Every day, someone, somewhere in your organization finds a new answer to a new problem. Many companies struggle with how to capture this information and share it with the rest of the team. Companies have people talking to customers every day, but don’t always have an easy way to share the results of these interactions. Many times information is shared amongst individual teams. But often it is not shared across all the teams that touch the customer.
For example, Professional Services implementation teams often increase product effectiveness by considering variables in the customer’s environment. However, that acquired knowledge is not often shared to benefit other teams who may encounter the same customer situation. The information obtained may prove to be invaluable when interacting with this customer or future customers with similar environments. Unfortunately, many companies do not have reliable processes to share this valuable data outside of their professional services organization. Or even between Professional Services teams.
