I am sure it comes as no surprise that organizations can safe-guard
against the loss of key knowledge by institutionalizing
systems and processes for knowledge retention and transfer. There
are many technology-enabled solutions that can effectively extract
knowledge and cultural insights to reduce organizational risk
when key talent moves on. Another proven risk mitigation strat-egy
is cross training. Chris Cancialosi wrote a compelling article
in Forbes magazine referencing Tim Brown’s (CEO of IDEO) cre-ative
approach to enhancing durability, agility, flexibility, efficiency
The Conference Board’s whitepaper Bridging the Gap: How to
transfer knowledge in today’s multi-general workplace is a must read
for any HR professional.
I hope this month’s issue can serve as a conversation starter
within your team about how to optimize knowledge transfer and
retain essential knowledge, wisdom and insights that fuel your
organization’s ongoing success.
