Knowledge management or KM is synonymous with and part of technical collaboration very evident in this picture from SME (Society of Manufacturing Engineers) 2016 Montreal Advanced Manufacturing Technology Show in Place Bonaventure.
Visitors to this show benefited from the “know how” of new advances in their industry because representatives of many different international companies were available to exhibit their technologies providing potential customers “real-time” views of their hardware and technologies in action.
Additionally, their “captive” audience had opportunity to try out things and ask a lot of questions about equipment and related accessories regarding how it may give their companies a competitive advantage in the marketplace.
It was a win-win situation because by sharing technology information exhibitors had more sales while their clients benefited from acquiring the technologies as well as having trained employees because this event also provided access to lectures and specialized training by professional engineers and experts as follow-up with the new bought equipment.
This is my contribution for WP single word prompt:”COLLABORATION”.
