Unlocking the Value of Knowledge Transfer
Sustainable Change in Workforce Performance

A big question is: will you have the thought leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to run and grow your business?

Our white paper describes how effective knowledge transfer can create extraordinary value in your critical business metrics while helping to ensure that your workforce has the capabilities, expertise, flexibility and resilience to adapt to change and thrive versus your competition.

The aging workforce with looming boomer retirements, can create dire consequences as important knowledge walks out the door. The exodus is underway. You may be worried by skills gaps in the younger hires joining your company. Both factors impact your business goals to reduce process costs or cycle time, grow revenue, improve customer service or innovate and accelerate merger integration.

Knowledge is a necessary ingredient for high workforce performance, but it is not enough. You also need seasoning in the form of experience that applies the knowledge in real work. The combination of knowledge with the ability to apply it effectively is called know-how, and it typically takes many years of practice to develop.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could teach your employees to think like your best experts? The most effective ways to transfer knowledge include:

  • Knowledge Networks
  • Mentoring / Shadowing
  • Peer Assist
  • Knowledge Elicitation
  • Asking Questions

Knowledge transfer is more than a one-time reaction to the impending Boomer retirements. The need is universal and never ending. Our approach provides managers with proven ways to achieve sustainable value by accelerating competency, raising performance, and maintaining business continuity.

We work with you to provide the right mix of practical, proven processes, tools and skills to integrate knowledge transfer into your existing operations. The measurable business benefits will align with your company’s specific business strategy and metrics. Reinforcing the resulting knowledge-sharing behaviors will help your company thrive against your competition in the years ahead.
