VEDALIS proposes an innovative approach to T-Shaped* diagnosis and presents its new Social Knowledge Management (SKM) pilot…

*The T-shaped management is a management model that promotes cross sharing and knowledge transfer at all levels of the organization (the horizontal bar of the T), while promoting individual expertise (the vertical bar of the T).

T-shaped management promotes improved competitiveness and performance as it enables organizations to capitalize on the expertise, knowledge and ideas to create value and open up silos.

The more the management system is T-Shaped, the more a company is able to:

  • Make fast and reliable decision making through the exchange of experiences and perspectives
  • Increase operational efficiency through sharing of expertise
  • Improve productivity through the transfer of expertise and best practices
  • Develop new opportunities through the dissemination of ideas and solutions

For Didier PLEGAT, VEDALIS CEO,Social Knowledge Management, three words that challenge companies. On the one hand, they refer to concepts and intangible benefits: knowledge capital development, innovation management, organization and collaborative networks. Far from the short term, tangible and measurable benefits. On the other side, they reflect what analysts confirm through their studies and their recommendations: knowledge networks created between sites, departments… are key factors for progress and competitiveness. In other words, on one side, uncertainties and risks relating to changes, on the other, promises of success and encouragement to action. In this context, the role of VEDALIS is to create bridges between strategy and operations, principles and applications, willingness and ability to do things. We are working tirelessly as shown in the availability of our new tools for the diagnosis and T-Shaped Social KM pilot. Both effective and easy to handle, they provide practical solutions to company problems in the study phase, design and framing of their Social Knowledge Management projects
