Adding Knowledge Management to the CBMSc practice

Knowledge Associates and CBMSc announce partnership for an integrated, strategy and knowledge asset management service to accelerate business improvement.

A New Approach that integrates Strategy, Process Design and Knowledge Management at a deeper level to help businesses achieve sustainable results faster, better and at a lower cost

Cambridge, UK 17 April 2018.

Knowledge Associates International Ltd. and Cambridge Management Sciences Ltd today announced a new business performance improvement service. Through a new partnership, they are able to offer an organisational improvement framework to increase productivity from intangible assets and ensure compliance with new developments in international standards.

This partnership uniquely combines the experience and capability of two innovative Cambridge companies.  Together they provide a comprehensive consultancy and development service designed to help organisations achieve, sustain and extend their strategic goals though deeply aligned, optimised and integrated processes, systems, people and knowledge tools.

The importance of formulating the right strategy and being able to deliver it at speed continues to grow.  External changes are outpacing the ability of organisations to innovate quickly enough to keep pace.  Responding effectively to these challenges, combined with the critical need to get the best value from both tangible and intangible assets, is difficult for many organisations.CBMSc Knowledge Associates partnership

This new solution enables clients to achieve strategic alignment with embedded knowledge management so that their business model and strategy can evolve in a sustainable way.  The key elements of the combined offering include:

  • Strategy Evaluation: professionals will assess interested customers’ current corporate and business strategies and recommend ways to improve them.
  • Common Business Components: evaluation of the current design, specification and implementation of the operations plans, process designs, systems architecture and key governance and management responsibilities including risk and performance.
  • Knowledge Asset Management: identifying, developing and managing a strategic portfolio of critical knowledge assets.

“Empirical research shows a clear link between effective knowledge asset management and the achievement of strategic goals,” said Steve McGrady, CBMSc’s Managing Director.  “Through this new partnership with our Cambridge neighbours, we are able to combine their Knowledge Asset Management methodology (KAM) with our Strategy to Results Method (StoRM) to provide even more value to our clients”

Says Ron Young, CEO and CKO of Knowledge Associates Cambridge, “There is no doubt in our minds that those organisations that manage their knowledge assets wisely will dominate the 21stcentury.  This can best be achieved by combining a comprehensive Strategy to Results process with effective Knowledge Management .“

Both organisations declare “We are pleased to be able to extend our capability together as we anticipate the imminent publication of new Global Standards for Knowledge Management and Innovation”
