KMKS105. Change Management and Change Implementation in the Knowledge Domain

PRICE: $495.00 Member/ $495.00 Student Member/ $595.00 Non-Member

This course provides information professionals with a set of tools and an essential knowledge-sharing perspective for implementing change in their organizations. Since 60% of all large-scale implementations fail to meet all of their objectives and fully 80% of those failures are due to change management issues, it is imperative that information professionals involved in any new initiatives learn change management and change implementation skills. Having a strategy, developing good plans, and managing the drive to implement are no longer enough to ensure success. Change management focuses on the “human” side of implementation, working with those interpersonal skills that result in success in any operational activity. Especially applicable for the knowledge management and knowledge services (KM/KS) practitioner, change management supports the development and implementation of any knowledge-sharing system, each of which, notably, always involves people and change. This course concentrates on change management as a critical implementation skill, with attendees learning the necessary links between how personal interactions impact and enable the application of a knowledge strategy that leads to the knowledge culture.

KMKS101. Fundamentals of Knowledge Management and Knowledge Services

PRICE: $495.00 Member/ $495.00 Student Member/ $595.00 Non-Member

This course links knowledge management (KM) theory to knowledge services (KS), the management methodology that brings together information management, KM, and strategic learning. Throughout the larger organization, the goal of knowledge services--characterized as the practical side of KM--is to strengthen research and enterprise-wide knowledge asset management, thus enabling contextual decision making and accelerated innovation. Participants learn techniques for implementing knowledge services--that is, for "putting KM to work"--and, in so doing, learn to support the organization as a knowledge culture. Topics include KM/KS history and an exploration of the KM/KS framework (people, process and technology). Participants will develop an action plan to take back to their organization.

Extreme Structure Searching

PRICE: $199.00 Member/ $99.00 Student Member/ $299.00 Non-Member

This course will introduce participants to specialized search techniques for small molecules in the chemical literature: profiling organic, organometallic and catalytic substances by substructure, applying structure and substructure search techniques to polymer searching, and using basic substructure and Markush search strategies for patent information retrieval.  Participants will learn advanced organic substructure search techniques and find out where, when, and how to use them.  They will also learn techniques for locating organometallics and polymers using the substructure search techniques taughtand  will examine the application of substructure techniques to patent searching, including learning the basics of Markush searching.

Updates from the World of Cloud Computing

Despite being overhyped, misappropriated and misunderstood, cloud computing is changing everything from library information services to personal computing.  As many technology suppliers peddle their wares to you and tout the attractiveness of ?being in the cloud,? a critical part of the discussion is missing ? ensuring end user happiness.  This presentation will focus on how information management professionals can evaluate the impact of cloud-based solutions on end user satisfaction and will provide a (document delivery) case study for building a ?cloud above the clouds? to ensure visibility into end users? interactions with suppliers.
