We leveraged WordPress to develop a comprehensive Learning Ecosystem, spanning multiple types of content and interactions. </p><p>Results: The tool has quickly been adopted and has widespread support for iterative improvements, guided by strong change management and governance plans. </p><p>KEY SUCCESS FACTORS User Engagement: The site replaced over 20 existing sites full of content. User buy-in was critical. We leveraged workshops from the outset to capture user feedback and design iteratively. </p><p>Change Management: EK used our workshops to create a dialogue with NPS staff so that they feel part of the process. </p><p>Measurable Success Criteria: Each area of the project has measurable success criteria to keep the project focused on the business needs. These measures also allow NPS to communicate the value of the new system. </p></li><li><p>WORLD BANK </p><p>Challenge: The World Bank Knowledge Exchange Group was seeking a lightweight Knowledge Management System (KMS) that could be deployed for government agencies with minimal burden and maximum customization. </p><p>Solution: EK developed a workshop methodology to capture design requirements while conducting knowledge transfer and encouraging adoption alongside a cloud-based, open source solution. </p><p>Results: Over the last year, EK has conducted workshops for eight agencies and deployed five instances of the KMS. Organizations including BNPB (Indonesia), NACO (India), and SBM (India) now have a simple tool to share knowledge and connect with experts. </p><p>KEY SUCCESS FACTORS Agile Development: The template system was developed in three sprints (total of 11 weeks). Each subsequent system is developed over two sprints. </p><p>Focused Functionality: The core system includes document uploading, tagging, expert profiles, favorites, and social interaction. </p><p>Open Source Technology: The underlying technology is Alfresco. The system is designed for minimal administrative burden, but allows for customization and personalization. </p></li><li><p>QUESTIONS? </p><p>HTTPS://WWW.LINKEDIN.COM/IN/ZACHARYWAHL </p><p>@ZACHARYWAHL, @EKCONSULTING </p><p>571-403-1109 </p><p>ZWAHL@ENTERPRISE-KNOWLEDGE.COM </p></li></ul>
