Your organization knows more than you think it doesiSee iKnow documents the knowledge and experience of your staff and stores it for the target audience. We do this by using an informal type of education which also implements a 'best efforts' obligation.
New technology offers an extended amount of improvement opportunities.
According to numerous studies, less than 10% of the knowledge of an average worker is acquired by formal education. The remainder of their knowledge is acquired in the workplace. Suppose you are given the opportunity to invest in an improvement project, what would you rather use your money for? 1) A 10% increase in the effectiveness of formal education or 2) a 10% increase in effectiveness of informal education, within your company.
According to an independent study the average company loses about 3 to 15% of their annual profits due to unnecessary expenses. Moreover, 60 to 90% of these expenses are directly connected to human error in the workspace. And most of these errors are again caused by the (lack of) experience and knowledge that a worker possesses. So there seems to be a strong link between the reduction of unnecessary expenses and the storing of knowledge.
Our vision of the ideal worldRecognise 'low hanging fruit' and utilise existing concepts that are already present in your company. Delegate your knowledge management as low as possible in your company's hierarchy.
Naturally increase your knowledge
Low hanging fruit
How can you arrange for your company's knowledge to be discovered, stored and taught anew while not having to put in much work and retaining control?
This is knowledge management in it's most simple form, and it is achieved when employees can effortlessly store their knowledge and have it taught only to those who need it. This form of knowledge management we like to call a 'low hanging fruit'. The necessary knowledge is often already present in your company, but is not (yet) utilised.
A lot of knowledge is company specific, yet many of the principles remain rather generic. Companies in the same line of work that are not competitors as well as specialised companies can share their knowledge. When trying to keep your knowledge up to date or when acquiring new knowledge, strength lies in numbers.
“To see our iSee iKnow e-learning system rewarded is an enormous achievement as the system involves the participation of all our workers and combines safety awareness, evaluation and education”
