Afternoon Workshop: WHAT PLANET(S) ARE WE ON? Techniques for discovering clients' actual perceptions and practices - and our resulting opportunities

While the term 'information audit' may sound severe to some, it is in fact our gentle business. We need to understand in detail the actual practices knowledge workers follow (or don't) so that we can develop appropriate strategies for our own work and recommendations for the organization's overall approach to information policies and tools. Ulla shows the well proven steps in a process to discover and document what knowledge workers actually do - so that we may derive plans based on reality.

Banquet Presentation: POSITIVE POLITICS-How information professionals can support the organization in creating a healthy workplace

Ulla offers a highlight commentary on simple techniques for fostering an environment where people look forward to coming to work: Key considerations to employ every day in information intensive environments apply to overall interpersonal and hence organizational relations.
