At Clobridge Consulting, we specialize in working with organizations to support their information and knowledge management needs — across all dimensions of the information lifecycle: creating, sharing, publishing, collecting, curating, describing, organizing, sharing, archiving, and preserving information and knowledge.
Each organization has different needs. We help new and established organizations work more effectively, enhance internal or external communication, solve problems, develop strategies to support changing information needs, and position themselves for the future.
Knowledge Management is the process of systematically capturing, describing, organizing, and sharing knowledge.
KM strives to make knowledge useful, usable, adaptable, and re-useable; KM is designed to ensure knowledge — both in people’s heads and in the form of tangible assets – is used to its fullest potential within an organization.
Knowledge Management is about helping organizations ensure that they can best take advantage of its internal expertise, skills, and know-how. It includes helping organizations respond to the challenge, “we don’t even know what we know” – a common issue as organizations become more complex and work becomes distributed across locations and silos. It’s about supporting the flow of knowledge across boundaries and silos in order to foster creativity, spark innovation, and enable the development of new knowledge.
