The Information Institute (II) exists to enhance the status of professionals engaged in learning, teaching and commercial practice through improving the nature, design and communication of information within organizations. It seeks to develop and maintain high individual standards through assessing and providing evidence of individual core competencies.
Subjects relating to information have emerged in recent years as the most pervasive and fastest growing fields in universities and research centers globally. These include all aspects of business information systems, information science, information technology and information management in attempts to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and performance of organizations. Contemporary topics are frequently characterized through information-intensive processes such as e-business and e-commerce systems, knowledge management and systems innovation. The last decade has seen an unparalleled increase in the adoption and diffusion of these new information-artefacts (systems and technologies), which have had a significant impact on organizational design, structures and behavior. The rationale for research in this area is to investigate, evaluate and disseminate theoretically grounded and valid approaches for information-exploitation in these complex environments.
Membership of II is open to any professional who has demonstrated a successful career progression and an evident contribution to their respective information-related field. Successful membership offers a benchmark for further personal development and career aspirations.
