In-Focus: Capturing and Sharing Company Know-How
Knowledge can define a company’s unique proposition and is a key source of business value. Loss of knowledge can place a huge risk on business survival and competitiveness. In this In-Focus report, supported by CrossKnowledge, we address the concerns faced by C-suite executives to address major talent and capability gaps and considers how L&D leaders can enable and facilitate the sharing of knowledge across their organisation.
We investigate the issue of how organisations can uncover and harness the wealth of knowledge residing in their workforce, and in their extended enterprise. Through an understanding of the tactics that support successful collaboration and ways in which technology can unlock potential partnerships, this report aims to build confidence in people professionals supporting knowledge transfer.
We look at those tactics that are most highly correlated with results. Through exploring evidence from some of the most successful learning organisations, participating in the Towars Maturity 2016 Benchmark, we describe a clear way forward for those L&D leaders keen to support effective knowledge transfer and deliver results!
Putting the concept of knowledge transfer to work across the organisation boundary, we turned to leaders in L&D to contribute their own knowledge about the processes and programmes that work for them. Look out for the sidebars in each chapter that capture some of the insights from the webinar held by CrossKnowledge in December 2016.
We use data-based evidence to develop practical hints and tips, so that you can improve knowledge transfer in your organisation.
