  7. 7. ecdpm and social media pilots Work plan 2010-2011 “Recognising knowledge management and communication as a field that cuts across all the Centre’s departments, we accept the need to address it persistently but gradually, without placing an excessive workload on our staff. We also need continually to ask ourselves how to strike the right balance in terms of addressing the general public and working with the media. Finally, we are conscious of the need to bring in new working methods and techniques offered by new technologies. Before introducing these, however, we test them thoroughly to find out whether they can add value to our work”. “Intranet and IT architecture – renewing internal technical set-up and our way of working: The KM unit and the IT office will work together to fundamentally renew our internal information and knowledge exchange architecture. This work will touch on all areas of the organisation, it will include: a re-design of our intranet, change and/or updating of the archiving (including shared photo database and change of central storage system); simplifying and harmonising of the knowledge exchange within teams and across Centre by use of social media tools. 2010 will see a start of this long-term project and substantial investments in training to get the new technologies integrated for daily use in-house’ Hence these awareness sessions on social media.
