12:45 PM Roundtable Working Groups: Intranet Improvement Projects
The work of managing a successful Synthesis Intranet is never done. We’ve seen successful Synthesis Teams continually improve their intranets in many different ways, often through a series of thoughtfully conceived and executed small-scale, focused projects.

During this hour, you’ll pool your experiences with the experiences of other KA Advance members to outline an Intranet Improvement Project which aligns with your intranet growth priorities, such as:

  • Engaging Leadership
  • Developing Knowledge Assets for a Community of Practice
  • Improving Directory and Profile Data
  • Developing and Engaging Community Managers
  • Elevating Your Performance as an Intranet Champion

2:30 PM Break + Dessert
2:30 PM Presenter Intranet Improvement Project Fair
Each working group will host a “booth” to share their improvement plans with other workshop attendees.
3:30 PM Roundtable Large Group Discussion of Intranet Improvement Projects
All working groups will reconvene to reflect on their projects and share their observations to the larger group.
4:30 PM Wrap Up
5:00 PM GG_Bridge_KA_Advance Picnic in the Presidio
Join us for a picnic with other KA Advance community members at Off the Grid Twilight in the Presidio. The Main Post is considered to be the “heart of the Presidio,” surrounded by a complex of renovated military buildings, decommissioned cannons, and educational and artistic institutions. From this magnificent vantage point you’ll have a chance to soak in San Francisco and continue conversations with new colleagues and old friends. (Weather Permitting)
