EIS and The New Knowledge Management (TNKM)

EIS helps organizations to enhance their knowledge processing and their ability to learn and adapt. The form of knowledge management we practice is called The New Knowledge Management (TNKM), and over the past 5 years we have been among the few developers and first practitioners of it

TNKM is the basis for EIS's novel consulting and training offerings in KM. Visit our about, consulting, and training pages. There you'll find an entirely novel approach to KM consulting and training that focuses on enhancing all of knowledge processing, not just knowledge sharing, and that uses concepts, tools, techniques, and methodology that promise to revolutionize KM practice.

Continuing competitive advantage is about sustainable problem-solving (innovation), much more than it is about distributing and sharing information that may or may not be knowledge. We support you in developing policies and programs for enhancing the way you produce and integrate knowledge to develop innovative solutions to business problems. To us that's real   knowledge management. More . . .
