Do you know where the information and expertise in your organisation is? Are the right people accessing it? Do you know how long you should be keeping things for?
Knowledge and Information Management (KIM) is an established practice offered by consultancies and in academic departments.
Freemen Dr Katharine Schopflin and Matt Walsh (who leads the Knowledge Management team at dunnhumby), authors of Practical Knowledge and Information Management, draw on their experience to explain what it all means for organisations and what you should prioritise in your business.
The authors will introduce KIM, explaining how finding information, sharing knowledge and applying information governance works n organisations. They will cover topics such as communities of practice, legacy data capture, data protection and know-how. They will then suggest the five key actions for your organisation.
The evening will focus on the practical, recognising the financial, technological and cultural challenges we are all facing. Their advice is based on their own experience as practitioners across a range of organisations, on implementing initiatives and living with the consequences.
Moderating the evening will be Nick Poole, CEO of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals since 2015. Nick was previously CEO of the Collections Trust, responsible for the strategic direction and management of the organisation. Nick was elected to the Board of Wikimedia UK on 25 July 2015.
