KCS Practice 2: Structure

Techniques for KCS® Practice 2 encourage a simple article structure.

KCS Practice 2 Techniques

Record information in a consistent format for efficient knowledge-capture that improves readability and findability.

Technique 2.1: Use a Simple Template

A template ensures a consistent article format that includes all information needed for a high-quality KCS article. Capture at the beginning of the interaction to get the most accurate context.

Technique 2.2: Complete Thoughts, Not Complete Sentences

KCS is designed to guide authors to work in a different way that enables efficient knowledge capture. Implemented properly, resolvers do not take on additional work, but work in a way that easily contributes to shared knowledge. Responders capture at or near the point of interaction and take notes as they work on a request.
