Here at Sasken, we have two forums where a wide range of knowledge sharing takes place: Eta and TEchByte. Besides encouraging communication and knowledge sharing, this helps reduce the learning cycle within organization.
Technical discussions, blog posts, suggestions, write ups on technology trends and design are captured under TechByte. All process related discussion, blogs, suggestions, limitations, query, project experience, quality improvement are captured under Eta.
KenShare presents another opportunity for knowledge sharing; it captures case studies, best practices, test plan, test strategy, knowledge, skill, competency, library and white papers.
Sasken is open for taking forward any ideas suggested by employees. For this purpose two idea generation forums are made available to all. Ideas which have immediate business relevance can be presented under Quark. Responses to Quark are presented to a panel to evaluate and decide further action. Ideas which are futuristic and may not have immediate business relevance are captured under Seed Quark. Core technology teams evaluate these ideas and concepts and decide the course of action for them.
These talent incubation forums help employees learn fast, obtain guidance and suggestions from best practices. Through the talent incubation forums, ideas can be patented; Sasken takes care of patenting cost. Every time an employee produces path breaking ideas and/or concepts, he or she receives appreciation from senior executives and monitory benefits, apart from support in order to have his or her project see the light of day.
