A Knowledge Market is a meeting to match up people who need learning, with people who can provide their learning. Knowledge Markets are commonly used within Communities of Practice
The purpose of a Knowledge Market is to connect people who have problems with those that can potentially solve the problems. It connects knowledge supply to knowledge need, to stimulate knowledge transfer, make new connections, and identify new collaborative relationships.
Knoco will work with you to introduce Knowledge markets into your organisation. We help plan and facilitate the market, and design the follow-up processes to exchange (and, if needed, document) the knowledge area "matches" which have been identified at the market itself.
The benefit of the Knowledge Market is that it makes knowledge demand and knowledge supply visible and public, so that opportunities for knowledge sharing can be identified for follow-up.
