Knowledge maturing offers a new perspective on how knowledge, learning, and innovation takes place within an organization. Lack of new innovative products, lack of transfer from web 2.0 discussion results into product improvements, diiminishing competitive advantage and not meeting shareholder expectations can all be symptoms of dysfunctional knowledge processes. The knowledge maturing perspective allows to analyze specific problem situations and pin down company specific focus areas that need improvement.

When to apply?

If collaboration within your organization does not work properly, if idea management does not yield sufficient innovation, if interesting ideas get stuck along the way to its implementation, your company requires an analysis of your knowledge processes.
