The Trans-Caledon Tunnel Authority (TCTA), a state-owned liability management entity mandated to finance and develop bulk water infrastructure in South Africa, is cognizant of the fact that knowledge plays a critical role in facilitating socio-economic development, empowering states, institutions and communities to plan, implement and sustain innovative interventions. Therefore, managing knowledge effectively has recently been pinpointed as a principal element of TCTA’s corporate strategy to be a leading change agent in the development of innovative solutions to complex water security challenges.
The knowledge strategy of the organization commits that more efforts will be directed to how it creates, exploits and retains intellectual assets; how it builds internal relationships and external networks, and designs and sustains processes in support of knowledge flows; and how it tracks the translation of intangible assets into strategic intents and return on investments.
The four knowledge pillars adopted – water sector thought leadership, business value-add, synergistic partnerships, and learning organization – provide a pragmatic framework for knowledge management over the medium term. Together, they guide TCTA’s transformation to a knowledge organization and foremost change agent in the broader water sector, underscoring improvements in the cultural and operational aspects of learning and knowledge management, as well as catalyzing knowledge for innovation and development effectiveness among clients and stakeholders.
