Abstract

Law firms have used both Knowledge Management (KM) and information technology to address their information management needs, but uncovering information in their vast data repositories is still tricky. Kate Simpson makes the argument that it's "the messy middle" that needs attention next, to maximize the chance of success for KM and IT.

Law firms have used both Knowledge Management (KM) and information technology to address their information management needs, but uncovering information in their vast data repositories is still tricky. Kate Simpson makes the argument that it's "the messy middle" that needs attention next, to maximize the chance of success for KM and IT.

What's Inside

The focus of law firms over the last decade has been absolutely correct: to concentrate on people and processes through KM, and on new information technologies and tools through their IT budgets. But maybe there's a third prong that's been missing from this focus? The messy middle: the content assets, the actual information itself contained in documents, e-mails, web pages, blogs, journals, books, video and podcasts etc.
