CUTTING EDGE KNOWLEDGE
Keeping You In The Know
At LEXXER our business is knowledge and how it can be developed and used commercially. We view it as a valuable commodity, which will give you an advantage in your chosen field. Whether in providing innovative and effective solutions, a range of advice and intervention services or advocacy knowledge underpins all we do. In short we keep you in the KNOW!
Like many new ideas it appears complicated but it is the development of a process we all do every day - if we are lost or have a problem we ask someone who knows. LEXXER Solutions simply manages that process for you and makes sure who you rely on for help actually knows what they are talking about. Knowledge Brokerage really is a No Brainer.
Knowledge Brokering, is a systematic approach to seeking external ideas from people in a variety of industries, disciplines, and contexts and then of combining the resulting lessons in new ways. The collaborative space provided acts as a catalyst for new innovative ideas and solutions to problems.
At LEXXER Solutions we are inspired by the Renaissance where the power of ideas and knowledge revolutionized the world. Our Knowledge work is grounded on what we call Dx3 the Discovery, Development and Dissemination of Knowledge. This places us at the nexus of universities, research institutions, think tanks and the commercial and community sectors.
As a Knowledge Broker LEXXER is both a guide and a gate keeper working to pair internal “seekers” with external “solvers.” The value of an expert who will source the best knowledge and most innovative solutions from a range of disciplines allows for organisations and companies to break free from traditional tired ways of thinking. Fresh ideas from outside you box applied analogically will prove the best solution you need.
The result is problem solving, product development, service enhancement and process innovation. Our development of a Web-based social-networking framed Knowledge Management System called The ORACLE means that the collective know-how of thousands of academics, experts, practitioners and peers is more accessible than ever.
LEXXER Solutions - The Answer
The LEXXER concept is grounded upon research, which builds upon and connects up work from separate areas in a way that generates new perspectives, fresh insights and innovative methodologies which expand and refine knowledge of a particular problem providing effective solutions.
We have developed our approach to Research with the VARSITY Concept which will ensure research is fit for purpose and geared towards commercial application. We mean business about research and together we can make it pay. VARSITY provides a framework for ensuring world class research. It will focus on
- VALUE - in the commissioning and development of research value for money, an intrinsic value in the work and a valuable marketable end product will be ensured.
- ACTION - a clear action plan with measurable milestones and outcomes will take research forward and will ensure that it is fit for purpose and will be put into action.
- RELEVANCE - real world requirements will be applied to ensure that it remains relevant and usable, leading the field with an identifiable objective.
- SUSTAINABLE - research will be required to meet a series of sustainability tests which will ensure that it becomes more self sufficient and self promoting.
- IMPACT - the potential impact will be assessed and audited with a clear vision for maximising both the audiences and the applications of the work.
- TEACHING - education and training will be promoted as part of the programme to ensure researchers remain part of a wider academic community.
- YIELD- the profit made will be reinvested into the research work to provide an incentive for further development and a maximiser effect.

Knowledge brokering offers you an analogous capability. This is simply taking an idea, or process or piece of knowledge from one area or sector and applying it to another, by analogy we reach a new solution. These connections are made by our team of knowledge brokers—who create the space and time for an exchange of knowledge which combines the external ideas with internal ones to improve your business processes.
At LEXXER we wish to take international best practice and apply it to Northern Ireland in order to develop it as a world leading Knowledge Economy. While some sectors like engineering, bio-technology and IT are already quite well advanced with important partnerships between business and local universities, others have yet to discover the potential.
Therefore we wish to focus on what is known as the Third Sector – community and voluntary groups charities and not for profit organisations, which is well developed and has achieved much in the wake of recent conflict, however decades of accumulated knowledge and experience is often lost when projects stop, funding is not secured or staff move on.
