Dialog Quantum2 - their first e-book
It sounds interesting in the email. What it is when you go there is 31 pages in PDF that look like a powerpoint presentation.
I was disappointed.
Oh, I almost forgot...it is copyright 2005.
"Leading Strategic Information Initiatives"—Our First Quantum2 E-Book
It is no news to say that we all exist in a business environment characterized by constant change and fiercely competitive global markets . As information professionals, we have opportunities to succeed in this changing environment by displaying imagination, pragmatism, innovation, flexibility and most importantly, a strategic perspective.
In this e-book, information professionals share their experiences in connecting with the organization's strategic objectives. Their examples may spark ideas to help your quest to develop strategic information initiatives in your own organization.
In "Think Big, Add Value," Sue Henczel offers insights from a workshop that connects traditional LIS skills to the business competencies needed in today's bottom-line culture.
Beth Cody, in "The Art of Becoming a Corporate Information Strategist," interviews corporate library managers, including Eugenie Prime and Cindy Hill, who have made the leap to strategic roles.
"Winning in the Boardroom," summarizes an SLA Conference presentation by Donna Scheeder that provides tips for communicating with upper levels of the organization.
So begins the introduction to our first Quantum2 e-book.
