The Power of Information

Driving organisational performance through effective knowledge management

Events - 21 Aug 2014

An often overlooked element of business where there is opportunity for efficiency - is in knowledge management.

Through a number of case studies and keynote presentations as to how the relevant legislation enables efficiencies, this seminar highlighted how organisations could potentially save thousands of dollars and drive improved productivity.

As governments of all persuasions seek more efficiency from the public sector, there exists right under our nose potential savings if government organisations simply became more aware of the opportunities presented by existing legislation to reduce the costs associated with document management and storage.

Beyond awareness there must be action and this seminar will highlight successful case studies from both the public and private sector in successful management practises that have achieved records efficiency.

Information management directors and professionals from across the public service will benefit from attending this session. Gain strong supporting evidence to develop your own business cases that will potentially save the public service millions of dollars.

Topics Included:

  • Private sector case study
  • Achieving organisational efficiency
  • Knowledge management and business performance
  • Professional records management
  • Financial savings
  • Change management
  • Understanding the State Records Act 2000
