Delft Cluster has as a long-term ambition to become one of the leading knowledge centres focusing on the sustainable development of densely populated areas.
In this light Delft Cluster (DC), as a network organization, needs to establish a common Corporate Knowledge Platform (CKP). The ultimate goal of the DC-CKP is that of providing immediate access to a range of available (tacit and explicit) knowledge, resources and applications (products of all DC themes and basis projects), and knowledge sharing and collaborative working facilities on a corporate DC level.
In order to achieve this goal it is well recognised that the development and implementation of a Corporate Knowledge Map is of the utmost importance.
The main purpose of the Delft Cluster Corporate Knowledge Map is to serve as a navigation aid to explicit (codified) and tacit information and knowledge, showing the importance and relationships between the knowledge objects and dynamics.
The Corporate Knowledge Map will be designed to meet the needs of all users, external (DC sector) as well as internal (DC organisations). Whereas it is impossible to anticipate all such needs in advance it is important that the Corporate Knowledge Map is evolutionary and can therefore adapt to new identified needs.
