KCS Practice 4: Improve

Techniques for KCS® Practice 4 are based on the goal to constantly improve articles as they are reused.

KCS Practice 4 Techniques

Articles with the most demand, and therefore value, have the most opportunity to meet evolving user needs.

Technique 4.1: Reuse is Review

Reference the content captured in your central repository (your knowledge base) in every interaction to regularly improve the most important content. Through process integration and collective ownership, your knowledge base becomes the most comprehensive and current source of knowledge.

Technique 4.2: Flag it or Fix it

As KCS articles are used, they are continually updated for ongoing improvement. Quick fixes are updated immediately while issues needing more attention are flagged to trigger a workflow.

Technique 4.3: License to Modify

Content permissions, part of the KCS licensing model, are an important capability to allow all your knowledge workers to participate while only certain knowledge workers are granted higher privileges when appropriate.
