 Message from the President:                  

Dear Fellow KM Practitioner,

On behalf of the 2013/14 EXCO, thank you for being a valued member of the Information and Knowledge Management Society of Singapore (iKMS).  We remain a non-profit organization, leading and serving information and knowledge management (KM) professionals, through a wide array of resources, including evening talks, seminars, conferences, networking opportunities, newsletters, special interest groups, collaboration forums, and group discussions.

Last year we commissioned the 2013 KM Special Report, which will be accessible to members in May 2014 through our revamped website.  We concluded the iKMS AGM on 28 Feb 2014.  A 1-day KM Masterclass on the Next Generation Knowledge Manager is planned for 28 Apr 2014 and has drawn good response.  We are also planning for a ½ day KM Clinic in end Jun 2014!  Also, iKMS has started to work closely with the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA) to leverage on training funding to benefit our members.  The first WDA sponsored event is likely to take place in Jul 2014, where we are planning for John Girard PhD, a renowned KM academic and practitioner, to run a 2-day KM Practitioners Masterclass.

As an inclusive, practitioner-focused society, iKMS membership will provide extended reach for KM ideas, networks, expertise, best practices and resources, as it will connect with KM national societies/associations from Hong Kong, Thailand and Australia in 2014.  We have plans to include KM networks from India, Middle East and USA in 2015!  At the KM Global Network Event on 16 May 2014 from 1530-1830 at the NUSS Suntec city , iKMS will also launch the first iKMS quarterly newsletter, value packed with latest trends, ideas and best practices in KM, from practitioners, academics and regional/international KM opinion leaders.  A separate invitation will be sent for the KM Global Network Event, so do watch for it!

As iKMS continues with its signature annual conference KM Singapore 2014, which will be held from 01-03 Oct 2014, it has plans to boost its membership base with the entry of commercial members, with sponsorship packages. This allows us to lower our annual fees for corporate members, costing only SGD 1000 a year to sign up, and your current staff will be entitled access to resources, networks and events (or discounted, as necessary).  We hope to attract SMEs to the growing KM community!

So if your membership has lapsed, do seriously consider re-joining as there is much to learn, as well as there is much that the KM community can learn from you!  Please do not hesitate to contact me or any of our admin staff at
www.iKMS.org should you need any clarifications, or wish to support the growing KM network of practitioners.

KM Masterclass

Title: The Next Generation Knowledge Manager

Synopsis: The workforce of the future requires diversity (generational, foreign talent, race, culture), resilience and propensity to value-add. With constant change, static skills and knowledge quickly becomes obsolete and productivity consequently drops.

In the age of free information, knowledge is cheap and freely available. It does not take much to learn and competitive advantage is lost very quickly. It is imperative for knowledge managers to recalibrate their mental models to capture and dispense the right knowledge to the right people at the right time. Understanding the ecology of knowledge will enable KM professionals to make a greater impact to create greater value for their organizations.

This workshop addresses the needs of organizations to remain competitive for the future. As knowledge managers support and sustain the quality and flow of information, fresh mental models will facilitate greater effectiveness for KM professionals to collect, collate, and create conducive environments for workers to share knowledge and expertise.

1. To impart awareness and inspire change on new mental models for work and value add in the new economy
2. To define knowledge needs in the New Economy and distil mental models for effective capture
3. Discover themselves and be inspired to be a change agent for adding real value to organizations
4. To understand and work with the new ecology of knowledge in the context of the changing nature of work
5. To create an Action Plan to motivate people to share knowledge
6. To develop a Personal Action Plan that is aligned to the fresh mental models for effective knowledge capture in their organizations
7. To be an example of a true change agent to champion positive behaviour and attitudes
8. To be aware of management 2.0 and able to utilize key constructs to improve engagement and productivity
