The Act Knowledge Management (ActKM) Forum was initiated by a small group of Australian Public Service and private sector knowledge management practitioners based in Canberra, Australia, towards the end of 1998.
The ActKM Forum is a learning community dedicated to building knowledge about public sector knowledge management. It aims to provide an environment where members can create and share knowledge about public sector knowledge management issues.
This environment consists of creating opportunities for members to have conversations and capturing our experiences for other members to use. This is done in a number of ways including monthly meetings, focus group discussions, email discussions and a repository of relevant information available via the Internet site.
The Forum has three main themes:
Understanding how to implement knowledge solutions in a public sector environment;
Gaining a better understanding of the people aspects of knowledge management; and
Raising the profile of knowledge management among senior public sector managers.
