Are we so focused on input that we’ve overlooked the need to output information?

Prior to becoming involved with the content and information management industry, I spent several years in the high-volume printing industry. I was a mid-level executive for a large health insurance provider and was responsible for printing and mailing, pre-press and offset printing, and electronic book publishing across four states. And let me tell you, my teams concentrated on output. Tons of it. Twenty four hours a day, 365 days of the year. Imagine stacks of paper everywhere and truckloads of output being shipped and mailed nationwide. This is in great contrast to today and my current involvement in the enterprise content management industry (now Intelligent Information Management) where our attention is largely focused on input...with much less focus on output. We aggressively capture data, input that information into advanced systems and databases, and then safeguard it with methodologies and teams designed to collect and protect information.

[Podcast] Inside the Action at The AIIM Conference

Have you ever watched a football game or other sporting event where they gave the players or coaches microphones? Or, how about an 'after show’ of your favorite reality tv program? I don’t know about you, but these are some of my favorites to watch because it gives the viewer a more intimate look than you would get by just watching the game or show normally. In these ‘real life’ situations you can hear directly from the players as they pump up their teammates, hear the strategy being passed between players and coaches, or hear directly from a reality tv star about what they were feeling during a specific situation.

Thanks AIIM—This Isn’t Goodbye

Some of you may know that, when I was a kid, my dad was my high school principal and my mom was our high school drama teacher. Basically, it meant that NO ONE asked me out on a date. But it also meant that I had a unique front row seat for observing my parents in their ‘natural environments’. I knew they taught, I knew they loved what they did, and I knew they were really, really good at what they did because all the kids and teachers loved them. Naturally, I wanted to teach as well. But, unlike them, I had no idea what I wanted to teach. So, as my siblings became a teacher, a pharmacist, and an entrepreneur respectively, I became what they struggle to understand -- “Now what exactly is it that you do?”
