Knowledge Architecture: An Exploratory Workshop, 22 May 2007, at Aslib, 
London

Programme Features
Information Architecture (IA) has established itself in recent years as a 
portfolio of practices combining aspects of web design, usability, metadata 
management and information science with a view to creating information 
systems which people find both useful and usable. Yet, IA conventionally 
addresses only one component of organizational competence - explicit 
knowledge (information). Although information must be managed effectively, 
in the knowledge economy this is not sufficient on its own, leaving out of 
account as it does, that other vital component of organizational competence 
tacit knowledge.

IA however, is evolving in some quarters into Knowledge Architecture (KA), a 
compound discipline addressing all the sources of organizational competence 
- explicit and tacit - within a single, holistic framework. In order to add 
the missing tacit dimension, an additional set of tools and techniques needs 
to be included in the Knowledge Architect's toolkit.
This interactive workshop blends presentation, discussion and practical 
exercises to consider the evolutionary stages involved in the transition 
from IA to KA and to examine the most important tools and techniques 
involved. It presents a number of case studies and invites delegates to 
discuss the implications for information professionals, information 
managers, information architects, knowledge managers and knowledge workers 
alike. Topics include:
-	The evolution of Information Architecture
-	Content Scatter & Integration
-	Case Study 1: The World Bank
-	Metadata & interoperability
-	Ontologies: the organizational context
-	Vocabulary control: Taxonomies & Thesauri
-	Case Study 2: A European Bank
-	Knowledge Architecture: Communities & social networks
-	Knowledge Architecture: Competence Management
-	Case Study 3: An engineering organization

Who should attend?
Knowledge Architecture brings a variety of conventionally isolated roles and 
functions together into a common framework for managing the totality of 
organizational knowledge effectively. This workshop is therefore relevant 
to:
- information professionals  documentalists - records managers - 
information managers - knowledge managers - human resource managers - 
user-facing IT specialists

On completing the workshop you will have gained:
-	an understanding of what IA is and how it is evolving into KA
-	appreciation of the key roles of ontologies and vocabulary control
-	an insight into the importance of communities and social networks
-	familiarity with the types of problems encountered in KA
-	recognition that KA and KM converge in Competence Management
