Knowledge Management Advent – Door 13: “The Board Tool” #KMAdvent17

Time taken: 45 minutes

What is “the Board Tool”?

The Board Tool is a simple framework to help you meet current challenges by quickly assessing opportunities to make better use of knowledge as an asset. Completing the tool will enable the organisation to assess what is working well and what more could be done; spot practical initiatives on which librarians and knowledge specialists can lead to help you meet your objectives and set priorities for better mobilising evidence and organisational knowledge.

How can LKS use the Board Tool and what are the benefits?

LKS Managers are encouraged to take the tool to their senior team and work with colleagues to complete the self-assessment so priorities can be considered. The LKS manager can then draw up on action plan to address priorities that will have the greatest impact on the bottom line. The organisation strengthens its position by better mobilising knowledge and the profile of the LKS is raised.
