Connecting Knowledge Communities: Approaches to Professional Development

Connecting Knowledge Communities: Approaches to Professional Development

From the NetIKX website, details of the next NetIKX Seminar on 21st September. A year ago, NetIKX, with the cooperation of a number of other organisations in the field of knowledge and information management, ran a meeting called “Connecting Knowledge Communities”, at which representatives of a number of professional membership  organisations, including NetIKX , talked about their membership, their focus and their mode of operation. The organisations were: Henley Forum for Organisational Learning & Knowledge Strategies, the Knowledge and Innovation…

Connecting Knowledge Communities

Connecting Knowledge Communities

The forthcoming NetIKX event “Connecting Knowledge Communities“, scheduled for Wednesday 23rd September, is shaping up to be one of those ‘must attend’ events for anyone who is confused (or bemused) at the plethora of different groups and communities dedicated to the support of knowledge and information professionals. To quote an abstract from the event promotion: If you want to consider how membership organisations work and gather ideas and tips for your personal networking, this will be a good meeting to…

Wider Horizons For Information Audit

Wider Horizons For Information Audit

It’s a paradox of our time that the more information that organisations create or consume, the less they understand it. Specifically, most organisations don’t know what information they’ve got, where it came from, where it is stored, who owns it, how good it is (in terms of accuracy and relevance), and perhaps most importantly, what value it may have, if any. More often than not it’s only when there has been an unauthorised leakage of information, or when wrong information…

Content Curation Primer

The Internet is a wonderful invention. We can find out almost anything we need to know, from cures for rashes to what’s on at the local cinema to the recipe for chocolate cake. We’ve come to expect that whatever we need to know, someone somewhere will have made it available on the Internet. Better still, with the revolution in mobile technology, we have access to this information more or less at any time, any place and on any device. We…

Online Information Conference & Show Closes

Online Information Conference & Show Closes

As reported in a brief statement posted to the Online Information Conference website, there will not be an exhibition or conference this year, 2014, with no certainty that it will re-appear in the future. Another victim of these austere times no doubt, with exhibitors, delegates and organisations paying closer scrutiny to the value of every penny spent. Rightly so, but nevertheless, it is a sad reflection of our times, where the opportunities for establishing new connections and developing new relationships…

Email is dead: Long live email!

Email is dead: Long live email!

Am I the only sceptic that is prepared to challenge the “great myth” that email is the root cause of worker inefficiency and the blight of our 21st century lives? Perhaps this seems odd coming from someone who is an advocate for social technology as an enabler for more effective sharing and collaboration.

Information Management: Evolution or Revolution?

Information Management: Evolution or Revolution?

What is the future for the Information Professional? ‘Big Data’, open data, linked data, data visualisation, social technology.  Data and information is coming at us from all directions and in a variety of formats. Are we managing all of this, or is it managing us? This presentation, recently given to the Information Management Directorate of the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office is a small peak at a huge topic and is aimed at providing a broad perspective of the (information)…

What makes a good knowledge professional?

What makes a good knowledge professional?

Some reflections on my experience at the Exploiting Knowledge and Information symposium held at Cranfield University on 1-2 October 2008. The event was sponsored by the UK Government’s Knowledge Council. Given this was an event for senior civil servants I suppose I shouldn’t have been too surprised by the fact that most speakers spent a good proportion of their time explaining how important they were, what power they wield and what governance structures they had set up/were responsible for. As…
