My Favourite Tipples are shared by Noeleen Schenk, director of information management and information architecture consultancy Metataxis. She shares some of her go-to resources for learning about the latest business and technology trends and reveals how she keeps up with the sewing community.
As a consultant, I need to constantly scan the horizon to keep up to date with current thinking and emergent trends and developments. These range from technology trends to sociological and behavioural changes. Plus, I need to keep up with information and knowledge management-specific topics and trends. I try to read a range of sources, which go in and out of favour depending on my mood and current client list. Here are some of my favourites:
Harvard Business Review: You'll find business-related articles by some of the world's greatest thinkers here. That's why Harvard Business Review has been one of my favourite resources, going back to my MBA days. One of the most interesting authors is Rosabeth Moss Kanter, who writes about leading positive change. My favourite article on information and knowledge management is "Managing your Mission-Critical Knowledge" by Martin Ihrig and Ian MacMillan.
Information Management: This is a really solid resource for all things information and data-related. I might not always agree with the opinions, but it is important to see a diverse range of views. Although quite a few of the articles, and especially the white papers, are written or sponsored by organisations, I don't think it detracts from the content.
MIT Technology Review: One of the sites I use to keep on top of IT trends, MIT Technology Review is a resource I dip in and out of. I am currently interested in Digital Ledger Technology, of which Bitcoin is one of the most (in)famous applications, and how it might change how we manage information and data. I don't think it's a panacea, but I do think there are valid use-cases.
An article in Jinfo I found particularly interesting:
