At GE, our knowledge sharing program was re-created as an enterprise-wide KM Strategy and began implementation in early 2016. In just over two years, we have designed and launched 150+ global communities for our engineering staff and others across GE businesses (130K members). Our focus is on tacit knowledge exchange for GE’s engineering workforce. Within a year, we expect to grow to about 200 communities that engage about 175,000 employees in both our primary and supporting roles to our 45K+ engineers. This is the foundation of our KM approach – working within and across businesses to connect employees and drive business value.
