Re: Information Professionals Wanted #jobs

If we had made it about the people and not systems we would also be a lot further along. The OPM group studying AI discovered that they need KM as a formal job series to aid them in understanding the practices. Now OPM is looking for federal contacts for people who hire or supervise KM. They have plenty of DoD where it is more prevalent. If we had also set forth a standard for what KM is we would be further along. Making it an inspected program would have done it also. In the past there were many ways to identify what missteps were taken along the way but remember those Giants of industry were plowing without their ox, using a hoe to do the work we are using tractors on.

I just wanted to say how refreshing your email was, and to highlight the following telling phrases:
Consultants who:
"can be seriously engaged in innovative projects”
can demystify the unnecessary hype
can manage expectations,
Dreamers need not apply;
hostility toward the indiscriminate usage of the word "disruptive" preferred

If we had used Bostonian in KM job advertisements from the late 1990s, KM might have progressed faster than it has.

Dear Friends,
As the Head of KM at Takeda Pharmaceuticals, I am looking for a couple of *consultants* that fit the attached professional profile.
I am looking for people with a broad professional and skill profile, able to provide traditional library services as well as  more modern Information Science consulting services to internal stakeholders, and even become influential thought and action leaders in ML, AI etc.
In regard to the deployment on more modern AI/ML projects, I am looking for people who really *know* what is going on, can demystify the unnecessary hype, can manage expectations, can be seriously engaged in innovative projects, are able to create a true perception of what these innovative disciplines can realistically achieve, and can deliver accordingly.
Dreamers need not apply; hostility toward the indiscriminate usage of the word "disruptive" preferred   😉
We'll be flexible regarding physical location, but Boston (or vicinity) residence is a plus.
If interested, please reply to giovanni.b.piazza@.... Replies to the group are immediate cause of disqualification 😁
Looking forward to hearing from you.
