Capture and Share Firm Expertise


BUSINESS TIPS
In a recent CCH survey, accounting firms associated several benefits with having formal knowledge management programs, such as an increase in efficiency (76%), productivity (63%) and revenue (62%) and an improvement in client service (69%). These firms were also more likely to follow other management best practices, including:

Using a database for knowledge sharing

Conducting regularly scheduled training on knowledge management systems

Deploying supporting technology to further knowledge initiatives


The survey found, however, that only 36% of firms have established these programs. In them, firms are compiling specialized subject area information and legislative and regulatory knowledge in a centralized repository. Though not as common, these repositories are also used to analyze growth opportunities and gather industry intelligence.
