Dr Judy Payne works as a management consultant and reluctant academic specialising in knowledge management, collaborative working and learning. Her work is positioned firmly on the boundaries between academia and practice. Not the most comfortable place to be, but there’s such a huge gap between the two that there’s a lot of bridging to be done.
Judy works with public, private and third sector organisations to improve their management of knowledge, with universities to develop and deliver online degree programmes and with master’s students to help them learn how to do management research. She speaks regularly at conferences, training events and in webinars. She is a member of the BSI Knowledge Management Standards Committee and of the ISO working group for Knowledge Management. She co-founded and co-chairs the Association for Project Management’s Knowledge SIG.
Judy has authored many journal articles, contributed knowledge management sections to books and project management guides, and produces short whiteboard animation videos with Vanessa Randle of ThinkingVisually. Her book Managing knowledge in project environments written with Eileen J Roden and Steve Simister will be published by Routledge in early 2019.
