Connecting our people to an accurate, single source of knowledge first time, every time.
Knowledge Management (KM) is the creation, socialisation, use of and curation of knowledge. This is achieved by taking complex information and producing simplified knowledge.
KM enhances business performance, productivity, speed to competency, as well as providing a competitive edge and driving innovation.
Outcomes and Benefits
- Single source of knowledge leading to improved decision making
- Industry leading solution that enhances employee retention, engagement and performance
- Designed for government, co-designed with agency partners, delivers better customer experiences
- Easily accessible repository of information with full integration into core and common platforms
Our vision is to establish a culture of knowledge sharing that enables and enhances the interactions between government and the people of NSW
We are creating a simple, easy to use single source of truth across the whole of government that is a world-class solution accessible for frontline teams and optimises processes in the back end. A platform that works across all customer facing touch points so that we provide and access the right information at the right time and in the right format.
Difference between knowledge management and documentation management
Our KM team works side by side with our partners (USU and Customer Driven) to migrate existing knowledge platforms and information repositories to a single source of truth enabling us to develop, implement, and optimise behaviours and data-driven strategies. Through the process we identify the content which can be improved through applying best practice Customer Experience principals and provide ongoing operational guidance and support as required.
The Knowledge Management Community of Excellence (KMCoE)
The purpose of a KM CoE is to serve as a hub for KM activities, resources, and expertise, and to facilitate the development and implementation of effective strategies and practices throughout the organization.
The purpose of a KMCoE is to serve as a hub for KM activities, resources, and expertise, and to facilitate the development and implementation of effective strategies and practices throughout the organization.
Overall, a KMCoE plays a critical role in helping organizations leverage their collective knowledge and expertise to achieve their strategic objectives and stay competitive in a rapidly changing business environment. By aligning a KMCoE with ISO standards, we ensure that all of our Government NSW knowledge management practices are consistent with globally recognized standards for quality management, information security, and knowledge management.
The CoE can help define the organization's goals and objectives for KM and its integration into the vision, strategy and mission of each business unit, and develop a roadmap for achieving them.
The CoE offers training programs and support resources to help employees develop the skills and knowledge needed to effectively manage knowledge and provide world class customer centric service interactions.
The CoE can help identify and implement tools and processes that support knowledge management, such as knowledge repositories, search engines, and collaboration platforms. The CoE also provides technology improvement road mapping to ensure the solution is at the forefront of the needs of the users.
The CoE fosters a culture sharing and collaboration within the organization by developing communities of practice, facilitating knowledge exchange events, and promoting best practices for sharing knowledge.
The CoE can monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of KM initiatives and use data and analytics to continuously improve knowledge management practices.
There are several ISO standards related to knowledge management, including ISO 9001 (Quality Management), ISO 27001 (Information Security Management), and ISO 30401 (Knowledge Management).
The CoE team will co-develop a strategy that aligns with the relevant ISO standards. This involves defining policies and procedures for knowledge management, establishing metrics and measurement systems, including auditing, and developing a culture of continuous improvement.
The team will design and implement a framework for managing knowledge that aligns with the relevant ISO standards and reimagine frameworks as it pertains to industry best practices for Knowledge Management. This involves developing processes for capturing and storing knowledge, establishing communities of practice for sharing knowledge, and using technology to support knowledge management.
