Summary:  Knowledge Management Best Practices within Service Management

Knowledge management is an absolute requirement to improve efficiencies and enable an organization to expand its services or deliver different types of services. Yet often it is considered optional, and either not done at all or not done well. Knowledge management is more than just the creation of a knowledge base and the use of a tool – it’s a critical process for capturing the assets of an organization. Through this workshop, you’ll gain a practical understanding of how to properly integrate the capture, structure, and re-use of knowledge into the incident management process so as to improve service effectiveness and efficiency. We’ll discuss the challenges of implementing knowledge management, and how you can successfully get others to support this initiative. 

Key Takeaways

In this session you will…

  • Learn how to capture knowledge in the context of the customer
  • Understand that knowledge must be useable, findable, and structured consistently
  • Discover the dynamic nature of knowledge, and its life-cycle
  • Understand that perfection is neither required nor desirable


You will leave this session with a foundational understanding of best practice methodologies in knowledge management which will allow you to move forward – or improve – a knowledge management program in your organization.
