About the workshop
The role of those who know how to gather, collate, classify and make available reliable information has been highlighted in a way unseen before the COVID-19 pandemic. Every organisation needs accurate information to develop, deliver and assess the effectiveness of its polices, programmes and services and to make informed decisions. This workshop is in two modular weeks which can be attended as separate modules. It provides practical tools and methods to design and implement sustainable knowledge and content management systems.
In particular, the workshop will ask:
• Are there key principles that must remain, no matter what the current situation?
• Where is the right balance between reliance on technology and artificial intelligence and human inputs?
• What aspects of previous approaches have been successfully adapted to meet changing circumstances?
• Are there new ways of working that can be institutionalised so that ‘information enriched’ decision making can be enhanced?

• Assess the information and knowledge management strengths and weaknesses of your organisation
