Trying to manage knowledge without a strategy is like trying to sit at a table without a chair. In this video from KA Connect 2016, Drew Wiberg will methodically walk you through how he used search data to build a knowledge strategy for Eppstein Uhen Architects.
Take notes as Drew outlines the four legs of his knowledge strategy:
- Search: Improve the reach of search queries and control preferred results
- Navigation: Use Navigational Queries to inform efficient intranet design
- Content: Identify and fill gaps in the knowledge base with new content
- Education: Make educated guesses on the training needs of your firm
Don’t end up like Ichabod Crane, without a seat at the table. (I know that doesn’t make sense to you now, but Drew will cover how his experience with The Legend of Sleepy Hollow relates to knowledge strategy in the first minute and a half of his talk.)
