Alonso Perez-Soltero, Javier Grijalva-Garcia, Mario Barcelo-Valenzuela


Today, knowledge has been acknowledged as an important source of competitive advantage and value creation for organizations. The leveraging of individual knowledge in an organization is important to improve its competitiveness and internal processes. The proposal presented in this work is oriented to organizations that develop research projects and need employees with the skills and competencies necessary for their development. This is difficult because the people in charge of personnel allocation to research projects do not always have the sufficient knowledge for doing an efficient allocation. The objective of this article is proposing a methodology that allows the identification of key knowledge of the employees that can be available for the people in charge of personnel allocation to research projects. A first conceptual approach, based on literature review and the comparison with other similar works, allows proposing a methodology focused in five key phases. This proposal will allow the organizations to identify, capture and disseminate key employees’ knowledge to make it available when it is needed.
