Knowledge Management: be more productive when you manage information efficiently.
Imagine you run a company meeting, but some crucial data about your strategy, product innovation, and new techniques seems to have disappeared. As hard you look through your personal drive and the intranet - the critical information you are looking for simply does not come up again.
Sometimes companies lose the knowledge that develops through learning. This can happen in many ways, but one of the greatest reasons for organizational knowledge loss is the fact that there is often not a well structured space to save the bits and pieces. Plus the shear amount of information we receive everyday is creating a tremendous flood of data which ist often randomly saved. Not putting it right away into the right space will not let us recover these crucial bits, when required.
It is important to remember that the impacts of knowledge loss reach beyond just what employees know. It also involves who they know and collaborate with, and how well they work with the team. On top of such intangible losses, there is often a significant financial hit associated with just searching for the relevant information. According to our study, companies easily spend 13% of valuable work times in meetings and another 12% writing instructions.
This work becomes meaningless, if you cannot recover the knowledge you have just gathered. That's why we find that it worthwhile to establish a flexible documentation process that includes text, images, tables, and more - all stored in a central location.
My preference is the ability to make project depending pages which are easy to be read and formatted. With embedding and editing content from other tools like presentations, whiteboards, spreadsheets, other repositories, and more, you create end-to-end documentation of your learning process.
And the advantage is: you find answers fast! Accelerate your searches for content and answer questions instantly with auto-suggestions. Reduce confusion with info tips that automatically define any acronym or word.
Share automated page summaries so teammates can save time.
Get on you and your team on the the same page at an instance - keep everyone in the know with the most up-to-date information. Stay on track with real-time notifications about comments, likes, and changes to content.
