053: Increasing Knowledge Management While Working Remotely 


On today’s episode, Thom Singer and Craig Brown welcome Jeff Moffa, President of Auros Knowledge Systems, to discuss the importance of knowledge management in every industry.  Jeff highlights the value of effective knowledge management, the importance of effective provision mechanisms and contextual value, and defines the role of active knowledge in the ever-changing digital world.  He also highlights the benefits of the changes have come as a result of the COVID-19 required need to work remotely.  

On today’s podcast, you will learn:

The value of knowledge management

  • Knowledge management refers to the need and ability to capture, share, and reuse knowledge in productive ways

  • Capturing and indexing knowledge is best done while communicating with others during processes

  • Provision mechanisms offer the greatest opportunity to capture knowledge 

  • Contextual value can vary based on time frames, situational usage, and assembly

  • Provision knowledge refers to obtaining only the information you need to know, precisely when you need to know it

  • Industries that benefit from provisioning knowledge include software, automotive, financial, and other non-mechanical workflows

Understanding the role of active knowledge

  • Do active knowledge-based machines need human assistance in order to perform properly?

  • Various digital tools are becoming more and more model-based

  • The application and implementation of active knowledge will only continue to increase over the years

Industry changes resulting from COVID-19

  • Company leaders need to know that knowledge has not been applied as effectively as it could be 

  • COVID-19 has given people an opportunity to examine whether there is a need for the next level of variation and change that companies are often pushing for

  • More is not always better — companies might actually benefit from reducing their competition

  • Many companies in the building industry can easily thrive at a distance thanks to online collaboration technology
