Knowledge Mapping Mega Pattern & Trend  - Unleashing Revolutionizing Technologies   


Our continuously improving knowledge of  the patterns above, from the  Computer Microchip, the Human Genome, the DNA Double Helix,  Nanotechnology, and Satellite Imagery,  will play a growing role in our lives going forward. We live and work increasingly in a knowledge-driven economy. But what about the patterns that relate to knowledge itself ?

We believe that the ability to identify, interpret, imagine, intuit, instruct, and intervene using Knowledge Pattern Recognition, is a fundamental competency for achieving success in the knowledge game.

We have therefore been carrying out independent research into the collation and understanding of winning knowledge patterns for some time.

We now have developed a toolkit to support our :- Knowledge Assessment & Strategy Consulting Services.
In providing this service we are able to offer our clients rapid, cost efficient, strategic auditing and assessment of their organization's knowledge capabilities, knowledge gaps, and level of readiness for transformation to a more knowledge 
driven enterprise.

Our work is based on combining  timeless principles and simple common sense, with next-generation advanced knowledge pattern concepts.

Fluency and Agility with Knowledge Pattern Recognition capabilities can ultimately be highly Profitable.

Our White Paper

We have prepared a White Paper that describes our thinking about the importance of Knowledge Pattern Recognition

Abstract :  

Pattern Recognition has proven to be a powerful tool in many disciplines. It is useful as an interpretive, communication, and explanatory heuristic. In the knowledge management field to-date, there is hardy any focus on knowledge patterns. An argument is made for a deeper appreciation of the potential usefulness of knowledge pattern recognition. An attempt is made to develop a working taxonomy of knowledge patterns.  The resulting array of available knowledge patterns, then provides a basis for developing strategy, conducting audits, making adept decisions, and as a guide to raising the bar on smart knowledge performance. Knowledge pattern recognition should become an ever more critical skill-set and core competency, as the knowledge based economy advances.
