It is with huge sadness and regret that we have to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Professionals Day and AGM next Monday.
We have been keeping a keen eye on events over the past fortnight and, in light of the current COVID-19 situation, with delegates, contributors and committee members reporting difficulties with attending due to changing organisational travel rules and concerns regarding vulnerable family and friends, we have had to take the extremely difficult decision to cancel now rather than deal with further uncertainty over the coming days and weekend.
We exist for the benefit of our members and feel that the best way to serve you is to postpone the day and re-arrange it into an online format so that everyone, whether they have travel restrictions in place, are self-isolating or simply want to minimise the risk to vulnerable family and friends, can attend virtually.
It will take us a little time to work out the details of how best to deliver the new format, so we would be grateful if you would kindly bear with us.
At this stage we propose rolling over your space at Monday's event to the new event, but we will review things once we have a clearer idea how the re-arranged event(s) will look.
We would like to thank CILIP for their understanding and kindness in helping us with this complex situation. Please note that Ridgmount St remains open for business as usual, and has extra measures in place to help prevent infection, such as hand sanitizer dispensers at entrances and exits, anti-bacterial soaps and additional cleaning procedures.
We realise that you will be disappointed, but once again, we are so sorry that we have had to take this difficult decision but very much hope that you understand in this unprecedented and declining situation and we look forward to seeing you at the re-arranged event(s).
A formal notification about the AGM will follow in due course and we will of course be giving at least 28 days notice for it.
With very best wishes
Helene Russell (Chair) & K&IM SIG Committee
Programme: THIS EVENT WILL BE RE-SCHEDULED
10:00-10.30 Registration and tea/coffee (Ewart Room)
10.30-10:40 Welcome from the Chair & introduction to the Day
10.40-1:00 Morning session – KM Issues
10:40-11:20 KM and IM confusion: does it matter? - Judy Payne / Hemdean Consulting Ltd
Confusion has long existed between KM and IM. To the uninitiated, the difference between the two is unclear – and many use terms such as data, information, content and knowledge interchangeably. Those in the know do this sometimes, too. Is this because they don’t understand the differences? Or do they think the differences aren’t important? Why does the confusion exist, anyway? And does it matter? If it does matter, what can we do about it? In this interactive session, we will explore these questions through anecdotes and by reviewing the development of KM and IM. Judy will invite you to share and reflect on your own experiences, so there will be opportunities to join in if you want to.
11:20-11:50 KM Standard ISO 30401 - Karen McFarlane / CILIP Trustee
Karen McFarlane joined the BSI KM standards committee in 2016, representing CILIP. She was keen as a KM lead practitioner to ensure that the KM practices and procedures that she used in her everyday work were reflected in the standard and that it was not too theoretical. Karen has found working with the BSI and ISO standards process to be a real learning experience.
11:50-12:20 KM Chartership at a Glance and PKSB for Knowledge Management – Dion Lindsay / Real Knowledge Management (DLC Ltd)
Information professionals are often assigned into KM roles with little guidance on how their roles will change, how their current practices need to be adapted, and what new competencies need to be acquired. There are also KM professionals that have come from other disciplines (project management, organisational learning, corporate communication, management consultancy) that are not aware of the contributions that the information management discipline can bring to KM. KM Chartership and ongoing revalidation offers professional development and learning benefits to both these groups (information professionals moving into KM & those moving into KM from other professions).
12:20-1:00 Rock and Rolling in the Queen’s Shoes! – Karen Ball and Tim Milne / DSTL
The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) is an executive agency of the Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom. Karen and Tim will present Dstl approach to adopting best practice for licensing it’s Crown Copyright material.

2:15-4:30 Afternoon session – Practitioners Views
2:15-2:45 Information Management behaviour: people, systems and practice – Katharine Schopflin / London Borough of Hackney
As information managers we know how and why people should manage corporate information, so that it can be found and kept for the right length of time. Yet our colleagues, often instinctively, do the wrong thing and systems frequently abet them. This talk describes common problems and discusses whether we can do anything about it.
2:45-3:15 Supporting virtual communities of practice through the internal social media platform: case study -
Arthur Robbins / Roche Products Ltd
3:15-3:45 The Information Manager of the Year Award winners presentation – Liz Hunwick and Sarah Lanney / Basildon

In this session Paul will take a look at the challenge Knowledge Managers face gaining corporate legitimacy. He will examine the wide range of activities undertaken by "Knowledge Managers" and highlight the core skills he believes essential for success in a KM role.
