Knowledge Management is the process of identifying, organizing, storing and reusing information within an organization.
Companies with a knowledge management strategy achieve business outcomes more quickly as increased organizational learning and collaboration among team members facilitates faster decision-making across the business.
Overwhelmingly, the majority of organizations are hierarchal with 15% of their knowledge is explicit knowledge and 85% is non-captured tacit knowledge. However, Process driven organizations provide 85% tacit knowledge and 15% explicit knowledge.
Areopa streamlines organizational processes, such as training and on-boarding leading to higher employee satisfaction and retention. Our practical approach of successive steps results in identifying, capturing and making re-usable, tacit knowledge.
Areopa has developed a new model to help support SMEs including start-ups to grow faster.
Usually, SMEs need capital to grow. Equity investments are not attractive for many SMEs as it dilutes their ownership share. The alternative is taking a loan, but banks are usually not very eager in giving these loans because of the relatively high risk of the SAP failing to pay back the loan plus interest.
Areopa supports Strategic Alliance Partners (SAPs) in getting the loans from banks by doing a due diligence (DD)analysis and making a high-level estimation (HLE) whereby the value of the SAP can increase for the loan based on their intellectual capital. Areopa has developed an extensive tool set to do this.
Areopa will set-up the Intellectual Capital Loan Guarantee Fund that guarantees the loans to the banks in case of failure of an SAP. In addition, Areopa will support the SAPs in their growth efforts by providing a Knowledge Manager (KMI) to the SAP, so that the risk of failure is significantly reduced.
Our economies are moving from the industrial era to a knowledge driven era.
Areopa’s vision focuses on structuring innovation on a regional and country level.
Knowledge companies can be created, startups can be guided in setting up organization structures, creating money streams based on the created intellectual capital assets, financed, controlled and managed.
An Intellectual Capital Centers are the awareness service of The Areopa Group. The Areopa Group assists governments, grant and policies makers, and businesses to gain a competitive advantage by sharing the understanding of how to manage their intellectual capital resources. This is accomplished through a series of workshops, seminars, conferences, webinars and business sector meetings.
IC Centers help SAPs and NGOs and others to manage and understand their IC including IPR to increase the value of their companies by both placing it on the balance sheet or on the P&L and giving them the tools to value it internally.
It will also enable the companies to manage their complexity and gain a better understanding how combinations of IC and other assets can both enable new product and service delivery or existing product and service improvement.
In any Company, processes must be continuously improved and renewed, in order to keep the competitiveness. Even when things seem to go right, the Company should embrace a continuous improvement and change methodology.
In fact, this is the base of (digital) transformation. It is not uploading to the cloud what we are currently doing, but to rethink the way we are doing it… and then use the technology (whatever it is needed) to improve the speed, scope, reach or quality of service.
Through process mapping, risk identification and cyber risk assessment methodologies, The Areopa Group provides a process based approach to risk analysis.
