A good Knowledge Management strategy is vital to the success of any knowledge management initiative, and should be one of the early steps in your KM program. We can help you build a Knowledge Management strategy, crafted to your context, which really works.
Knowledge Management Strategy Purpose
Implementing Knowledge Management should be done in the context of an agreed strategy. The strategy ensures that the Knowledge Management implementation proceeds in a way that is aligned with the current business approaches, is targeted on the right problems, and is coordinated with other existing change initiatives.
Knowledge Management Strategy Method
The Knowledge Management strategy is developed in either
- A two to three-day workshop, where we work with your Knowledge Management team and other key stakeholders to address the key strategic elements of Knowledge Management implementation, or
- Through a series of strategic interviews with your senior managers.
The workshop will ideally be informed by the results of a Knowledge Management Assessment and Benchmarking exercise, and by input from management on current business strategies and other parallel initiatives. The strategy document is presented to, and discussed with, senior management, before sign-off.
The document will cover elements such as
- Business drivers
- Value proposition
- Critical knowledge areas
- Change and stakeholder management
Knowledge Management Strategy Benefits
The benefits of a good KM Strategy come in a more effective, and lower risk, implementation program. The strategy we create with you will incorporate the lessons from very many successful Knowledge Management programs, and some less successful, thereby increasing your own chance of success.
As part of our “starter services” package we also offer a one-day Knowledge Management Strategy workshop and a survey-led Knowledge Management Strategy, as low cost alternatives for small organizations, and for KM teams with limited budgets.
