It’s coming to the end of 2013 – that happened so quickly – and an excellent time to audit all of the changes in the SIG Resource Center (SRC) this year.
Not only did we revamp the look and feel of the SRC but we added some key features which have greatly enhanced the usage rate of the site and therefore the quantity and quality of the contributions.
Perhaps most exciting is the update to the Peer2Peer archival process. Our program has gone virtual and questions and answers can now be exchanged on the website. As an added benefit, all members can now access these discussions real-time (instead of waiting for me to summarize and post!) Check it out at: http://www.sig.org/p2p.php
Following the fantastic 2013 Global Leadership Summit in Fort Worth this past October, we catalogued the breakout session presentations and provided a sneak peak in an Anthology. This means you can more easily and quickly sift through the PowerPoint presentations from the 50+ breakout sessions.
This should be a part of every CPO’s toolkit. Check them out here: http://www.sig.org/src.php?id=8527
