Knowledge is defined as an acquaintance or familiarity gained by sight, experience, or report. Think of how much knowledge your supply chain has on processes, product design and operations that you may not be leveraging effectively. So how do you harness the collective knowledge of your supply chain?
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts
End to end, the supply chain is a massive entity with countless moving parts. The sheer nature of the supply chain makes it inherently difficult to coordinate, collaborate and learn. Here are 5 ways you can gather this dispersed insight with social learning:
1. Speed up communication with your partners, suppliers, resellers, manufacturers and retailers
2. Capture and retain best practices and insights on process improvements
3. Rapidly deploying training programs online reduces training costs
4. Collaborate instantly and securely with your extended enterprise
5. Connect directly with your customers so you can keep them informed
The virtual water cooler
Providing an online space where the varying parties of your supply chain can congregate, share ideas, and learn collectively is like having a virtual water cooler. A secure one at that! When internal and external parties can collaborate and connect without boundaries, productivity happens. Social learning can be so much more than a website you go to take training. The possibilities are endless.
