The megatrend NewWork addresses the fundamental and structural change in the world of work in which we find ourselves today. NewWork means the future of our way of working and is influenced by a wide range of influencing factors and trends. Digitization, demographic change, forms of combination of leisure and work, new values, … are causes for the transformation taking place.

Traditional job profiles are replaced by new occupations or automation solutions, companies adapt to the needs of employees and become agile. We humans change our knowledge and convert to life long learning, because we know our training profession not eternal to exercise.

MANAGEMENT
BACK

Knowledge-intensive value creation is becoming increasingly important. Knowledge management – the successful use of the resource knowledge – therefore becomes a success factor for companies.

The research focus on knowledge management at the IITF has the aim to evaluate, apply approaches and methods of knowledge management especially for the target group of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in pilot projects. The IITF pursues a holistic, but highly person-centered and organizational knowledge management approach, in which the human being is the center of knowledge. For supporting software solutions, the IITF can rely on the expertise of cooperation partners.

INNOVATION-

Experience from many innovation projects shows that
Innovations in SMEs are often random and rarely the result of a systematic innovation process. On the one hand, there is a lack of methodological competence in many SMEs and, on the other hand, many methods are not geared to the specific needs of SMEs.

In particular, mastering the early stages of the innovation process – fuzzy front end – is a key success factor for the companies ability to innovate. The main aim here is to specifically promote the creativity of knowledge workers and to systematically and methodically support their creative processes.
