Back to Basics: Getting to the Next Level in Knowledge Management

Recorded - available as on demand webcast

Is your knowledge management system like a superhighway without adequate on-ramps? In other words, lots of great information but no way to access and leverage information in a useful and practical way?

Most information-driven organizations understand the importance of knowledge management (KM) for driving business insight and innovation.  And many have worked hard to put the KM systems their communities ask for in place.  Yet, even when all of the 'right boxes' seem to have been checked the results are, for some, below par.  In contrast, others manage to show results quickly, often with limited resources - salvaging programs that have gone "off the rails" or even failed to deliver anything at all.   Why is that? And, more important, how do they do it?

In our next Executive Roundtable we’ll explore what “doing it right” means and ways to achieve excellence without extravagant budgets. We’ll cover:

  • Why some information management programs continue to achieve suboptimal results
  • Why other programs achieve positive outcomes despite few resources and short timelines
  • How to overcome risks such as poor change management and ethical challenges
  • How to show quick wins using search, metadata, content, collaboration, intelligence pilots
  • How to define metrics and KPIs that matter, and move from documents to data
  • How to upgrade your expertise and transition to a new role when the program wraps up
  • Ways to select target processes, prioritize initiatives and make the business case
  • The best way to serve the diverse needs of multiple communities of practice
  • How to socialize your program and create organizational change

Join EIS and our panel of experts for an intriguing exchange of ideas for transforming KM into a knowledge ecosystem that is adaptable to the evolving nature of information - all by focusing on the fundamentals.

Use Customer and Behavior Data To Create Personalized Experiences

The more quickly customers can find the product they are seeking, the more likely they are to complete a transaction and to return to the site in the future. Personalizing offers and making well- targeted recommendations can bring customers and products together faster, and are effective ways to engage customers by creating a more positive customer experience. In order to do this, companies need to capture and use as much relevant information as possible. The more that is known about the customer, the more effectively the recommendation system works.
