Additional Information:

The Missing Middle (TMM) is a not-for-profit online platform for facilitating knowledge transfer. Our mission is to provide a low-cost online tool for organizations to complement existing not-for-profit knowledge transfer activities.

 

TMM’s platform provides a range of unique benefits to organizations. With the online platform all types of communication (such as messaging, calling, document and photo sharing) and all steps of the process (such as matching knowledge needs with expertise, running and monitoring interactions) are located on one platform, which is securely run on our server. The online platform also allows specifying the knowledge problem before sending people “into the field” and it allows for people who are unable to travel to participate in knowledge exchange. The online platform also provides a more innovative component: it analyses interactions on the platform and gives organizations real-time insights about those interactions (such as the number of calls made, the average response time, the type of questions asked).


With this low-cost approach, knowledge exchange can be facilitated at a fraction of “in the field” missions. And because of the not-for-profit nature of TMM, organizations only pay for the running costs of the platform and a percentage of those running costs to cover long term development of TMM (such as R&D).
