Title My knowledgebox at work
Project Number 2010-LDV-TOI-507
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Marketing Text ‘My Knowledgebox at Work’ is a project focussed on assisting first line managers to use IT to improve the performance of their employees by creating and applying small items of instruction of direct relevance to their employees. These small items are accessed by the employees using an easy, user-friendly application on a PC
Nowadays, organisations are getting aware of the importance of knowledge management and of the different methodologies of transferring this knowledge towards their employees. There is a demand for concrete, direct hands-on assets providing information about the work processes.
If first line managers have a wide range of assets that are easily transferable towards the employees, employees will seize the opportunity to consult this information in different ways and places. Securing knowledge & transferring it onto the workplace is important, especially when employees are given the opportunity to contribute to that process, by creating knowledge themselves. Thus, more and more knowledge becomes available and it is the first line manager’s responsibility to facilitate this knowledge towards its employees. It is time to enlarge the possibility to learn on the workplace by means of small e-assets, created/advised by the employees themselves and distributed/promoted by the first line managers.
Show/prove/teach first line managers how e-assets can give an added value to secure workplace knowledge and learning
Fine tune the context where it will work and assist them in a first tangeable project.
