The changing nature of the world of work and its impacts on IKM
Wed 7 June 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 BST
Are you interested in future developments in information and knowledge management and their impact?
Metataxis and Realising Your Future are pleased to announce that we will be hosting an open discussion forum in Mayfair, from 6:30pm on the 7th June 2017. The topic of this forum will be the changing nature of work and the likely impacts on information and knowledge management. We really hope you will be abe to join us.
The world of work is changing rapidly and beyond recognition. These changes include:
- Anywhere, anytime, any device, any app environment
- Gig economy – or working in a project based manner, coming together as teams for a limited period before moving on
- The blurring of boundaries between personal and professional roles
Changing technology, legislation/regulation, social changes (and people’s expectations) and the economics of how organisations organise and operate are amongst the key driving forces for all these changes. Amongst other aspects, this will impact on how we create, access and manage our information and knowledge.
These changes raise many information governance questions for both consumers and creators:
- How might ownership/ control of information assets change?
- What issues might arise in managing security and access?
- What effect will this have on multi-channel access and connectivity and increasing personalisation?
- Where do the boundaries of responsibility lie given the distributed and temporary nature of work?
- What impact will this have on jurisdictional boundaries?
The aim of the evening will be to have a broad-ranging discussion with colleagues considering and speculating how the these changes will impact on our users and therefore our IKM profession.
