Information Environment Analysis for the Korean Cultural Center D.C.

Bryon Baumstarck (MIM student, class of 2014) and I conducted this project as the final project of INFM 600 (Information Environment, by Dr. Jessica Vitak) in 2012 to analyze the information environment of the Korean Cultural Center, a branch of Embassy of South Korea in Washington DC. The theoretical model that we used was Davenport and Prusak's six components of the ecological model for information management (1997). We analyzed their information environment through three in-depth interviews with employees in the center and content analysis for the center's Facebook Group and websites and provided technical suggestions to enhance their communications within/among organizations.
