knowledge management:  why does it matter ?


Whether you join us as a knowledge management ‘laggard’ or one of its keenest champions, let’s cut to the chase:-

Why does it matter ?

Or, more specifically, what can KM (be made to) do for you ?

Let’s build on some assumptions:

  • that you work with people;

  • that you operate in a rapidly-changing global market where standing still is not an option; and
  • that you - and those you work with - are being asked to achieve more with less...

people working togetherAssuming that is the case, then perhaps some example outcomes and benefits might interest you:-

  • Faster developed products and/or services
  • Improved customer solutions
  • New business acquired
  • Increased income from intellectual assets *
  • Faster problem solving
  • Costly mistakes avoided
  • Improved customer service
  • Improved competitive position

Whether you feel we’ve tickled a nerve – or simply shown some - we’d invite you to contact 4sight to discuss possible areas to address and suitable practical approaches that are suitable to the size and culture of your organisation.

We’ve also anticipated that you might be interested in an introduction to some practical example techniques and approaches of ‘how’ knowledge management can be applied.

Sample Knowledge Management Tools & Techniques

Intellectual assets:- Intangible assets including knowledge, know-how, information, brands, trademarks, copyrights and patents that are increasingly seen to give an organisation greater competitive advantage (and frequently share value!) than "traditional" tangible assets such as property, land, machinery or productive labour.
