Knowledge management drives innovationVinita Gupta finds out how a company can foster a supportive culture, and strengthen the link between knowledge management, innovation and organisational growth.Knowledge Management (KM) comprises a range of practices imbibed within an organisation which identify, create, archive and distribute knowledge for awareness and learning. These practices orprogrammes while aligned with the organisational objectives are intended to lead to the achievement of specific outcomes, such as shared intelligence, improved performance, competitive advantage, and higher levels of innovation.

At Xansa, the KM practice is divided into development and support divisions. In both the sectors, innovation is the primary objective. In these sectors KM acts as a repository of key practice and technological knowledge. Thisrepository serves as a foundation to the requirements of other projects. Teams can value-add on the existing knowledge instead of having to spend time and energies in already existent solutions. The instances of errors and bugs reduce considerably as KM acts as an archive of successful past projects, and this helps teams to innovate while creating solutions for the clients.
