The International Knowledge Aware Association (IKAA) has a mission to assist individuals and organizations in transforming through Knowledge Aware concepts.
The International Knowledge Aware Association (IKAA) is founded on the premise that there is transformative value in unlocking enterprise knowledge. A confluence of new technology reveals a shift from knowledge as a passive reference asset into an active influencer integrated into the flow-of-work. In this new paradigm for managing knowledge, processes become ‘aware’ of and react with the continuously evolving, enterprise-wide base of knowledge. Collectively we call the ideas and techniques that assist us in reaching this objective ‘Knowledge Aware.’
A Letter From Jeff Moffa, IKAA Board Member and President of Auros Knowledge Systems
As one of the founding board members, I am proud to introduce the International Knowledge Aware Association (IKAA) to organizations around the globe. The IKAA was formed to assist in the transformation of organizations and individuals through Knowledge Aware concepts. Knowledge Aware concepts have proven to be powerful, yet they remain rooted in the simple premises that knowledge can and should be retained digitally, and most importantly, must be activated from within the everyday flow-of-work.
I am passionate about the transformational capability of Knowledge Aware because I have experienced it firsthand. Not only have I seen transformation at large, well known and esteemed companies, but I’ve also experienced it at my own company, Auros Knowledge Systems. At Auros, we have applied Knowledge Aware concepts to every aspect of our business… from our software development factory, to our consulting business, and even to our HR disciplines like our hiring practices… The Knowledge Aware technique has truly enabled Auros to be an effective, efficient, and knowledge enabled company.
The Knowledge Aware approach is proving itself every day by producing competitive advantage at organizations across the globe. Through Knowledge Aware concepts, adopting organizations have realized increases in productivity, more consistent multi-location processes and techniques, and increased retention and reuse of technical knowledge.
As you may be able to tell, I believe in the inevitability of the Knowledge Aware approach. Momentum is building, and word is spreading. As your organization begins to consider the adoption of Knowledge Aware concepts, you may find IKAA offerings helpful: educational webinars, community forums, conferences, and networking groups. I encourage you to join IKAA today and I ask for your help in accelerating the progress toward the Knowledge Aware future.
