Use knowledge of people in companies successfully in our company huge amounts of unused knowledge slumber. But rigid systems prevent the use of this potential. So is the knowledge transfer usually between superiors and employees, old and young especially about the material and professional level. If company limited, the potential remains unexploited. This is a success factor for the future”the existing knowledge for the use of growth and cost-cutting potential, says of the Ratinger Economist Ralf Overbeck, which supports the company as coach and lecturer in corresponding changes. Only if a company was aware what scope and value has the internal knowledge, it could employ his skills efficiently and selectively for a sustainable competitive advantage.
Knowledge management systems open up new ways to share knowledge so Overbeck modelled on social networks. The Fraunhofer Institute for industrial engineering has 2010 in one of numerous studies found that Knowledge management”is crucial for the future of the company. You must use the knowledge of its employees, customers and partners, and link together to make innovations. Connected with the development trends of Web 2.0 “, or appropriate Internet networks it comes to the concept of knowledge management 2.0”. It meant, that employees are active. They make their knowledge available, produce it themselves according to market principles (supply/demand) rather than the centrally predefined subject lines. However, setting up and operating this social software”is highly dependent on the involvement of employees.
Experience shows that many projects fail precisely because”, says Ralf Overbeck. To influence people positively to their knowledge in the service of the company, appropriate incentives must be offered. We come on the knowledge in the minds of the people only on their belly”says Overbeck and calls for a high level of participation of employees in all divisions. Important in: The people determine the speed itself, the order in which of the topics will be individually tailored. The common way is the goal. People have to report about their positive and negative experiences, projects, and solutions. Stands at the end the common deciding which is the best for the future. ” As knowledge-based information systems can, be, made with technical support, which make an important contribution to the knowledge management in companies. With them, the enormous amounts of data, information and knowledge can be save, organize, find and replace. Spatial distances lose by social software”in importance. Information can be obtained more quickly, and business partners are often surprised due to the possible use of these results.
