Summit Afternoon Session: Tactics for Strategic Partnerships and Building Institutional Knowledge

As the 2016 PLLIP Summit draws nearer, we are excited to provide additional detail about our afternoon sessions. As we have done in years past, we will be offering three unique sessions in the afternoon, each to be repeated twice, so attendees can select two of the three to learn from.

Tactics for Strategic Partnerships and Building Institutional Knowledge

Is information spread out throughout your organization like bits and pieces of a puzzle? What would happen if you gathered all those pieces together? Perhaps you’d recognize something about your firm or business you didn’t know before – that’s intelligence. Maybe you could share up-to-date information with several groups at once – that’s process improvement.

What can you do to create intelligence or improve process in your organization? How about strategic partnering with other departments to share information?

This program will provide attendees the tools needed to identify information gaps within an organization and will reveal ways to develop partnerships as a means of leveraging relationships, creating new opportunities, and reaping the benefits of institutional knowledge.

A moderated panel of your peers will share real life examples of how they collaborated with other departments and shared resources to create or improve services, knowledge, and intelligence within their organizations. Examples will range from simple steps to improve workflow to conducting a full scale information audit to increase firm-wide opportunities and visibility.

The panel:

  • Moderator – Elaine Egan, Head of Research & Information Services – Americas for Shearman & Sterling LLP.
  • Panelist – Connie Crosby, Owner, Crosby Group Consulting and currently in charge of Knowledge & Library Services for Houser, Henry & Syron LLP
  • Panelist – Marlene Gebauer, Director of Knowledge Solutions for Greenberg Traurig
  • Panelist – Chris Laut, Director of Law Libraries and Knowledge Services for Liberty Mutual Insurance
