Knowledge management: improving cross-organisational sharing and learning, Consultant Terms of Reference (ToR)

We are looking for a consultant with a strong track record in organisational development to support and advise on how Conciliation Resources can make more efficient and coherent use of its knowledge management systems, with a particular focus on enabling cross-organisational learning.

Over the course of the consultancy, the consultant will look both short-term and long-term. In the short term, they will propose a number of ‘quick-win, quick-fix’ actions addressing staff uncertainties around what, where and how information related to organisational learning should be shared. These actions will streamline and clarify existing systems, with the aim of building the momentum of information sharing in support of organisational learning amongst staff. Whilst the Knowledge Management Working Group will lead on integrating these actions into organisational practice, the consultant will be expected to offer support and advice on how best to do so.

Looking longer term, the consultant will assess Conciliation Resources’ knowledge management systems in the round, drawing conclusions on their suitability in enabling effective information sharing, identifying blockages and suggesting recommended reforms to its knowledge management systems which the organisation should consider undertaking over the medium to long term. These recommendations will be used to inform ongoing discussions on organisational development.

We anticipate that the deliverableswill require 12 days of the consultant’s time, subject to further discussion with applicants and agreement with the chosen consultant . The work should be carried out by the end of June 2018.

You are invited to submit a covering letter, no longer than 2 sides of A4 paper, which responds to the TOR and articulates: how you would approach the challenges set out in the TOR; what experience/expertise you bring to the role; your day rate in light of the work outlined. If helpful, we are available for you to have a conversation with us, prior to you submitting your proposal. The deadline for applications is 17.00 on Monday 26 February. Please send applications to recruitment@c-r.org
