Knowledge Transfer: ShareSmarts

Program Highlights

Expert knowledge is critical to business success, especially the tacit knowledge and expertise that comes from years of organizational experience. To capture this critical knowledge from experts and transfer it to the needed recipients (protégés), a proven knowledge transfer process is essential. Participants in this program will learn such a proven, consistent and reliable knowledge transfer process, receive the tools and templates needed, and transfer critical knowledge during the sessions and into the future.
