KCS Foundations

Overview

Whether you provide technology support for a corporate help desk, products, or a third party provider, you are almost certainly under pressure to extract as much productivity as possible from your resources while also improving service levels. This comprehensive, two day workshop on Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) Version 6 will help you to achieve this.

Knowledge-Centered Support (KCS) is a business methodology that was developed and tested by members of the Consortium for Service Innovation.

KCS is a ‘just-in-time’ approach to knowledge management that integrates knowledge capture and maintenance into the problem solving process. The knowledge that is created improves internal efficiency as well as customer success on the web.

The fundamental goal of KCS is to solve a problem once and use the solution repeatedly. Organisations have shown that adoption of KCS can improve operational efficiency, customer satisfaction and employee morale. This workshop examines the need for a knowledge-centered strategy, the organising principles of KCS and the benefits that it delivers.

Who Should Attend

This two-day workshop is for support centre directors, managers, supervisors and team leaders in addition to all staff directly involved in or responsible for the knowledge management process.

    Fantastic all around. Great material, very useful handout, all made that much better by Steve. Great delivery, a wealth of experience and it has all been a genuine pleasure.

  2. Callum Wates says:

    Steve was a fantastic presenter and demonstrated KCS in a very clear and extremely helpful way that I will now be able to coach to my peers.

    I’m a business developer so the entire session isn’t relevant to my job responsibilities but I work for a search engine platform. This class opened my eyes on the knowledge management environment and how search is the next step to help improve

  4. Ian Teasdale says:

    All good.

  5. Heather MacDonald says:

    Steve was a great presenter and beautifully tied real life examples to the material. Only downside was the slideware – very basic and outdated, not representative of modern technology which is the industry KCS is based on supporting.

  6. Francessa Rossi says:

    Great instructor, excellent teaching skills. Worthy experience.

  7. Suzy Spillane says:

    Class was very informative, Steve was engaging. Really liked incorporating real life examples & class participation. Slides could use a little jazzing up but I know that’s a bit out of your hands. Some bits repetitive.

  8. Gary Gonsalvez says:

    It is too powerpoint heavy. More group interaction would help and make it a bit more engaging. Other than that, really informative, thank you.

  9. Nik Jowett says:

    Class v.good. Room temp fluctuates a lot throughout the day.

  10. Richard Pulley says:

    With regards to material it would be nice if some of the slides were bigger to make them easier to read. Great course, thank you.
