Information management is changing faster than at any time since the invention of the printing press. We use council meetings to share the latest innovations, from gaming and collaborative technology for corporate learning to web-based delivery of information and the challenges of outsourcing and offshoring. Other topics include:

  • Business impacts of information centers
  • E-books value chain
  • Vendor partnership practices and scorecards

Our members have explored such recent survey topics as intranet policies and redesign, intellectual property monitoring systems, and managing innovation and thought leadership.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
