Retain & Reuse Organizational Knowledge

If you’re often saying that you need to leverage your organization’s know-how better, but don’t know where to start or what to prioritize, start here, with us. We save you time and money when we help you capture and share your organization’s invaluable information. Recreating is more costly than reusing, but if you can’t find it you can’t reuse or innovate it.

The gig economy disrupts existing practices to keep know-how we’ve developed available for enterprise growth.  Your experts, know-how and knowledge networks are vulnerable to loss more and more everyday. How do you transfer and retain mission expertise from contractors, consultants or retiring employees to reuse for competitive advantage and mission success?

We don’t know who or where to turn to find current and essential enterprise knowledge.  With so many tools and platforms, it becomes frustrating and time consuming to find out what lives where.

Our project members are often recruited for a new project even before their current project is finished. There isn’t time to really get a clear picture of how we did or did not succeed. Even if we can capture or document key practices or failures, these assets are not normally indexed or organized to ensure that other teams could use them. We need to more easily access our practices to avoid making the same mistakes repeatedly.

Case Examples:

Because project expert networks are constantly in a state of flux, our client wanted to learn how to reduce leakage of project collaborative knowledge.  Knowsaic worked with this client to assess and improve practices to intentionally retain project expertise, collaborative learning and knowledge continuity.  The client has a clearer view of knowledge flows, roles and exchange practices. There is now an explicit practice and culture in the enterprise that captures project collaborative expertise.  The client now leverages the capabilities and value generated through collaborative knowledge acquired.

A Knowsaic client knew that its project teams had procedures in place to capture project processes and results for some time.  Unsure of the extent and coverage areas of these repositories, the client needed to see what lived where and how could it be obtained?  This client’s chief goal was to bring these hidden assets forward for re-use and innovation. Knowsaic collaborated with this client’s teams to identify repositories and topics, designate user context access points and socialize topics and activities for enterprise transparency and re-use.  Increased visibility of content to users in their contexts and workflows spurred improvements in capture and exchange practices. Additionally, the client is benefiting now from its knowledge sharing culture and learning for greater efficiencies and value of information assets.
