Overview

Information Proficiency Your Key to the Information Age Thomas J. Buckholtz The Information Age has generated an explosion of information and technology. Currently, executives and empowered employees create a wealth of good ideas. But, how can you sharpen your focus and seize the best opportunities? In Information Proficiency: Your Key to the Information Age, author Thomas Buckholtz shows you how to thrive in these challenging times and put your good ideas to work using information proficiency: the effective use of information to define and achieve goals. Dubbed "the information wizard" by InfoWorld, Tom Buckholtz has led the deployment of information resources and systems for the world’s biggest buyer of information technology, the U.S. Government. In this engaging book, he shares the groundbreaking concepts and techniques he developed while serving as the Commissioner of the Information Resources Management Service, U.S. General Services Administration, where he directed the implementation of computing, telecommunications, and records management throughout the Executive Branch. Buckholtz shows you how to avoid the common trap of focusing too much on technology. Instead, he concentrates on the crucial products of all organizations-decisions and the implementation of those decisions. "Information proficiency provides the power to accomplish your objectives. The components of this power are quality decision making and incisive implementation." In Information Proficiency, you’ll learn how to succeed in the Information Age by first focusing on your goals and then maximizing your proficiency when working with people and fostering teamwork, understanding and using information, and benefitting from information technology. This book provides a wealth of tools to put you over the top: the Information Proficiency Rating Scale; Peer Paradigm for Organizations, Information, and Accomplishments; and All A’s Program. Using the guidelines and techniques in this invaluable book, you’ll not only enhance the overall proficiency of your organization, but you’ll also increase the value of its information technology functions. Information Proficiency offers sage advice on how to:
  • Integrate technologists into the strategic future of the organization
  • Help employees build bright futures for themselves and the organization
  • Manage and use information resources effectively
  • Analyze and increase the usefulness, range, and integrity of data
  • Design systems that are truly capable and flexible
  • Make optimal choices and deals when selecting new products or services
Information Proficiency gives executives, middle managers, empowered employees, information resources and systems professionals, technologists, educators, and students the techniques they need to survive and thrive in this challenging era.

The ultimate survival guide for the Information Age, this book shows how companies and individuals can link information proficiency--the effective use of information to define and achieve goals--to high-quality decision-making to meet today's business and personal challenges.
