Keynote: Let Your Networks Be Your Guide: Search in a 2.0 World
9:00 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.
Dr. Carla O'Dell, CEO, APQC Author, The New Edge in Knowledge

Carla O'DellA defining feature of our 2.0 World is the reliance on employees to create, share, rate, and consume content. Every employee can be an author, arbiter, and consumer at once. The implications for the networked enterprise are profound: The more people create and interact with each other’s content, the more the content improves; search results get better as the best content and the most active peers bubble to the top; people build new connections to others they never knew had the same interests. Through engaging examples, stories and data, O’Dell shares the latest findings from APQC’s KM research and her new book, including the following: How best practice organizations are using 2.0 to enhance search results; the surprising impact of participation on personal and team performance; and novel ways to get people to participate to enhance search and findability.

A202: Governing the Corporate Wiki: KM as Corporate Culture
12:00 p.m. - 12:45 p.m.
David Schwartz, Enterprise 2.0 Adoption Consultant, Target Corporation

A wiki is fundamentally an ungoverned space: “Anyone can write anything” is a common refrain. Every month at Target Corporation, more than 800 different people contribute content, and more than 7,500 individuals have contributed over the last 4 years. In that apparent free-for-all, a deep order and consistency have emerged, as well as substantial business value. David Schwartz shares the strategies Target has used to govern the space and how the company has succeeded (and failed) as the wiki grew from an idea to a tool used by 30,000-plus team members every month. He digs into the evolving ethos of the environment, and argues strenuously for the vital role of decentralized knowledge management in which every single consumer of content is simultaneously a contributor and editor of content: developing knowledge management as corporate culture.

A204: Employee Voices Transforming KM
3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Leslie Owens, Senior Analyst, Forrester Research

Organizations aim to differentiate themselves by delivering great customer service. To do so, they need to know their customer in order to offer a contextual, personalized experience. New tools and techniques to listen to and analyze the aggregate “voice of the customer” are transforming activities like new product development, crisis management, and brand strategy. In this session, Leslie Owens explores how knowledge managers can use similar technology and processes inside the enterprise to listen to the “voice of the employee.” IT leaders who know their employees are able to segment their workforce to make smarter decisions about technology provisioning and to identify and amplify employee advocates. The role of knowledge managers of the future will be to coordinate and harness the ideas and insights of their workforce just as their counterparts are doing in customer service.

B202: Using Measurement Methodologies to Improve KM
12:00 p.m. - 12:45 p.m.
Jim Lee, Knowledge Management Leader, Vanguard Group
Kelly Hunter, Custom Solutions Sales, APQC

The measurement of knowledge management’s impact on an organization’s performance has been, and continues to be, of great interest to both practitioners as well as executives. For practitioners, the ability to measure KM value is both an operational tool as well as an improvement framework. For executives, the ability to measure KM may simply mean the difference between engaging the organization in the effort, or choosing to use resources for other initiatives perceived to be of greater value. Jim Lee describes recent advances in the measurement of KM, including KM maturity, KM relationships to operational performance, and KM measurement as a driver of organizational strategy. Beginning with a KM maturity model and assessment tool as a qualitative measurement device, he illustrates with case studies how quantitative methods have been applied to KM to identify its effect on an organization’s business performance and influence its improvement strategies.

B204: Practical Framework for KM Metrics
3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Susan S. Hanley, President, Susan Hanley LLC Office Apps and Services MVP

Measurement is not just about looking for a bottom-line result to justify investment.

At every stage in the journey, metrics provide a valuable means for focusing attention on desired behaviors and results.

Knowing what the collective “we” knows is at the core of a successful KM program, but what about knowing what we don’t know? One of the biggest challenges for KM professionals working to understand the health of their organizations’ knowledge ecosystems is to harness the insights at the intersection of data and KM to uncover what is and isn’t working. The first two speakers discuss how Deloitte borrowed the latest analytics techniques from its practitioners to convert everyday metrics into actionable improvements for their internal practice. Built upon a communities of practice (CoP) evaluation framework, Patricia Michalski takes a balanced scorecard approach to CoP metrics. She shares results of this tool that was used to evaluate communities within Deloitte.

Track C - Content Management
Moderator: Holly Pendleton, Organization Effectiveness Consultant and Spreader of Ideas, Independent Consultant

Information and knowledge management and consolidation is an increasingly significant initiative across many public and private sector organizations today. As structured and unstructured content rapidly increases, so does the strain on how quickly and efficiently it can be captured, managed, found and re-used. Understanding when and how to consolidate and eventually migrate content to an authoritative information system can be tricky, as these processes can be time- and resource-intensive. Hear from practitioners, analysts, and experts who share real-world examples, strategies, and practices.

12:00 p.m. - 12:45 p.m.
Hind Benbya, Associate Professor, GSCM-Montpellier Business School

For years we've done the best we can with organizing and trying to manage the knowledge of our companies. We've used content structures and library sciences to catalog and store these assets where our people can find them. But now we're coming to the realization that if we go back to the source, the creators, the people, we have a much better way of connecting people with the ideas and answers necessary to increase our business. Hind Benbya discusses the potential of collaborative platforms (i.e, knowledge and innovation platforms) for facilitating peer-to-peer assistance and helping bring to the surface hidden ideas, solutions and expertise your company needs to address business issues. Benbya describes a three-phase approach to designing and implementing an effective collaborative platform including the challenges and solutions adopted by more than 50 organizations.

This opens the door for rapidly building information workplaces, commonly used applications integrated in a contextual interface, to boost employee efficiency and productivity.
