With the impending retirement of the Baby Boomer generation, the need for transferring knowledge is a business imperative. A recent BusinessWeek article, Intelligence Lost: The Boomers Are Exiting, notes “The loss of business intelligence and corporate knowledge, especially in R&D-focused organizations, could amount to billions of dollars in lost intellectual capital. Leaders must act fast.” If you are an HR leader, where do you start?
Join my colleague, APQC Executive Director Cindy Hubert, for our complimentary September Human Capital Management (HCM) community call. Cindy will discuss ways the HR professional can leverage knowledge management (KM) strategies to meet today’s HCM challenges, including the challenge of preserving corporate knowledge. The discussion will focus on approaches to:
- help HR identify and locate critical knowledge in the organization,
- access expertise and knowledge internally,
- develop effective virtual collaboration and teaming, and
- decrease time to competency, with a focus on the challenge of generational gaps.
Webinar registrants will receive a complimentary article on knowledge retention and transfer approaches from our Knowledge Base.
I hope you will join us for the one hour call on Thursday, September 29 at 10:00 a.m. CDT.
