These days, the most successful companies are those which are able to aggregate, integrate and effectively manage their internal knowledge, accumulated skills and competences; to plan their development from a strategic and operative viewpoint; and, of course, to produce knowledge. These companies work out the “knowledge-based company” approach that interprets professional knowledge and professional competences as strategically the most important human resources, and therefore manage them as top priorities.
Corporate knowledge management does not exist on its own as it can only attain the highest added value through the synergy of the entire corporate strategy, content strategy and content marketing.
The purpose of corporate knowledge management is to support the growth of profitability and from there, maintain and increase their competitive edge.
To that end, the process of knowledge management must systematize and collect the knowledge, information and skills that are of prime importance from the viewpoint of the company’s operation and development in order to work out the regulated and controlled practice of sharing, utilizing and regularly developing knowledge.
Once this is achieved, further efforts are needed to regularly update and enhance obsolete knowledge and to maintain its value.
However, accumulating professional knowledge and competence is not enough, as it carries no practical value without systematic knowledge transfer, attitude-shaping and sensitization.
The most advanced and most effective knowledge sharing and transferring method is the SkillToolkit complex solution, a knowledge management- and competence-based training management solution backed by adaptive eLearning, which – once implemented – helps companies sustain applicable, up-to-date, competitive knowledge.
