Knowledge Management

An organization’s intellectual capital – its collective knowledge and experience – is its most valuable and invisible asset. This means that locating and retaining knowledge workers is the single most important challenge for any company competing in the changing environment. Why?
Knowledge capital is often untapped capital because it resides entirely within the people of the organization who are connected in invisible “informal” networks.

NetForm provides a range of products and services that allows your organization to visualize and diagnose the informal networks and thereby leverage the human knowledge capital embedded in those networks for a  variety of strategic initiatives.

Since business is only as good as its next idea, executives and managers must methodically, efficiently and strategically mine knowledge capital  to guide innovation. Our methodology tells them what actions and it what order those actions are to be taken to close the gap between the present (as is) and future (should be) states.
