Keywords: knowledge management, development, international organisations
AbstractThis contribution to Community Notes gives a glimpse into the workings of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Renewal Project, covering the example of cross-organisational knowledge sharing. The FAQ discusses first what added value cross-organisational knowledge sharing creates and what is different about knowledge from within organisations. Afterwards the pre-conditions for cross-organisational knowledge sharing are outlined and possible organisational forms presented. In the last part, you will find some tips on effective approaches and tools for cross-organisational knowledge sharing and how to get started.
