Metrics / Performance / ROI Panel - KM Cafe

Change management and  focused attention on the bottom line are key drivers for successful information centers.  In this way, validated and verifiable results are articulated as milestones and benchmarks for success.  More importantly, strategic vision grounded in stakeholder buy-in informs our decisions and leads the change.  Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to provide relevant and meaningful metrics as the evidentiary support for our strategic initiatives. But what, exactly, should we measure? Why is it important for us to measure these outcomes?  Is it important to delineate the results not only in quantitative but also qualitative form?  Join us for this exciting  inquiry.

SLA Hot Topic: Aligning Resources for Maximum Insight - Answers, Insights and Ideas

Information professionals are critical to any organizations knowledge value-chain; LexisNexis is pleased to have an opportunity to discuss the present and future of enterprise information services with the exceptional librarian and author Kee Malesky of NPR on Tuesday, July 17th at 10am. This conversation centers on the radical transformation of our profession from providing of answers to collaborating to spur innovation and new ideas. Our conversation with Kee begins with the question of how traditional skills are the foundation for refocusing our jobs; creating a mantle of innovation turning our libraries into idea incubators. It’s an exciting time for info-pros and we are lucky to draw on Kee’s unique experiences researching across disciplines and subjects, the innovative culture of NPR combined with her great success as an author. This session is an open conversation, LexisNexis encourages you to bring questions for Kee and to participate with your own examples and experiences. Kee is the author of, All Facts Considered: The Essential Library of Inessential Knowledge. By the way…Scott Simon has called Kee "source of all human knowledge" Look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
