Bruns and his team shadowed research scientists to learn how and why they shared - and didn't share - their knowledge with their peers. He will discuss findings of how researchers used (and did not use) their existing knowledge management systems, personas of the different types of pharmaceutical researchers (The Conductor, The Expert, The Advice Seeker, The Hermit, The Human Robot, and The Collaborator), strategies for enlisting the participation of the various personas within the organization, recommendations for how to create the next generation of the client's knowledge management intranet, lessons learned from this study, and best practices on conducting ethnographic user research to guide the success of your organization's intranet.
