Nuclear energy conversation: “Hidden learnings” in decision-making
3rd and last webinar in this three part Nuclear series

How can we increase the speed of informal knowledge to improve project predictability, decision-making, and investor confidence?

As we know from our recent The Nuclear Institute: Project Management SIG report, the nuclear industry suffers from a lack-of-predictability in projects, which often results in projects that are late and over-budget. Further, these repeated challenges have resulted in low investor confidence. Now, add in the current challenges to move toward low and zero carbon projects alongside the perceived slow decision-making culture. We have a major problem that is larger than any one individual, we have a systems challenge that requires transformational change.

Knowledge Management (KM) is one major aspect of a complex systems approach to decision-making, innovation, and systemic change. KM officially began in 1995 and has matured along the way. KM augmented traditional Information Management (IM) approaches such as lessons learned, and traditional training approaches such as individual productivity improvement.

KM now practices and enhances organisational learning and cross-industry partnership performance. In this webinar, we’ll discuss specific examples of how to shift from lessons learned to shared collaborative learning, from structured to unstructured collective decisions, and especially from formal to informal optimal flow of knowledge.

Notice the word “discuss” because this will be a group discussion as opposed to a traditional watch-and-listen webinar. Please come prepared to deeply listen and contribute to the conversations. John Hovell, PMP, CKM will offer a short provocation, then we’ll have two rounds of small group conversations. We’ll close with a group text-based sharing to collective realise and document the key learnings. The core question for your consideration, and our discussion is, “how can we increase the speed of informal knowledge to improve project predictability, decision-making, and investor confidence?”
