Measures that Matter to Decision Makers

PRICE: $230.00 Member/ $115.00 Student Member/ $300.00 Non-Member

Ah, if only knowledge managers and information professionals could identify “magic measures” that would convey the value of information services to decision makers. While Rebecca Jones has yet to find any such measures during her 30 years of working in this sector, she has found, through many informal surveys, an approach to successfully identify, manage and communicate meaningful measures. What's a meaningful measure? It's a measure that matters to your decision makers and demonstrates that your services are making a meaningful difference to the organization. Rebecca provides a framework for defining, analyzing and conveying measures that are meaningful and to your situation--complete with worksheets!

Rebecca Jones, Dysart & Jones Associates

Using the Data Curation Profile as a Means to Engage Researchers

PRICE: $345.00 Member/ $230.00 Student Member/ $400.00 Non-Member

Many in the library world believe librarians have an opportunity to play a vital role in the development and stewardship of publicly accessible collections of research data sets, a process often referred to as data curation. However, working with data is a new, unfamiliar area for many librarians. The Data Curation Profile Toolkit is a set of inter-related resources designed to capture information about data generated by single scientists/scholars/labs based on their needs and preferences for these data. The DCP Toolkit can be used as a means for launching discussions between librarians and faculty, exploring research data needs, and helping to plan for the development of data services.

Project Management for Information and Knowledge Managers

PRICE: $230.00 Member/ $115.00 Student Member/ $300.00 Non-Member

As technology becomes more prevalent in the library, information specialists are becoming innovators and technologists as well as content managers. They are now actively managing an organization’s information assets (including new technology projects) rather than passively responding to requests. Project management concepts, tools, and techniques discussed in this half-day seminar will help anyone complete technology/knowledge management projects on time and within budget while meeting project goals. Knowledge of PM will help you avoid common pitfalls, such as vague definitions of goals, unrealistic plans, and lack of meaningful schedules.  Participants will leave the course understanding how to put together a plan and budget, lead a team, and manage the project through completion.

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.

Enterprise Search

Search is among the most disruptive innovations of our time. It influences what we buy and where we go. It shapes how we learn and what we believe. It's also a radically multidisciplinary, creative challenge that's restructuring the landscapes of publishing, librarianship, communication, and knowledge management. In this talk, Peter Morville defines a pattern language for search and discovery that embraces user psychology and behavior, cross-channel information architecture, multisensory interaction, and emerging technology. He identifies design principles that apply across the categories of Web, e-commerce, enterprise, desktop, mobile, social, and real time. He also explains how future methods and user experience deliverables can help us  create better search applications today and invent the improbable discovery tools of tomorrow.
