Item

My role as director, knowledge and research services at Cargill's InfoCenter gives me an opportunity to work in a wide variety of areas, Cargill is an international producer and marketer of food, agricultural, financial and industrial products and services. I regularly read a wide range of sources. Key interest areas at present are knowledge management (KM), innovation, and business process improvement.

Here are My Favourite Tipples:

  • Twitter: My Twitter feed is about evenly divided between professional thought leaders, news and Indiana University (IU) Basketball, I also subscribe to the IU "Assembly Call" podcast. It is quite amazing to me how fast Twitter on my smartphone has taken over as my primary tool for news, professional content and entertainment. I think the last time I picked up a magazine was in the dentist's office.
  • Nick Milton @nickknoco: Thought provoking ideas about effective application of KM tools and principles. I also read his blog posts and this is currently my favourite knowledge management resource as he has a very practical approach.

I also scan a wide array of news sources and have company subscriptions to the Economist, WSJ and the Financial Times.

An article in Jinfo which I found particularly interesting:

  • I really like insights from Jinfo's director of research, Robin Neidorf, and her team's research on the future of information, the webinars that share "what we've learned" and address hot topics like "Making Information Visible" - and the reports which come out of them, like this one from the "News, and Beyond" Topic Series.
    There are a lot of pretty fundamental and rapidly moving changes in the way information is produced and consumed and I find Jinfo a great resource, between the newsletters and articles and webinars I expect I consume Jinfo's expertise at least once a week.
