    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.

    [RECORDED] Product Data Mastery - Reducing Returns to Increase Margin Through Better Product Data

    Improving product data quality will inevitably increase your sales. However, there are other benefits (beyond improved revenue) from investing in product data to sustain your margins while lowering costs. One poorly understood benefit of having complete, accurate, consistent product data is the reduction in costs of product returns. Managing logistics and resources needed to process returns, as well as the reduction in margins based on the costs of re-packaging or disposing of returned products, are getting more attention and analysis than in previous years. This is a B2C and a B2B issue, and keeping more of your already-sold product in your customer’s hands will lower costs and increase margins at a fraction of the cost of building new market share. This webinar will discuss how EIS can assist in all aspects of product data including increasing revenue and reducing the costs of returns. We will discuss how to frame the data problems and solutions tied to product returns, and ways to implement scalable and durable changes to improve margins and increase revenue.
