Several of the LMD sessions were "experiential" such as the one on Dynamic Communication, and so did not have handouts or presentation slides. However, some of the events have been reported in blogs including here in Impact (Conference Category). Feel free to contribute your impressions!
Social Networking: the Essence of Innovation(PDF, large file) / Jay Liebowitz
To stimulate innovation, people need to reach out beyond their own area.
Social networking research highlights the importance of carefully
constructing one's social networks to best leverage knowledge
internally and externally. Organizations should aim to provide enabling
mechanisms to stimulate knowledge discovery. Leibowitz discussed how
social networking can lead to innovation, based on his book "Social
Networking: The Essence of Innovation"
LMD Business Luncheon Presentation – No Excuses (PDF) / Stephen Abram
As part of the the LMD business meeting, Stephen Abram, the globe-trotting
past-president of SLA shared stories about innovative leaders from
around the world, focusing on their strategies and successes, and
illustrating how we can learn from the practices of others. Abram's
goal is to inspire us to become innovative leaders.
Critical Thinking (PDF) / Rebecca Jones, Dee Wallace
Critical thinking is a key competency for all information professionals. It
leads to results such as sharper competitive intelligence products,
clearer, more persuasive proposals and udget justifications, more
effective problem solving, and better taxonomies. How we can improve
our critical thinking skills and engage them in our work?
