What They Are and Why We Have Them

One of the problems with large knowledge bases is that they get so big that they are difficult to navigate. That's been a problem with BI for a long time — one we are forever (it seems) trying to address. One way to deal with this issue is to create sub-sections of the BI Knowledge Base focused on particular topics or user groups. These "User Guides" highlight a subset of BI materials (and external materials related to BI topics) of likely interest to particular audiences or focused on particular broad topics.

We are very interested in recruiting people who would like to help us develop user guides on new topics or for new "constituency groups." We can do the technical stuff — we just need people with expertise in particular areas to highlight whatever materials would be of most interest to their audiences.

Contact us if you are interested, with a copy of your resume and/or a cover letter explaining your background and what kind of guide you would like to create. We'll show you an easy way to do it and post the results (giving you credit, of course!)
