The landscape of Accelerated Knowledge Transfer (AKT) is evolving rapidly, particularly with the advent of specialised applications designed to facilitate the efficient transfer of organisational knowledge. These emerging tools are playing a pivotal role in capturing, managing, and disseminating knowledge within businesses, ensuring that critical information is accessible and actionable. Their development is often founded upon three primary pillars:

Procedural Knowledge Handling

The best AKT applications offer an intuitive and simple user experience, allowing users to focus on the essence of knowledge capture without the complications of document formatting and standards compliance. This is achieved by embedding smart document standards within the application itself.

Key Features:

  • Simplicity in Design: An intuitive interface is paramount, allowing users to navigate and create procedural documents with ease.
  • Embedded Standards: By integrating smart document standards, these applications ensure compliance and up-to-date document creation without additional user effort.

Intelligent Assist

Leveraging AI, AKT applications are equipped to assist users in synthesising various types of knowledge, automating processes, and reducing the friction typically associated with knowledge management.

Key Benefits:

  • AI Integration: Advanced algorithms can merge disparate knowledge types, providing a unified knowledge base.
  • Seamless Integration: These applications can often integrate with major knowledge bases, such as SharePoint and ServiceNow, ensuring a cohesive ecosystem for knowledge management.

Knowledge at Scale

A standout feature of emerging AKT applications is their ability to support knowledge transfer at scale. All-in-one, intelligent platforms are capable of handling the full "knowledge journey" – from rapid capture and automatic formatting to the published transfer of knowledge.


  • Consistency: These applications enable the creation and distribution of documented knowledge consistently across the organisation.
  • High Scalability: Whether dealing with a team of ten or an enterprise of ten thousand, these tools are designed to manage large volumes of knowledge without compromising quality or accessibility.

As organisations continue to recognise the critical role of knowledge in achieving competitive advantage, these three pillars will become increasingly important. The future of AKT apps lies in their ability to seamlessly integrate into the daily workflows of users, reducing barriers to knowledge sharing and enabling organisations to remain agile and informed in a rapidly changing business environment.

In conclusion, the AKT applications represent a significant advancement in the way knowledge is handled within organisations. By simplifying, automating, and scaling knowledge transfer, they empower businesses to harness the full potential of their collective intelligence, ensuring that valuable insights and expertise are retained and utilised effectively.
