Learn how to manage your information resources effectively
Information is crucial to modern business success, yet all too often companies fail to effectively manage the people, technologies and systems that support and distribute it. Here's your chance to discover how to manage your organisation's information resources in a strategic, integrated way, at an innovative two-day Cambridge workshop.
The Information Management Workshop, taking place on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 April 2009, is being run by respected local training provider Roem Ltd. It will be led by Martijn van der Kaaij, an experienced graduate consultant, project manager and lecturer, specialising in e-archiving, information management (IM), knowledge management (KM), business process management and implementation of workflow systems.
Says Roem founder and principal Karen Roem: "We usually concentrate on practical software training to help people get the most from their Microsoft Office and LiveLink packages, so this is a slight departure for us.
"However, as important as it is for individuals to build their skills, a bigger picture has emerged – of the organisation that is not fulfilling its potential because its information resources are not managed in a cohesive, strategic way. The result is waste, fragmentation, duplication and lower productivity, and these are the sorts of problems this workshop seeks to address."
Martijn van der Kaaij explains: "Most organisations have a lot of experience with projects to develop specific ICT solutions, but the development of an integrated information strategy and a corresponding information architecture has often hardly begun. This means that investments in ICT are often not as effective as they could be, and sometimes completely ineffective!
"This course - intended for managers with ICT responsibilities, process managers, ICT project leaders or specialists, and company librarians or archivists – aims to introduce information management as the foundation for bespoke and cost-effective information services in an organisation."
During the workshop, participants are expected to work on an assignment which can be a standard case (provided). Alternatively, they can work on a case related to their own working environment, so that they leave the course with pragmatic solutions to implement in their own organisations straight away.
The workshop, which takes place at the Sun House, Queen Edith's Way, Cambridge, costs £895 + VAT. It includes buffet lunch and refreshments on both days and a workshop handout, as well as one month’s post-course advice.
