Knowledge Aware / what is it?

The Knowledge Aware approach is a coherent and comprehensive, enterprise-level Knowledge Management strategy and technique.

Unlike traditional knowledge management solutions, the Knowledge Aware approach captures and validates knowledge, breaks it down into digestible bite-sized pieces of knowledge, and delivers it to employees and team as they work, when they need it. Instead of searching for information, employees encounter reusable knowledge directly within their flow of work, allowing them to make more qualified and robust decisions.

Some of the common benefits organizations find with the Knowledge Aware approach include:

  • Elimination of recurring mistakes,
  • Improvement in workforce efficiency,
  • Preservation and sharing of knowledge,
  • Reduction in engineering variation, and
  • Reduction in the enterprise IT footprint.
