Roundtable Series | The Business Value of Knowledge Organization Systems

During 2022 we hosted a Roundtable series, looking at the business value for KOS and how to build capabilities to deliver business value. Each session featured a team of distinguished panelists who brought insights from their experience.

Bob Kasenchak, Patrick Lambe, Michele Ann Jenkins and Stephanie Lemieux joined Ahren Lehnert to discuss organizational knowledge organization capabilities, what it takes to build and sustain them.

This series was developed in partnership with Dovecot Studio, Factor and Straits Knowledge.

Session 1: Why do we need Knowledge Organization Capabilities?
Session 2: How do we Build Capabilities in Knowledge Organization Systems?
Session 3: What does it take to Sustain and Reap Value from our Capabilities in Knowledge Organization Systems?

This series fostered participant engagement and input. Participants engaged through surveys, breakout room discussions, and question-and-answer chat.

To preserve privacy and encourage openness, these events were not recorded. Materials and resources are available to download below.

This simple self-assessment tool for practitioners working with Knowledge Organization Systems (KOS) to identify the areas of strength in their organization and opportunities for improvement to help build the business value of KOS.

This survey was developed for the Innovations in Knowledge Organization Conference 2015, and updated in 2022.
