Introduction (Why we need this)

Due to the “baby boom” after World War II, many organizations are facing an upcoming increase in retirements. Similarly, most organizations have employee demographics where there are very few people to fill the 10-15 year gap between baby boomers and the Gen Y population. Organizations are faced with a difficult dilemma: is it wiser to wait for the wave of retirements and see how it plays out, or is it better to take immediate action?

The Knowledge Transfer Process ensures that unique and critical knowledge/capability is not lost during retirements or other workforce related changes (e.g. promotions, mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, job rotations, attrition, etc.). The four-step process is award-winning and externally validated. And, it comes with a financial calculation for Return-On-Investment for organizations seeking that important metric.

Audience

This CKS program is designed for managers and leaders that can influence their organization to prepare for upcoming loss of unique and critical knowledge/capability. Often, these individuals are Human Resources leaders, managers, or business partners. Line managers, program/project managers, and functional leads will also find value and immediate impact in this course.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the 4-step Knowledge Transfer and Continuity process
  • Practice the 4-step Knowledge Transfer and Continuity process
  • Align the Knowledge Transfer and Continuity process to your current situation
  • Improve your individual facilitation skills and capability

In this course you will not only learn the process, you will compare the process to many other related processes for a deeper understanding of its value. You will also apply the process to your current situation and needs. We utilize an interactive approach to practice the process within the classroom in real time with your peers. Finally, you will also receive helpful and impactful feedback from your peers and instructor with regard to your personal facilitation skills.
