The SmartStash Podcast

Our experts talk about the parallels between manual and digital tidying and why SmartStash is "superior".

After Saskia told us all about the SmartStash Teams app and her love of tidying up in the second episode, she talks to SmartStash Product Manager Sergio Campisi about the ideal knowledge management process in the third episode, before the fourth episode focuses in particular on the genesis of SmartStash as well as its possible uses in the manufacturing industry - but first things first.

SmartStash Podcast III - On the ideal knowledge management process

About the ideal knowledge management process, the recent release and the optimal SmartStash introduction

In the third episode, Saskia had Sergio Campisi as a guest - Strategic Lead and Product Manager of SmartStash at Fellowmind Germany - who, contrary to all prejudices concerning his Italian roots, is interested in much more than just Juventus Turin and Mediterranean cuisine.

After Sergio illustrates what he likes about SmartStash right at the beginning with his own experiences, he then discusses the ideal knowledge management process with Saskia and Silke. The unanimous view is that the starting point of this process is the creation of knowledge, which, according to Saskia's experience, can happen not exclusively, but also in the shower.

Saskia and Sergio then talk about the new "news function" of SmartStash and its benefits especially for companies in the franchise and retail industry. The episode is rounded off by Silke's question about how an optimal SmartStash introduction actually works and Saskia's outlook on how SmartStash and Microsoft Viva are an exciting combination.

On the perceived difference between "guidelines" and "directives", the genesis of SmartStash and the specifics of the manufacturing industry

In the fourth episode, Saskia had Isabell Picht as a guest - team leader marketing and responsible for SmartStash product marketing at Fellowmind Germany - who not only discusses the quality of her homemade Japanese food with Saskia over dinner.

Right at the beginning of the episode, Silke raises a question that some of our listeners have certainly already asked themselves - namely how the name "The Queens Stash" came about in the first place. Isabell and Saskia then explain how the US series "The Queens Gambit", based on the novel of the same name by Walter Tevis, served as inspiration and how they want to figuratively tear down the hut with SmartStash.

Saskia then outlines the functions that will be added to SmartStash in the future so that it can also be used as an Integrated Management System (IMS) by companies in particularly regulated sectors, such as the manufacturing industry.

After Isabell has talked about her personal "favourite function", the two go into more detail about the history of SmartStash and the orange colour, as well as what the owl in the logo is all about.

Finally, Saskia and Isabell discuss how to determine what knowledge belongs in SmartStash in the first place and why "guidelines" and "policies" actually mean the same thing, but are often understood differently by people.
