The company where I work is growing quite rapidly and some distance is starting to appears between departments. One of my colleague had to deal with a database project without having any background in the matter. He struggled a lot by his own and ended with something that is working, but poorly designed technically speaking. Once I have been aware of this, I offered him my help (since I do have such background), he was happy about it and we solved many issues together.
This situation seems to me like it will happen again and again in the future as the company is growing .
I am therefore looking for a convenient way to identify and index each people skills, being job related or not, in order to promote mutual assistance.
I think the best solution would be some sort of web based tools where everybody could insert their skills and we could browse the index with search filters (and all the nice feature we are now used to see on a webapp).
Does anybody has something to suggest that could be a nice solution to the problem of knowledge isolation ?
