Knowledge Worker Productivity: Strategies & Techniques

KM World & Intranets 2007 November 5-8

San Jose McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, CA

In collaboration with Richard Marrs and Eric Mack, I'll be presenting two new sessions on accelerating decisions and innovations and boosting knowledge worker productivity.  Details after the jump...

Knowledge Worker Productivity: Strategies & Techniques

Monday November 5, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Half-Day Workshop: Personal KM (PKM) explores how expertise and effectiveness scale up to organizational value with a focus on the capabilities and contributions of each and every knowledge worker. PKM starts with individual priorities and processes that lead to self-organization in the workplace with values, skills, and tools to build stronger teams and networks from the ground up. Successful companies know they have to evolve. Executives consider knowledge worker productivity to be a priority for bottom-line results. Knowledge workers need to make informed decisions, but then they need to translate decisions into successful actions. This workshop teams PKM pioneer Steve Barth with e-productivity expert Eric Mack for solutions that will work for you and your organization. Together, they offer a framework for sustainable personal and team effectiveness that blends learning and collaboration-oriented tools and practices with the kinds of action and outcome-focused habits and behaviors found in action management methodologies, such as David Allen's Getting Things Done or Stephen Covey's 7 Habits.

Accelerating Decisions and Innovations

Wednesday November 7, 10:30 am - 11:15 am

Steve Barth, Reflected Knowledge; Richard Marrs, Managing Director, Warren Company

Innovation & KM: Supporting better, faster decision making is a major imperative for KM practice. This session draws on insights from cognitive psychology and complexity science to reconsider how knowledge workers individually and collectively interact with their information environments and share their perceptions and opinions with important implications for how to support knowledge work. Knowledge, information and data are everywhere in business ecosystems, but the challenge of synthesizing fragmentary signals into actionable intelligence is really more about human cognition and organizational culture than business technologies and organizational structures. We'll look at structures, practices, and tools that support sense-making and lead to better business outcomes.
