Work Groups and Project Teams

WORK GROUPS; PROJECT TEAMS; 

Work groups and project teams share similar needs to connect individuals together and combine their knowledge and activities in a coordinated and collaborative manner to accomplish defined goals.  In these situations DyKIDo! based solutions can help capture and harness the collective knowledge of a community and coordinate work activities and tasks. 

In today’s connected world, knowledge is much more than the raw information you personally assimilate. Knowledge comes from experience in applying information to solve real world problems and this experience need not be your own.  As an example, consider a common use of the Internet today is to seek other with a similar problem or need and then learn what they did and their level of satisfaction with the results.  Such information can range anywhere from ratings on restaurant’s, movies, and appliances, to how to do home and automotive repairs, to even treatment options for complex health issues.  All of these are examples of collective knowledge in action.

DyKIDo! based solutions are designed to build collective information pools and individual connections around any topic of shared interest. Raw information can be uploaded in the form of Internet links, documents, power point slides, videos, conference notes, book recommendations, and even individually written articles. Other members can then post comments about their own experiences and perspectives on this information. Members can also rate the information as well as other member postings in regards to value and contribution. Discussion forums allow individual to post questions about problems or carry on discussions about specific topics. Document libraries contain master versions and allow group dissemination with notification of version changes, as well as support for group editing of documents. Task lists and project trackers support collection of activities, assignment to individuals, and tracking of progress toward results.   

In these situations, DyKIDo! based solutions:

·       Bring together multiple perspectives and expertise.
·       Encourage collective learning.
·       Allow for more effective use of resources
·       Foster a higher level of commitment to action
·       Facilitate and accelerate group problem solving and decision-making.
·       Track task assignments and progress.
·       Support collaborative document creation with version control.
·       Serves as the repository of all project related information. 
 
These type of capabilities are traditionally limited to organizations with an IT support staff or with sufficient funding to support custom development of feature rich systems. However, our open-source based DyKIDo! platform puts this level of functionality into the hands of smaller project groups and teams, providing affordable, fully supported solutions, customized to specific needs. The result is a high value project website that is created and maintained with minimal cost and effort.
