Knowledge Harvesting / Exchange


Knowledge Harvesting is a structured approach to help an organisation understand and record the knowledge and experience of people, often before they leave or move roles. The different ways to capture this are explained by the Department of Health Informatics Directorate, who have also developed a template as a self-harvesting tool.

Karen Pile at a KM Conference in 2009 put forward the case for knowledge harvesting to be a continuous process and not just when staff are leaving.

South East Coast NHS have produced a number of eLearning programmes, where they discuss key aspects of utilising knowledge assets.
