Seeking, understanding and sharing articles related to your field in a regular basis can help develop one’s skills in organising, annotating and presenting a project. These tasks are important in managing people regardless of what industry you are in. The same processes are practiced in facilitating content curation for your blogs, internal circular and company newsletters for example. This is an interesting blog about it:
Content Curation Primer
Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition: http://www.bethkanter.org/content-curation-101/
Content curation is beneficial not only to the content curator and readers but also to the company in general. It simplifies information that are helpful for the management and staff thus saving them time – without missing relevant context in running the business. Internal and external communication will be more efficient despite not spending a lot of time reading company documentations. This is a must to do to avoid information overload!
