: “Innovation with Legs”

 How to use Innovation for day to day success…..no matter what your role may be.

Rethinking how we operate day to day is a crucial step in maintaining our success at our respective organisations. Innovative thinking not only allows us to rethink our day to day operations but it also provides us with practical solutions to our knowledge management challenges and offers fresh improvements that can increase our impact and effectiveness. 

Whilst many people may believe that innovation may not be applicable to their individual roles, the reality is innovation is becoming an essential business skill in hundreds of industries and professions around the world, including the world of knowledge management. In this keynote you’ll come away with some practical, replicable and effective innovation tools and processes that you can apply immediately to improve your outputs. 

Anyone can become a world class innovator and this workshop will help to show you how.

Topic: “Boundary Management: Organisational Boundaries & KM”

Dr Tim Kannegieter’s research has significant implications for knowledge management, and he will argue that it may be used as an underpinning or grand theory, drawing together and explaining the relationship between the multitude of KM approaches.

Dr Kannegieter will be giving a presentation on the subject of organisational boundaries, drawing on the work of his doctoral thesis. 

Boundaries mediate almost every aspect of organizational life and yet they are poorly understood. As a result, when it is recognized that an organizational boundary is “dysfunctional” there is little recourse to theoretical models on which to base remediating action – i.e. boundary management. 

Using evidence gathered from his study of the New Zealand Army training group, Dr Kannegieter has developed a model of organizational boundaries, which are conceptualised through a basic social process, called boundary weaving, which combines elements of both structure and of social process.

Dr Tim Kannegieter is currently working as the managing editor of Engineers Media and is applying some of his theories in driving strategic change, converting his organisation from a traditional publisher to becoming a knowledge broker.
