Piloting Knowledge Management
A key component of your knowledge management strategy involves running some pilot projects. A pilot project is a project where knowledge management can be applied within the business, to address a specific business problem, and to deliver measurable results, and also to act as a proving ground for Knowledge Management within the business.
A client was investigating the concept of Knowledge Management, trying to assess what value it might deliver, and therefore how much they should invest in Knowledge Management implementation.
They asked us to work with them on a few "proof of concept" exercises. The first was a Retrospect of an R&D project which had gone massively over-budget. We held the retrospect, packaged the knowledge, and also created some video stories of young engineers analysing the reasons for this overrun.
When senior management saw the quality of the analysis in the video, and the richness of the knowledge asset, they became convinced of the value Knowledge Management would bring to them, and invested wisely in an implementation program.
Pilot projects are valuable at three stages during implementation.
We will help you develop an understanding of the key knowledge areas within your organisation, the important stakeholders and the potential early adopters. We will then develop Knowledge Management pilot projects that will serve as the template for other projects and applications in your organization.
