Technology Strains and Stressors for IT and Knowledge Leaders: A Joint meeting of the Boston KM Forum and Boston SIKM

Thursday, March 22, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., Just this month we are meeting on the 4th Thursday instead of the 3rd Thursday of the month. Back to normal on April 19th.
Microsoft, 201 Jones Rd., Sixth Floor, Waltham, MA 02451. Directions.

SPEAKER: Panel from SIKM Boston and Boston KM Forum will contribute and lead the discussion.

TOPIC: We’re entering into a world of BYOD — ‘bring your own device,’ as KM leader Jack Vinson puts it — and this is putting strains on the IT and knowledge leaders. At the same time, it is opening the door to easier communications from many locations, and helping extend the digital workplace for many employees needing to work at a factory, from an airport, or from home. BYOD has a sister, BYOA — ‘bring your own app.’ The explosion of applications that are easy to use, almost free, and meet many basic collaboration and knowledge-sharing needs is putting even more pressure on IT and knowledge leaders.

What do BYOD and BYOA mean for your team’s responsibilities, your community’s boundaries, your quality and management, and the engagement of your employees?”
