Soliciting knowledge requirements in an organization: Developing a catalog of metrics and identifying recommendations (in cooperation with DMI.de)

The structured capturing/ soliciting of knowledge requirements in an organization is essential for the continuous development and management of knowledge in a company.

In the context of this thesis work, based on a well-founded review, possible approaches for the identification of knowledge requirements and their measurement will be identified. Building on this, a structured catalog of metrics and indicators will be developed, tested in practice and used to derived recommendations.

This topic involves field work in German.
