The Nova Scotia Provincial Library will be hosting the CLA Teleconference "Knowledge Management Synergy - An Integration of People, Process and Technology" with Tracey Weiler, Manager of Knowledge Management at Research in Motion on September 7th.  Not just for businesses and special libraries, but for all types of information enterprises including public and academic libraries, Knowledge Management (KM) principles and tactics enable effective use of institutional knowledge and can be applied in any organization to ensure that its full potential is realized.

This session will focus on four main areas:
1. A fundamental understanding of the theory and strategies underlying Knowledge Management
2. KM Synergy - An Integration of People, Process and Technology
3. A case study of Research In Motion's Customer Support Operations department will show
how Knowledge Management theory has been turned into a best practice at Research In Motion
4. How you can implement Knowledge Management best practices within your organization

In addition to being Manager of Knowledge Management at Research in Motion (RIM) Tracey (Palmer) Weiler is an MBA candidate at Wilfred Laurier University. A proven team builder, Tracey has also worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Knowledge Management and Nitidus as Research Analyst where she was involved both in KM and competitive intelligence.
