Abstract

The context we address is digitalisation
and we want to make the case for decision analytics as one of the key
drivers to both meet the challenges from big data/fast data and to work
out the new possibilities we are getting to mobilise knowledge, i.e. to
make tacit knowledge explicit and to make it accessible and usable for automated, intelligent systems.
The use of powerful, intelligent systems is one of the relevant
solutions in the digitalisation that is now spreading in industry and
business. Digitalisation brings increasing competition, slimmer margins
for productivity and profitability and more pronounced requirements for effective planning, problem solving and decision making.
This requires a transfer of knowledge from experts and experienced
people to novice system operators—and to automated, intelligent
systems—a transfer we call knowledge mobilisation.
We will work out reasons for why digital coaching will be a key part of
knowledge mobilisation and a key step in the development of instruments
we need for the progress of digitalisation.
