Network Orchestrating

Within an organisation or collaboration of companies there is always the need to better understand and manage large knowledge intensive networks. A critical ability here is Network Skill Assessment that we define as “to learn what the network needs to learn about”.

Within an organisation or collaboration of companies there is always the need to better understand and manage large knowledge intensive networks. A critical ability here is Network Skill Assessment that we define as “to learn what the network needs to learn about”.

As heightened competition forces companies to engage in an ongoing redefinition of their product and service offerings, so will knowledge networks need to optimize both their agile skill portfolio and its efficiencies. In other words, we believe in the need to make the spread and density of skills throughout a network visible to enable meta optimisation.

From both a strategic and an operational perspective, being able to identify critical skill sets within a knowledge network offers a better understanding of risks and potential areas of improvement.

At Exospect we believe that skill mapping a knowledge intensive network and identifying a Network Orchestrator are essential in the re/up skilling of the workforce, defining a process to keep the knowledge network relevant and strengthening professional cohesion.

The Network Orchestrator does not manage but orchestrates the community:

  • Accepted gatekeeper
  • Accepted matchmaker
  • Has overview of the combined members’ capabilities
  • Trusted Intermediary
  • Ability to generate synergistic actions

The cohesiveness of the network strengthens as the perceived benefits grow and become visible. Outcomes of adopting the Exospect solution are:

  • Stronger influence on network growth, connectivity, and innovation.
  • The network of members is now organized by a gatekeeper
  • It becomes every time easier for the orchestrator to create subsets of members
    1. Developing joint applications for higher innovation, lower cost or better timeline
    2.  Help develop visibility of members for innovators
  • the Exospect platform enables visibility of capabilities (and needs) across the whole ecosystem, allowing the orchestrator to generate insights on
    1. Which capabilities are more available?
    2. Which capabilities are scarcest?
    3. Knowing strong points and vulnerabilities of the network that creates a strong “pull” to develop focused courses or conference topics.
  • Acting on any of the earlier outcomes creates even stronger network externalities (i.e. the larger the network, the larger the benefits of belonging to it, and therefore the larger it tends to become).

By making a network transparent the right person with the right level of knowledge can be approached to support the right project or innovation cycle.
