KMWorld 2016 - 14 Nov 2016 Hacking and hackathons are perhaps better known in the geek community, but KMWorld 2016, is taking a page from their book and looking to hack, or change in our case, our ideas, strategies, and practices in using processes and technology to engage our communities. Organisations are changing – flattening their structures, encouraging creative and innovative practices, engaging audiences in different ways, utilising technology to streamline and connect people in new and exciting ways. To be successful, today’s organisations have to look at things with different perspectives, be flexible and fast, able to easily transfer and share knowledge, deal with zeta bytes of data, innovate, engage and impact communities and customers in positive ways. The platforms, processes and programs have to respond in a timely fashion to make this happen and to keep customers satisfied. The culture of the organisation, the people, enables the transformations and innovations – and well-oiled collaborative organisations excel at leading the charge!

ALPSP Training Course: Project Management for Publishing - 23 Nov 2016 Projects are vital to all publishing organizations to move forward and implement change. Everyone gets involved in them. They may involve developing new products, new processes and systems, adopting new technologies, reaching new markets, acquiring new business, selecting new suppliers or improving existing processes.

This course provides those managing projects as well as those working on them with a template and many supporting tools that can be applied to all projects, large or small, to help ensure successful outcomes. It has a strong emphasis on getting things right at the outset because this is where most problems with projects arise.
