Entries open for MIKE Awards

| July 12, 2019

Entries are open for the first full Australia/NZ MIKE (Most Innovative Knowledge Enterprises) Awards.

The MIKE Awards build on the successful Global Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises (MAKE) research program, established Teleos, in association with The KNOW Network, which run for almost twenty years and ended in 2017 following the retirement of its founder Rory Chase. A number of regional and national MAKE studies have been conducted annually.

In association with industry partners: AusKM, Global Access Partners and Macquarie University, the Australia/NZ MIKE awards, will recognise innovative Knowledge Management work in Australasia and are designed to:

  • seek and celebrate innovative knowledge initiatives and knowledge management,
  • share innovative knowledge initiatives and solutions via practical case studies, and
  • connect practitioners to share and co-create new approaches with the global knowledge community.

Applications close 9th August 2019 with the award winners announced at the end of August. At the end of September Australia/NZ category winners will be submitted to Hong Kong for Global Awards.

Participants will be asked to consent to their case study and case study submission data being used and published as part of academic studies and research.   The aim is to share the case studies with the wider Knowledge Management community.

The application process simply involves the following:

  • Part A: write narratives/stories on the efforts of your nominated Knowledge Initiative in relation to each of the 8 assessment criteria (max 2 pages each criteria) with any supporting data and evidence where appropriate;
  • Part B: a self appraisal (max 1 page) on your chosen performance measure/s.

After formally applying to participate, member/s of the MIKE Awards/Research Committee will arrange with the participant a meeting/interview to mentor participants through the criteria/approach and obtain some additional baseline data.
