Why it matters to you?
The current state of knowledge sharing inside a company and among the network of external partners, employees, and customers, is poor. It is something that every business needs to do, both for the sake of consistency in messaging, pushing new products to market, and sales enablement, yet paradoxically, it is still something that is not prioritised.
All stakeholders, both employees, franchisees, distributors, partners, and even customers require on-demand strategy-, product- and sales material that can be consumed at their convenience in an engaging way. That is not status quo.
The hybrid environment adds considerable pressure to omni-channel orchestration. While data and insights can guide channel and content mix decisions, the right input enriches the model. which means that you have to 'open up' and be on-demand.
To ensure that they’re protecting the right experience, firms should implement a continuation of channel training and development that focuses on enabling business partners, employees, and customers to embrace digital capabilities and understand continuously evolving engagement models.

Top challenge is
providing 'real value'
Knowledge sharing are typically often static, have legacy user interfaces, and leaves the users frustrated and confused. Moreover, the content is oftentimes non-personalised and 10+ clicks is required to get to one piece of content. When business-critical knowledge sharing, for instance clinical data, product usage directives, or even a staff handbook, is built into a general-purpose systems, it forces users into linear content consumption and when users are pressed for time, they're struggling to stay up to date.
In an ever-changing and hyper-connected world, the amount of information has increased exponentially. Combine this with the fact that traveling to conferences has become less appealing in a post-COVID world, then you have a future look into what effective knowledge sharing looks like.
There's a disconnect between desired and actual content delivery. Companies must reassess content assumptions, bridge the gaps, and deliver partners' desired content in their preferred format, time, and location.
Companies should develop focused campaigns tailored to their stakeholders, emphasising segmentation and targeting. To achieve this, a robust data infrastructure is necessary, enabling a deeper understanding of evolving stakeholder preferences, channel dynamics, and content relevance. This understanding can be leveraged to predict and meet customers' and employees' evolving desires and requirements effectively. Additionally, adopting a 'customer experience' planning framework can help mitigate risks arising from external factors. Companies should shift spending away from their own preferences and towards better-performing on-demand channels.
The challenge lies in the fact that virtual events lack the valuable in-person networking opportunities offered by on-site meetings. Hence, efforts should be directed towards crafting improved engagement models that cater to both virtual and hybrid events, ensuring enhanced participant involvement across all event types.
Leading companies are beginning to increase content re-use, lower incremental costs, and reduce overall compliance risk.
