Knowledge Management Events
From: Johannes Schunter, posted on 2010/02/23
I frequently have the problem that I find out about interesting development-related KM events, conferences or workshops only a few weeks before. Unfortunately, then it's mostly too late to negotiate with my office and supervisors that I go to the respective event, as my office requires a more long-term planning.
Do you think we as KM4Dev group can come up with a mechanism in which we collect the upcoming KM events of the next 12 months that we know of, so we can all stay more updated on what is about to come? There is a nice events feature in the KM4dev Ning site, but it only features very few events so far.
Maybe we could launch a concentrated exercise every 6 months in which we enter all the interesting events (not necessarily only those which we organize) we know of? If you send your event suggestions through this list by email, I would even be happy to consolidate your contributions and enter them into our Ning calendar.
Looking forward to your opinion/input... :)
