Resource Spotlight: Creating Technical Assistance Libraries to Capture Tacit Knowledge
In many local and international organizations, staff often lack quick and easy access to the expertise of their colleagues due to demands on time, competing priorities, and lack of systems to capture this knowledge.
To address this issue, Pathfinder created a collection of high-quality technical resources that also includes the experiences of technical advisors in using the resources.
These technical assistance libraries enable easy sharing and dissemination of high-quality resources and expertise with all Pathfinder staff worldwide—a form of technical assistance at a distance.
This resource outlines what worked well in creating the Technical Assistance Libraries, what were some of the challenges and what recommendations did the staff have for those trying to implement the planned digital repositories.
