An organization's knowledge capital is its competitive edge.

Summary: An organization's knowledge
capital is its competitive edge.
Generating Value Through Knowledge
The knowledge-based economy represents a conundrum.
While most organizations recognize the value of knowledge, they struggle to "know what they know", what they need to know, and how
to operationalize knowledge by transforming it into action. Generating value through knowledge is a daunting task. It requires a new way of
looking at organizations, strategy, structure, people and competition. But when you take the time to get it right, the rewards are substantial ­
"nimble"organizations creating new products, services, and organizational structures. Our express purpose atThe Monieson Centre is to enable
organizations to turn knowledge into value. We accomplish this via an innovative research model, working in partnership with organizations
to discover how to harness and drive the power of knowledge.
Recognized for our novel approach to research, we utilize a collaborative, multi-discipline, multi-university, "double-hurdle" research
model. "Double hurdle"describes research that upholds the standards of academic rigour with results that are pertinent to practitioners. This
model organizes teams of top international researchers to focus on the complex issues of our partner organizations. The Monieson Centre's
team of professionals manages these research projects, shares new knowledge with others through academic and practitioner channels, and
assists our organizational partners in effectively transforming knowledge into practice. By bridging the gap between business theory and
practice, The Monieson Centre is fast becoming the pre-eminent research centre focused on knowledge in organizations.
An organization's knowledge capital is its competitive edge ­ whether it be a consulting firm, a car manufacturer or a hospital. The Monieson
Centre works with organizations to discover how they can enhance their capabilities ­ how to generate value through knowledge.
Make no mistake. The Monieson Centre
