|Title||March Dinner Meeting|
|Topic||Strategy, Knowledge Management, Lean Management – How do they work together?|
|When||March 28th @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm|
What role does Strategy play in our work as project Managers? What is Knowledge Management? What is Lean Management and what can Lean Management offer in our day-to-day work? How are those three concepts connected or are they connected?
Strategy provides direction to the organization, however it often isn’t cascaded down to every level of the organization where employees can see a direct line between their day-to-day work and achieving the organization’s goals and objectives.
What is stopping us from sharing appropriately across the entire organization? How can we improve the cascading of strategy, goals and objectives throughout an organization? Do we know what to share? Who to share with? What to ask? What tools, knowledge, process and understanding are required to do this effectively?
Where do we begin and what needs to be improved: people, process, tools? Once we’ve answered all these questions, what does that give us and will that provide us the magic solution to solve all our problems?
This talk will endeavour to answer those many questions and demonstrate how utilizing Knowledge Management concepts to identify and share knowledge, engage teams and promote collaboration across the organization is critical to successful organizations. We will discuss how a lean thinking approach will inspire a continuous improvement mindset and show how connecting those concepts will help provide clarity, understanding, and stability.
Venue: Petroleum Club, McMurray Room
