Content (Articles, Reports and Webinars)

The current Topic Series, "Making Information Visible", boasts three upcoming webinars to support at-your-desk learning:

Also within this Topic Series, we've recently published a number of helpful articles, including Eight Steps to Good Management for Visible Information, by series co-producer Martin White.

If you haven't yet done so, register for this series and we will keep you informed about the latest resources released as part of it.

A popular article added to the collection recently is "Preventing Knowledge Loss When Employees Leave" - a very practical objective of knowledge management, whether technology-driven or human-driven. View counts on this one suggest that it's struck a nerve with a lot of readers.

Current reports include the in-depth Product Review of Nexis, which examines the newly released single platform for global coverage, and our monthly Subscription Update for Information Services Management - if you want an easy downloadable PDF to take the highlights of FreePint with you offline, this is the report for you.

Meanwhile, we're already making progress with the co-producers of the next Topic Series "Best Practices in Information Skills Development", which will run from April through June. They're planning a robust menu of offerings to support how you remain at the top of your game and help those around you do the same.

 

Community

We recently ran two industry-focused Communities of Practice sessions, which provide a different way to bring peer groups together to discuss key issues.

  • The first was an in-person meeting in London, with information managers in the financial industry. We reviewed the results of a product benchmarking project this group asked FreePint to conduct; you can read more about the results here.
  • The second was a teleconference for information managers in government agencies and quasi-public organisations. We focused on the unique nature of their stakeholders, planning challenges and bureaucracy. Read more about our conclusions here.

The next industry-focused teleconference will be Strategies for Information Managers in Tangible Goods Industries, taking place in April. If you work in a "real world" industry like manufacturing, agriculture or hardware, this one is for you.

Within the "Making Information Visible" series, we're offering a special CoP session in March: Needs Assessment for Information Visibility. We're offering two sessions to accommodate demand, but please register soon to ensure your spot.

 

Consulting
