Collaborating with your Competitors: Establishing Communities of Practice among Competing Corporate Information Centers
This year’s panel discussion focuses on the significant benefits that can result from collegial cooperation among Corporate Information Centers from competing organizations. The ethical and judicial sharing of experience and information can afford numerous efficiencies and foster mutual strength and success. Our panel will facilitate an interactive discussion with attendees, examining best practices in organizing a Community of Practice and examining how to overcome potential obstacles and avoid conflict. Relevant to Corporate Information Professionals from all industries, we expect the shared interest and experience of participants to result in a program of wide appeal.
