Active Knowledge, LLC consultants help public and private organizations implement knowledge management (KM) programs that directly support mission-critical processes. Our logo, also depicted as <, is the letter K (Kenaz) from the Elder Futhark runic alphabet meaning "Torch," and symbolizes the acquisition and application of knowledge. Like a torch, Kenaz can be passed to another without the original holder losing knowledge. Active knowledge flows.
Why outcomes-driven knowledge management? Too often, KM programs are implemented without any real expectation of their influence on the organization's core processes or bottom line. These programs ultimately fail from want of use, as employees resent the time investment for no perceived added value. Industry best practices require KM initiatives to be measurable and show a return on investment. Quantifying outcomes is vital to ensuring continued executive sponsorship, shifting cultural paradigms, and demonstrating ROI.
