Law Firm Knowledge Management Awards Launched

We are pleased to introduce three new award categories as a way of recognising outstanding achievement in law firm Knowledge Management in the APAC region. All awards will be presented during an exclusive evening cocktail reception at L’Aqua at the conclusion of the Knowledge Management conference. The three new Janders Dean Law Firm Knowledge Management Award categories are as follows.

Knowledge Professional of the Year

This award will be presented to the individual Knowledge Professional who has demonstrated a clear commitment, innovative vision, strong leadership and valued delivery of service in the area of legal Knowledge Management across the course of the year.

Judges will be looking to identify those nominees who have brought personal initiative and commitment to take their firm’s Knowledge Management efforts beyond the assigned, expected or common level, and those who have gone beyond a specific project or task to deliver value.

The award is open to all levels of knowledge workers and is not aimed only at senior management personnel. The knowledge worker may be a representative of the firm’s professional support lawyer network, the firm’s library and research team, the central Knowledge Management or information management delivery team, or the firm’s management.

Nominations for this award should outline the activities undertaken by the individual which clearly provide knowledge value to colleagues and management.

Knowledge Team of the Year

This award will be presented to the team that can demonstrate both tangible and intangible results from a full programme of Knowledge Management initiatives.

The team’s activities must be able to clearly demonstrate innovation and value delivery, while also showing that the team can act as knowledge sharing advocates and catalysts for change.

Judges will be seeking to identify teams that have contributed to the broadening and strengthening of firm wide expertise and learning communities. Activities such as the creation of new knowledge, the capture, sharing and reuse of existing knowledge, and the provision of tools to enable others, should be shown to clearly contribute to increased lawyer efficiency, the reduction of firm risk, or cost avoidance.

Knowledge Management Project of the Year

This award will be presented to the team that can demonstrate both tangible and intangible results from a specific Knowledge Management initiative or implementation.

The initiative should be innovative and demonstrate the engagement of senior management as well as colleagues. The initiative should demonstrate a new or creative way of thinking, should have delivered savings in terms of employee productivity or cost-efficiencies, or alternatively should have delivered positive cultural change.

Nominations for this award should outline the actions taken to ensure engagement of colleagues and management, and should detail how the initiative was kept on time and to budget (or alternatively should indicate how any failings in the project were overcome to deliver a positive end outcome).

How to Nominate

Nominations for all awards are currently open to all Australian and New Zealand private practice law firms, and will close for all awards on 6th August 2010.

Entries are to be made by submitting an A4 page MS Word document/.pdf to the email address addressing the above criteria. The statement may be supported by a maximum of 15 PowerPoint slides illustrating (visually where possible) the results attributable to the entrant’s actions and influence. Digital video attachments are also acceptable.

Submissions will not be shared, published or distributed outside of the awards team and judging panel without prior consent from the nominating organisation. Entry is only open to delegates attending the 3rd Annual Janders Dean Law Firm Knowledge Management Conference. Only entries received by 6th August 2010 can be put forward to the judging panel for consideration.

An independent judging panel consisting of a selection of corporate knowledge workers, in-house legal representatives, and industry analysts has been commissioned to assist with assessing individual award nominations. Neither Janders Dean nor the conference sponsors will be participating in the judging process.

Get in there!
