Informationland has developed a taxonomy based knowledge map that makes organisations transparent. This methodology has led to significant improvements in efficiency and innovation in knowledge-intensive and complex organisations. Experiences within many industries show that a knowledge map itself never holds knowledge , but only refers to the location (person, document, project, process) where the knowledge can be found.
The most successful knowledge maps are based on a tree-shaped knowledge structure, a taxonomy, with branches and tags based on activities and specialisations. For example, each employee is associated with a combination of labels that are applicable to him or her (experience, specialization, training etc.). The main benefit of using the knowledge map is a dramatic improvement of the organisational transparency, across specialisations and locations. A reply from a knowledge map often shows short list of experienced colleagues from various backgrounds of disciplines that have dealt in the past with the same combination of factors or experiences.
The advantages of using knowledge maps can often be found in the following areas:
