Knowledge Intensive Services strategists

A broad mix of 80 stakeholders from 5 European countries attended a conference in Porto, Portugal, organised by the Devon and Cornwall Business Council (DCBC). Akumen collected perceptions from delegates in workshops and meetings. These perceptions were then mapped and analysed using the Knowledge Tree software to give a deep understanding and a definition of the issues faced by KIS.

The five major themes identified and defined now form the core of DCBC strategy for the future of KIS organisations.
