Topics/Presenters for Wed, Sep 11th
Analytics and Executive Leadership - What KM Professionals Need to Know
Leadership is about movement. Moving a group or a team in a direction consistent with a business objective. Leadership is notoriously difficult because organizations have a tendency to fall into the ILLUSION OF HOW...focusing immediately on the 'solution' without really understanding Why, When and Where. Leadership's job is to understand Why something is happening...Where are we relative to the desired objective and When will we know when enough is enough and it's time to undertake the next journey?
The Business Architecture and KM Linkage
Session: Wed AM (8-11), Sep 11, 2013
Strategy tells us what we are going to do responding to the business landscape and business architecture defines the structure of how we execute delivering goods or services into that landscape market. The 2 core enablers of execution today that support the execution are knowledge and the digital part of the enterprise or as most people say "IT."
Effective use and management of knowledge depends on the linkage to the business architecture.
The business architecture is made up of several types of models that contain language phrases. These phrases can be used in analytics to assess the impact of change, rank options and compare alternatives. These phrase analytics provide a link between strategy, process and knowledge. There are 5 categories of models that form the business architecture. A key category of business architecture is the knowledge model of the business. Constructing and analyzing the knowledge model is core to understanding impact of change on the knowledge of the enterprise.

Getting Started with Business Taxonomy - Unlocking the Keys to Successful Info Management
Business users are more active than ever in the publication and consumption of information. From big data, to social computing, to content and document management, more information is being generated and thus the need to effectively manage and retrieve that information is all the more critical. Business taxonomies present an integral component of this information management solution.
This presentation will provide best practices and a proven approach for the design and development of intuitive and sustainable taxonomies that will serve today’s information management efforts and will offer a series of real world examples from the public and private sectors.
Is Storytelling All It's Cracked Up to Be, and How Can it Possibly Relate to KM?
The KM Transformation Solution™ - KM Methodology and Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM)™
Many organizations and KM leaders implicitly operate as if Knowledge Management (KM) is just another tactical initiative in a long line of other continuous improvement methods. According to Peter Drucker, “Every few hundred years…there occurs a sharp transformation…society rearranges itself…fifty years later…a new world…We are currently living thru such a transformation.” KM includes the maturing body of knowledge that enables a successful transformation into the post-industrial, Knowledge Age.
