1:30 PM Roundtable Working Groups: Intranet and Community Management Checklists
Successful Intranet and Community Champions manage Synthesis through a variety of daily, weekly, monthly and annual activities. Our plan for the working groups session is to share these activities, discuss the value of each, and agree on a set of best practices. Each group will produce a draft of an Intranet Management Checklist and a Community Management Checklist.
2:45 PM Presenter Presentations of Findings by Working Groups
All working groups will reconvene to discuss their findings and present their checklists to the larger group. Knowledge Architecture will document, synthesize, and share this knowledge with the broader KA Advance community following the workshop.
