Knowledge Management is the process through which an enterprise leverages its collective intellectual capital and associated processes to meet the strategic goals of the organization, and to create competitive advantage for the enterprise.
How can an organization use its collective intelligence to achieve mission success? Organizations are losing institutional memory due to a constantly changing workforce characterized by high job mobility, organizational restructuring and demographic shift from older to younger workers. Critical mission information is often trapped within segregated functional stovepipes and enterprise-level integration is prevented by non-interoperable data systems. Harried executives are drowning in data but no business intelligence and no sense of how to use this data to make effective strategic decisions. Managers are confronted with recalcitrant employees who are unwilling to share information that is needed in other parts of the organization. The best practices and lessons learned in one part of the institution are not shared in a systematic way to help other parts of the institution. Knowledge is power … but what is this knowledge, where can we find it, how do we share it and how can we manage it?
KAI’s Knowledge Management (KM) framework creates innovative solutions for our clients that enable information and knowledge to be shared, and to create value. Our KM framework helps develop and manage processes to get the right knowledge to the right people at the right time and help people share and act on information in order to improve organizational performance and achieve mission success. KAI’s Knowledge Management framework emphasizes a repeatable process which is tailored to our customer’s requirements. It is a set of tools and processes used by “knowledge workers” in an architected environment, created through an enterprise initiative to obtain maximum returns from data, information, intelligence and knowledge.

These principles are interwoven throughout the client solutions that KAI has deployed in our three dimensions of excellence: People, Processes and Technology.
