Description

Second Major Projects Knowledge Hub KM Meet-Up

Managing and sharing knowledge in the environment of projects and programmes remains challenging. Plenty of organizations have structures and processes designed to capture lessons learned but applying these in subsequent projects remains a perennial challenge and very few of those organizations have even begun to get to grips with the challenge of tacit knowledge.

The ‘World after Midnight’ is a phrase coined by Eddie Obeng to describe a project environment in which all the rules have changed. Technology, changing social attitudes, globalisation, political turmoil have all combined disrupt the rules of business and to make matters worse, these and other forces of change are moving faster than our capacity to learn.

We need a new approach (or rather a whole series of new approaches) including new ways of working …

Join us in QUBE “… a facilitated collaboration service that will guarantee you Learn to Transform to achieve your goals faster, cheaper and better with more buy-in.” for our second Project Knowledge Management Meet-Up.

What's involved for this second Meet-Up

We’ve split the second Meet-up into two sessions:

Monday 16th July – 18.00-19.15 QUBE Exploratory

An opportunity for you to acclimatize yourself to the virtual environment, experiment, play with the tools and for us to discuss and build expectations for the subsequent session ‘Managing Knowledge in the World After Midnight’.

Monday 23rd July – 18.00-19.15 Managing Knowledge in the World after Midnight

We’ll use the tools (called PETs – Performance Enhancement Tools) Evolve, Dominate or Die to explore the behaviours from the world before midnight that have enabled us to succeed as knowledge managers and to frame the new behaviours that we need in this new post-midnight world - before planning some Sticky Steps to translate our findings into concrete action steps that may point to the theme for our next KM Meet-Up.

I have managed to persuade a team from the NHS, who are experienced QUBE users to join us. They will share their experience of this way of working and help facilitate the event, along with members of QUBE’s own tutoring staff.

What do I need to take part?

You’ll need a copy of the QUBEware installed on your PC or laptop and a simple pair of headphones and microphone. If you already use headphones for making calls on your mobile phone, then those are ideal.

We’ve set the second Meet-Up for after work, to make it easier for you to attend and because we recognise that you may prefer to load QUBE onto your home PC or laptop, rather than your office equipment.

Once you’ve got QUBE installed (we'll guide you to the download and help you with the installation) and your headset ready, then you can join the session from anywhere as long as you’ve got internet access (direct or by wifi). And don't worry if you weren't involved in our first Meet-up in at the start of the year. You missed a great event but you're welcome to join us this time around.

What should I expect?

You should be ready to experiment, learn and immerse yourself in this new, extraordinary environment. We hope that we’ll generate some interesting ideas and outcomes that you can apply back in your workplace to help you manage and share knowledge on your projects. We also hope that you will benefit from this experience of working in the virtual space which you may wish to adopt yourselves for working with your team(s).

Register today

The event is open to Major Projects Association members and members of the Major Projects Knowledge Hub. We are limiting the numbers to 25 people to make sure that we can give you the best experience of QUBE so please do register today. NOTE: to make the session work, we need to ask you to sign up for both sessions, one week apart, both at 18.00 BST on a Monday.
