Best Practices for Effective Knowledge Management

  • Different than a “process document” in it’s abbreviated style and focus on content instead of brand/titled “documents”
  • Knowledge Articles should include small “bites” of information.
  • Knowledge Articles should be one page or next. If longer it should use indexing.
  • Use Headings to Organize Standard Content for Easy Reading.
  • Use Standardized Templates for a common look and feel directly to the content.

ServiceNow offers 4 Template Types in addition to the Standard KB Format

After the Knowledge Base is set up, you can start a campaign. Some do this through Brown Bag Workshops where they introduce the Knowledge Database, How to use it to start creating and searching articles in the knowledge base with a reference to the User Guide.

While people might be quick to use existing knowledge, it can be challenging them to incorporate new articles in. A Knowledge Management Workshop can help teams realize how to create content, and helps them generate a list of articles that they have subject matter expertise in.

Create knowledge articles

Users with the required permissions can begin to search and create articles for the knowledgebase. It is a good idea before creating an article to do a search to see if there is duplicate or similar knowledge. From the Knowledge homepage, you can select a knowledge base to search for articles and answers. You can view only the knowledge bases to which you have access.
