5 benefits of using a Knowledge Hub group to support your project


With more projects in the public sector bringing together teams from across different organisations, project teams can benefit greatly from the use of Knowledge Hub to support the project as a way to stay connected, collaborate effectively and share knowledge easily. 

In this blog post, we will explore five benefits of using a Knowledge Hub group to support a cross-organisation project.

Effective Communication

One of the primary benefits of using Knowledge Hub is effective and transparent communication, and this is very effective when managing a group for a project team. The group can provide a trusted, secure space for team members to communicate easily and quickly whenever they need to, no matter where they are in the world. Whether it’s raising an issue with the team, sharing an important message or getting the team’s views/ideas, the group can be used to keep the team up to date with the project’s progress in a way that suits their work schedule. It can also help to reduce the need for costly face-to-face meetings and provide a way to check in more frequently. 


Improved Collaboration

A Knowledge Hub group helps project groups come together and improve the way they collaborate with each other. Team members can share project files in a dedicated document library, collaborate in real time on documents, ask questions as they come up, raise any concerns in a timely manner and provide project updates on the project plan. This allows project groups to work together seamlessly, even if they are in different locations.


Easy Knowledge Sharing

Another advantage of using a Knowledge Hub group for a project is the ease of knowledge flow and sharing. Using the extensive range of collaboration tools, team members can share best practices, and helpful tips and offer advice to one another. This helps to ensure that everyone has access to the latest information and knowledge, leading to improved problem-solving and decision-making.


Increased Accountability

Using a Knowledge Hub group also increases accountability among project team members. Adding key timelines and deadlines for all members to view and allowing the team to directly update the progress ensures that everyone is aware of what is expected of them, and the project stays on track. If a question is asked or a document has been shared, all team members will have access to it and be able to view/comment on it.


Reduced Costs and Time

Finally, Knowledge Hub can help project groups to reduce costs and time spent on face-to-face meetings and unnecessary travel. Project teams can communicate and collaborate remotely and save valuable time and money allowing them to focus on project tasks. As a bonus, if you work in the public sector, you can create an ‘open’ or ‘restricted’ group free of charge. It is quick to set up and you’ll have full access to a range of collaboration tools to support your project’s needs.


Key Takeaways:

  • Knowledge Hub provides a trusted space for effective communication and collaboration among project team members.
  • Project teams can benefit from easy knowledge sharing and increased accountability.
  • Use the relevant collaboration tools available to help to reduce costs and time spent on meetings and unnecessary travel.
