Strategies for Adopting Collaborative Working Technologies - Dion Lindsay
Venue: CILIP, 7 Ridgmount Street, London, WC1E 7AE
Date: Wednesday, 22 October, 2014 - 09:30 - 16:30
Many employers feel collaboration in their organisation is not good enough. But there is a risk that the adoption of collaborative technology, without either strong evidence of current activity or a model of how collaboration works, will have little impact on organisational performance.
This workshop will start out by examining the way in which people work together in organisations and what makes the process of collaboration different to other team activities before looking in more detail at the elements of a collaboration technology strategy.
The objective of the workshop will be to provide participants with the information needed to get the best from current technology by understanding the basic principles of collaborative working, and to be able to define the requirements for any additional technology investment.
Who should attend:
Information professionals in middle and senior management positions in public and private sector organisations who wish to advance the effective exploitation and management of electronic information. It will enable them to:
Identify opportunities where improvements in information services need to be well managed and delivered
Experiment with a range of change management and marketing techniques
Develop draft marketing and/or change management plans for a proactive approach to their challenges
The course is designed for anyone who has a current or planned responsibility for encouraging collaboration in their workplace, whether from the library, information centre or intranet or technology departments.
