Knowledge ManagementIncreasingly, products and services are becoming ‘smarter’ and more knowledge-based due to a host of technological and social developments. To effectively manage ever-increasing amounts of information, we know that knowledge management (KM) -- a multidisciplinary process of creating, sharing, using, and managing knowledge and information -- is the only way to ensure that best-practices and lessons learned are effectively documented and widely shared.
JSI has a long history of conceptualizing, building, and managing knowledge management solutions across a number of technical areas ranging from HIV&AIDS, nutrition, supply chains, and community-based health systems strengthening. JSI uses human-centered design to develop complementary technology solutions such as secure, user-focused web platforms that are responsive and optimized to perform in low-bandwidth environments, mobile applications, and e-learning modules, to make knowledge more accessible for the intended users. JSI can help:
- Develop and manage large-scale branded projects, including support for platform design, messaging, collateral production, publications, and dissemination activities.
- Build partnerships with local organizations to promote better use and packaging of data to influence decisionmaking.
- Employ new techniques, such as community videos, to facilitate knowledge sharing for behavior change within communities.
- Manage communities of practice to encourage knowledge sharing among global professionals.
