Founded in January 2007, Knowledge Mobilization Works is based in Ottawa, Canada. We are dedicated to helping individuals and organization move what is known into what they do.
Our leadership team each manages a portfolio of products and services that focuses on an emerging area of practice:
Peter Levesque’s focus is on knowledge mobilization, social media, community-based research, outcome measurements, evaluation, and innovation.
Gray Daniels’ focus is on gameification, game mechanics, complex systems, data visualization, and sustainability.
Our Associates also have their area of specialization. Together we are able to produce original content & ideas and attract great people to leading edge events.
Our goal is simple: help make better decisions to produce better outcomes.
We define knowledge mobilization as the complex process of making knowledge ready for service or action to create new value and benefits. The concept of “readiness” is recognition that while data and information can be analyzed by machines and presented in various ways, for this analysis to become knowledge, the content requires a social life with feedback loops that support the adaptation to variations in contexts, capacities of individuals and organizations, and cultures (both social and institutional).
We offer a range of services that are combined in ways that best support each of our clients. Our CFIT model brings together consulting, facilitating, funding, incubating, imagineering, and training into comprehensive and customized packages that meets the needs of each client to improve their specific condition.
We produce original content – blog posts, events, partnerships, workshops – that identify and address needs in the marketplace.
From our perspective, the client is always at the centre of what we do.
