Welcome!


Workshop purpose context

Workshop purpose & context

  • Forum for exchange of ideas for PEM practitioners

    • Issues, solutions

    • Opportunities

  • Provincial PEM business case

    • Technical feedback

    • Organizational & support issues

    • Implementation Framework & Plan

  • External perspectives on PEM program overall


Pem the province proposition the business case

“PEM-the-Province” proposition — the business case

  • Present business case has raised some cautious interest

    • Business case can be broadened & strengthened for other SFM benefits

  • Need to determine nature of concerns

  • Need to undertake technical “due diligence” (this workshop as a start)

  • Need to prepare an Implementation Framework (Go/Nogo)

    • Overarching strategy, key elements, principles, assumptions, uncertainties, linkages, etc.

    • Project management, performance, governance

    • Business drivers

    • Technical components

    • Infrastructure components

    • Schedule and resources

    • Training and extension

    • Cost

    • Options

    • Integration, etc.


Technical workshop issues opportunities for british columbia

  • Implementation Workshop — late June (Go/Nogo)

    • Structured review of Framework by key clients, stakeholders, custodians, etc.

Pem is now officially on the radar screen

PEM is now officially on the radar screen

  • Relatively new ‘methodology’ operationally

  • High on the inventory agenda

    • Clients

    • Investors

    • PEM practitioners

    • Researchers

  • Presently under the looking glass


High expectations building for pem

High expectations building for PEM

  • For many — significant expectations for ecosystem-based inventory information at bargain basement prices!

  • Greater efficiencies and smarter approaches indeed hold promise

  • But, need to manage expectations with extreme care

  • History shows that oversold inventory systems come and go

  • Ultimately PEM must show its value at the resources decision table

  • Like our management systems, PEM will be scrutinized closely for its —

    • relevance

    • quality

    • value for investment


Pem not unique to bc

PEM not unique to BC

  • Predictive spatial and temporal ecological modeling techniques abound elsewhere too

  • A number warrant consideration with the BC circumstance

  • Some of these ideas will be advanced in this workshop as food for thought

    • Additional focus on ecosystem-landscape-hydrological processes

    • …address contemporary SFM questions regarding ecosystem-landscape function, integrity and conservation


Pem challenges how we presently do things

PEM challenges how we presently do things

  • We use inventories and classification systems in ways that were never originally intended

  • Raises strategic questions regarding rationalization of current inventory product portfolio & tool box

  • Topics that are of central interest to the FRIC, LUCO and LIICC


Pem at crucial threshold

PEM at crucial threshold

  • Need to think positively but critically

  • Learn from mistakes

  • Work collaboratively

  • Have open mind to better techniques

  • Not reinvent wheels

  • Ask for and seek help

  • Strive for excellence

  • Be realistic
