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)
slide4
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.
slide5
Implementation Workshop — late June (Go/Nogo)
    • Structured review of Framework by key clients, stakeholders, custodians, etc.
  • Prepare comprehensive Implementation Plan for Sept 2001
  • Subject to…? concerted effort begins April 2002
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
slide8
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
