About Me

Jeremy Sluyters PictureI’m Jeremy Sluyters, Director of Business and Collaboration Systems at JMP Engineering Inc.  I am a licensed Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) and a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).  I live in London, Ontario with my wife and 2 young kids. I am into anything 2.0 that will help a business do better business and want to educate people on Social KM and engage everyone around me using social collaborative tools.

I am a mechanical engineer by education (don’t hold that against me), and have been working with a professional engineering firm for the last 10 years as a Designer, Programmer, Project Manager, Process Leader, and Knowledge Manager. Over the last 5 years I have driven the definition of standards and business processes, championed continuous improvement initiatives, led internal Project Management initiatives, implemented a companywide ERP system, as well as launched a SharePoint portal and knowledge system. My investigation into business and collaboration systems was a turning point in my career.

The goal of this blog is twofold:

  1. Be my own personal knowledge base for all things related to Social KM and Web 2.0
  2. Be a resource site for people interested in 2.0 and not sure where to start

For people who have not embraced the global connectivity movement check out LinkedIn – 280 first degree connections, leads to 40,000 second degree connections which leads to 2.8 million!!! third degree connections. That is profound.

    […] Jeremy Sluyters, Director of Business and Collaboration Systems at JMP Engineering Inc, also gives us a real-world window into how each of us can can play a role in work transformation. From his blog: I was onsite with a customer making some changes to their production system, and I was trying to figure out how to get a “program running” status from a robot, and pass it to a usable input on my controller. I posted this question on, a site I have recently started for the controls and automation community. Since this site is just starting out, I also emailed a couple people that I knew would know the answer, and included a link to the question. And I knew who could help me because I have been in this business for a long time – how many times do you know exactly who to ask to get an answer? […]
