Knowledge-Centered Service® Version 6 Leader


Knowledge-Centered Service (KCS) Version 6 is a business methodology that was developed and tested by members of the Consortium for Service Innovation.

Success in a Knowledge-Centered Service environment requires managers to behave differently because leading a value based, knowledge-centric operation is fundamentally different than managing an activity based, transaction-centric operation.  Managers need and deserve support in understanding the requirements and dynamics of this new environment.

This workshop gives managers a new perspective on their role as leaders of a KCS adoption and develops the skills needed to successfully lead a knowledge-centered organisation.

Who should Attend

The one-day Knowledge-Centered Service Leader workshop is intended for team leaders, managers and directors in service and support organisations who are in the process of migrating to the KCS methodology.

The Knowledge-Centered Service Foundations workshop is a pre-requisite for anyone wishing to attend this class.

Some of the training objectives…

  • Understand how to assess organisational performance
    in a Knowledge-Centered Service environment.
  • Define the KCS strategic framework.
  • Learn the key requirements for a successful KCS adoption.
  • Understand the value proposition for the executives,
    managers and knowledge responders.
