Build your competitive intelligence with benchmarking

Build your competitive intelligence with benchmarking | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Legally and ethically gathering relevant data on your competitors can be a valuable, productive practice. And construction companies can go about doing so in a variety of ways. Among the simplest ways to build your competitive intelligence is to benchmark key metrics of your construction business against those of similar companies. That way, you can get an idea of whether you’re lagging behind in important areas or perhaps excelling in ways you didn’t even realize.

I think that video technology will be even more pervasive than today in collecting, connecting and sharing intelligence, more immediately, person to person and person to group. I agree that primary collection will continue its decline since more will be available digitally. Hopefully the quality will be better than what's out there today.

Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers | LawyerKM

Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers | LawyerKM | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it
I am constantly reminded of the importance of communicating effectively.  And I am repeatedly convinced that a simple message delivered in a simple way is most ("Communicating Knowledge Management (KM) to Busy Lawyers" by @LawyerKM

 

Connections  Are the Key…

My favorite (and primary) way to communicate KM to lawyers — and the representation in the KM card, above — is to speak in terms of connections.  It’s about “connecting people with people, connecting people with knowledge and information, and the processes, procedures, and technologies required to make those connections.”  I like this approach because it is broad, yet meaningful.  It allows me to talk about various aspects of KM from culture to technology, without eyes glazing over.

I carry the KM cards with me at work (and elsewhere).  When I need to explain KM to someone, I talk about connections.  After my elevator speech, I hand them a card as a take-away mnemonic.   “Here’s an easy way to remember what we do,” I say,  “the KM department’s email address is on the back.”

The more “complex” definitions of KM are fine when talking to people in KM circles and getting into the depths of knowledge management, but when talking to busy lawyers, spouting some convoluted, jargon-bloated, “nonsense” is the surest way to lose their attention.  Lawyers are no strangers to jargon.  They know it — and will reject it (and you) — the second they hear it.

Knowledge Management | 5 Keys to Enterprise Knowledge Management

Knowledge Management | 5 Keys to Enterprise Knowledge Management | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

With the rise of search, brand transparency and agile channeling, corporate knowledge can no longer be contained within an organization’s pre-determined boundaries; it must become an infinite, available and ever-evolving resource. Three little words have turned enterprise knowledge management, and specifically information and knowledge related to customer service, on its head in recent years: "Just Google It." A recent study from Fleishman-Hillard found that 89 percent of consumers go directly to business websites or turn to Google, Bing, or another search engine to find information on products, services or businesses before any human to human interaction takes place, if it ever does.

Competitive Intelligence in the Legal Industry

Competitive Intelligence in the Legal Industry | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Intelligence is about smart observation. Most law firms don’t get it. They employ “stick fetchers”: people who are asked to collect massive amounts of data and information with little rhyme and no reason. They call this competitive intelligence. It is neither competitive nor intelligent. In true intelligence, we observe, we interpret and we convey insights.

Report: Nebraska overuses solitary confinement for juveniles

Report: Nebraska overuses solitary confinement for juveniles | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it
(AP) — Nebraska is overusing solitary confinement for juveniles and has no statewide policies or oversight to ensure that the punishment is applied uniformly at different facilities, according to a report released Monday. The report by the ACLU of Nebraska says some juveniles have been placed in isolation for minor rule violations, such as talking back to staff members, having too many books or refusing to follow directions. Conrad said the group doesn't object to temporary seclusion for safety or security reasons, but that detention centers are keeping juveniles in solitary confinement for too long and without sufficient reason. Juveniles in solitary confinement are also more likely to commit suicide or hurt themselves, said Amy Miller, the ACLU of Nebraska's legal director. According to research published by the Department of Justice, more than 50 percent of all youth suicides in juvenile facilities occurred while young people were isolated alone in their rooms. Department of Health and Human Services Deputy Director Tony Green said his agency's facilities use solitary confinement as a last resort and aim to keep juveniles isolated for less than four hours.

In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library? | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

As for virtual librarians, Capizzo suggests that what a real librarian does is more useful. “Would you ask, ‘What makes teachers so vital to schools?’” she asked. “Librarians are committed to promoting lifelong learning in order to create a community of well-informed individuals. Librarians are catalysts to enlightenment for their communities.”

Libraries Changed My Life

Libraries Changed My Life | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it
Real life accounts from library patrons whose lives have been changed for the better by libraries.

 

Libraries Changed My Life (LCML) is the brainchild of two librarians from two parts of the country. Ingrid is a children’s and teen librarian from New York City. Natalie is a systems librarian from rural Florida. Together we’re hoping to create a place where people can tell their library stories, and those who are questioning the value of libraries can see their amazing impact. LCML is an independent, grassroots movement to spread library love across the country.

Why we’re here:

Libraries are valuable—and valued. In addition to traditional services like book lending, research help and children’s programs (still the services Americans value most), libraries offer free wifi, technology training, free or low-cost public meeting spaces, affordable printing, access to music and the arts, and other services our neighborhoods need.
