Protect Company Knowledge

Employee Knowledge Transfer

Many organizations find their most highly skilled and proficient personnel caught in a trap.  These domain experts seem to be the only ones capable of handling complex problems that arise on a daily basis.  The problems might include troubleshooting a product in the field, selecting the right product to match a customer’s needs, or correctly adhering to a company policy or government regulation.

 

Managers wish that its front line personnel could handle more of these activities themselves.  It would save significant labor expense.  Perhaps more importantly, it would free up their most valuable resources for higher value activities such as designing the next product or developing a new business strategy.
