MANCHESTER, England, September 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
This new Blue Paper introduces the concept of explicit and tacit knowledge and how to capture not just data, but the wisdom and information concerning how 'things work around here.' It poses the question as to how well your organisation could function with the loss of a key member of staff and explores ideas for sharing information throughout the organisation on an on-going basis - rather than when compelled to do so.
The paper offers a brief look at the history of knowledge management (KM), a five-step process to define a KM strategy as well as outlining methods to extract knowledge from individuals and teams to the benefit of everyone.
"This Blue Paper offers plenty of practical advice and demonstrates why Knowledge Management is essential to organisations of all sizes," says Cheryl Jackson-Leafield, Marketing Manager of 4imprint UK and Ireland. "It considers how to research and implement a strategy, the importance of behavioural change and presents a couple of case studies to inspire the reader," she concluded.
