Sharing Knowledge & Good Practice
Knowledge sharing is a part of the knowledge management process, where information has been collected and put into context to make more sense. At C.Co we’re different to other consultancies because we see it as our duty to our clients and to the sector to share knowledge and learning rather than keep it ourselves to aid cost effective sector improvement.
It’s easy for organisations to operate in isolation and measure themselves against themselves. At C.Co we believe in the power of networks and have extensive experience of R&D projects that being together experience from across the sector – most recently our research has led to a number of papers including schools traded services, ethical commercialism, innovative customer services and cost of care.
We often work with local authorities who are interested in exploring new opportunities facilitating and leading discussion and research.
At C.Co we don’t believe there is any such thing as ‘best’ practice. We know that organisations are different and one organisation’s ‘best’ relies on their specific requirements and context. These are highly individual, made up of different groups of methodologies, processes, rules, theories, values and concepts. We will always look to share our experience of other good practices that you can learn from them and move from ‘best practice’ to ‘next practice’. And we will share our learning ‘warts and all’ to allow you to succeed.

Whilst it […]

Local Authorities must provide a comprehensive and efficient library service for all persons in the area that want to make use of it, taking into account local needs and within available resources.
