A Business Knowledge Assessment offers an opportunity for business leaders to come to a greater understanding about the way that the knowledge that drives a business is currently utilised. The assessment also provides information concerning any potential problems with knowledge utilisation and will highlight good practice when identified so that this can be encouraged across the business.
A Business Knowledge Assessment is a good way for organisations to either make a start on making more effective use of its knowledge resource and developing it or to review the progress it is currently making through concerted efforts to develop and utilise the knowledge resource more effectively.
The results are based on the premise that the Business Knowledge Resource is a key factor in business success. Furthermore, the knowledge resource is held and applied by the staff that carry out the activities that constitute the business.
The Business Knowledge Assessment will be a relatively short duration activity. It will aim to bring results to the managers in control within eight working days of starting work on the project. This is subject to efficient scheduling and completion of activities.
Managers will also be given the opportunity to consider a more detailed knowledge study and analysis of business knowledge areas. The analysis focuses on the risks associated with the knowledge resource and on options for dealing with those risks. Knowledge Study and Analysis will also offer longer term monitoring of risk reduction and knowledge growth. If it is considered useful, a detailed presentation of the methods and approaches to Knowledge Study and Analysis will be provided as well as help in selecting the most appropriate business areas to apply it to.
(A more compact business knowledge resource consultation is available as a lower commitment option)
