“High Hopes –  Pink Floyd, Knowledge Management & Driving Innovation in a complex organisation”

Andrew’s talk will highlight some of the barriers in knowledge based organisations which affect effective knowledge sharing and innovation.

The talk will highlight the practices and tools that Arup utilise to capture and re-utilise knowledge and how this is a driver of innovation within Arup but also the lessons learnt.

He will set out what he sees as the problems in today’s knowledge based organisation that act as inhibitors not only to sharing knowledge but also to innovation.

The talk emphasises the importance of the Human dimension and why creativity is for everyone in an organisation.

The NSW KM Forum is currently reconsidering how it services the Knowledge Management community.

Attendances at monthly networking meetings over the last couple of years have been good without being great, so we are reaching out to our members to understand our relevance for KM professionals in a fast-paced environment with many different sources of professional information and a sprawl of interconnected disciplines like collaboration, innovation, social enterprise, activity-based working, community management, digital workplace, etc.

Please take the 5-10 minutes required to let us know your honest opinions in order that we can determine how (or even if) the NSW KM Forum can remain important to your professional lives.

Your responses will form the basis of decisions we make regarding the continuation of the NSW KM Forum. It is a volunteer community and, like all such communities, requires the ongoing interest and participation of its members to keep it alive and active!

Please simply click here to go to the SurveyMonkey Survey to complete the survey and help us keep the NSW KM Forum relevant and healthy.


On behalf of the NSW KM Forum Committee, thank you in advance!
