Knowledge Management Strategy
Almost every high-tech or knowledge intensive organization faces challenges in knowledge retention, easy and timely access to information and knowledge resources, adoption of experience and new trends in organizational practice. Developing a sound comprehensive strategy on knowledge management ensures a strong linkage between organizational goals and business objectives and the practical implementation of projects and solutions. NKMI helps to develop a fully tailored and individual needs driven strategy for managing organizational knowledge. NKMI combines both the top-down and bottom-up approaches, which connects a well formulated overarching goals, strategy to the day-to-day work and implementation.
Overcoming Knowledge Loss
One of the seriouse challenges for many established technology and service organizations today is overcoming the problem of an ageing workforce, shorter employment cycles, and consequently a potential loss of knowledge. NKMI uses a comprehensive methodology to 1. identify critical knowledge in an organization, 2. to assess the risk of loosing the critical knowledge, 3. to formulate actions for reducing or mitigating the risk and 4. to help in implementing the actions.
Finding suitable ICT Solution
Organizations often apply first available or known knowledge management and ICT solutions without considering their overall vision, mission and goals. NKMI helps to develop systems and technologies to enable optimal knowledge and information sharing and use. We support implementation of projects and give advice on information management.
Monitoring and evaluation of knowledge management
Monitoring and evaluation of knowledge management (KM) helps organization to better understand the effects of KM and enables them to successfully manage their KM projects. Although this seems straightforward, monitoring and evaluation of KM is not a common practice. NKMI applies an advanced technology and software to assess maturity of knowledge management initiatives. We help organizations to formulate the right indicators and find the appropriate methods to monitor and evaluate simple and complex KM initiatives.
VIENNA INTERNATIONAL NUCLEAR COMPETENCE CENTRE INITIATIVE
In the last years, the members of VINCC (Vienna International Nuclear Competence Centre), the KM-A (Knowledge Management Academy) and NKMI have developed an easy to understand and easy to use approach to integral knowledge management. The approach is focused on knowledge intensive organizations, networks and companies who are parts of a larger knowledge system.
The VINCC is a knowledge network and a cluster of competences embodied in industrial and scientific organizations who nuclear development for peaceful, safe, secure and competitive applications. Its main objective is to provide nuclear competence and nuclear infrastructure support.
VINCC is a network made “by the companies for the companies” with the specific intent to promote and to create an integrated supply chain in different segments of nuclear technology, and to aggregate competence of small and medium sized enterprises.
It is aimed at consolidating and capturing the actual and future technical expertise thanks also to the cooperation with research centres and universities specialized in nuclear education, training and R&D.
VINCC is a cluster promoted and supported by important firms, leaders in the nuclear field, recognized as a supplier of excellence, providing quality services and products. It is initiated, hosted and facilitated by the NKMI.
The main objective of VINCC as an initiative is to serve its member organisations and their customers to grow, cluster and market competence. It aims at developing synergy and catalyse knowledge and innovation.
