Knowledge Management in Private Equity... As the leading recruiters in knowledge management, CB Resourcing has seen a flurry of enquiries over the last six months from private equity firms working to better manage and leverage their knowledge assets. This was identified as an opportunity for the sector to gain a competitive advantage in this BCG article on knowledge management in private equity.
In particular the following quote from the article resonates with what our clients have been working to achieve: “the emergence of new datasets, methods of analysis, intelligent computing power, and digital tools and processes is having a significant impact on investing. As complexity compounds in private equity’s investment deal cycles, so too does the importance of sharing the best available data and insights across investment teams in an organization.”
CB Resourcing has been engaged on projects focused on objectives such as:
- Sharing best practice in portfolio optimisation to create a vision of ‘what good looks like’
- Creating processes to share and leverage insights between investment teams following each transaction process and associated consulting studies
- Producing ‘go to’ resources for insights and expertise
- Managing and leveraging external content and consulting expertise I expect other investment firms to identify challenges in knowledge management, particularly after adjusting to a virtual working environment.
