Janders Dean KM Leadership Roundtable Announced

Janders Dean has just announced the details of our next KM Thought Leadership Roundtable Event to be held in Sydney, Australia.

Being hosted by leading law firm Gilbert+Tobin, the topic is one requested by a number of you and relates to the emergence of Enterprise Search technologies and the application of these within the Law Firm Knowledge Management environment.

This invitation only event allows KM leaders from within law firms and professional services organisations to gather together in an informal environment to exchange ideas, discuss emerging trends, and share project methodologies and success stories.

A brief introduction will be followed by an open roundtable discussion on the merits and potential benfits (or otherwise) to the introduction of Enterprise Search into the law firm environment, how the application should be positioned best for successful adoption, a discussion on vendor/supplier trends, and an overview of best practice designs as seen in peer firms. This section of the two hour event will involve participation from US based KM experts.

Justin North from Janders Dean International (Sydney) will be presenting the introduction overview, which will involve summary findings from a recent observational study concentrating on the search behaviors of over 100 lawyers from various practice areas, age groups, and firms from geographical regions.
