Knowledge management

What do we want to find out?

Knowledge management involves creating the conditions for people to make the best use of knowledge and nurture innovation.

The most useful information we find is contacting someone we trust will know the answer or someone who does. We rarely quantify how much time and money this can save. This doesn’t just mean we find the answer, we can also learn from colleagues’ experience and even avoid making the same mistakes and adapt practices that have worked before. To nurture knowledge with external organisations, like universities, who can provide the expertise we need within KCC and collectively across the public sector family in Kent1. We want to review and test new platforms for information & knowledge transference. Because of the complexity of the tools, we will focus on those which are the easiest for people to interact with the content, search and manage their knowledge in a way that suits them. We will build on our collaboration with the CLG/IDeA Knowledge Hub, Warwick Business School on knowledge networks and the internal review of Information Management. We will research how knowledge is currently managed, shared and created. We will look at innovative ways of doing this, like filtering knowledge/recommendations on a specific issue, visualising data to show patterns of working or discovering the “unknown unknowns”. From this, we will look at the applications that can be used in practice2. From existing practice such as the Medway Children Portal & LAA Data Room, we can see that given that more and more issues cross services and organisations, there is a risk that councils will make decisions without making the best use of their collective intelligence. If we are to effectively re-use ideas, we want to make sure we can connect the processes, people and technology to manage this knowledge.

As agreed in the Kent Commitment Such as social bookmarking, community-based search engines, web analytics, feeds, personalised dashboards to recommendation systems and contextual geo-location tools

How can you be involved?

If you are researchers/consultants3, we would like to explore how we could capture together how effective these techniques are on managing knowledge on a specific issue If you are innovators, we would like to explore how we could pilot your tools with a group of staff or citizens on a particular issue

If you are organisations in sectors who have used these tools, we would like to share the learning and explore opportunities for collaboration

What resources do we need?

A lot of Some Not a lot of

Such as Queen’s College and Southampton
