A generational change is occurring in today’s workplace. Approximately 70 million Boomers are due to retire over the next 15 years. Is your organization prepared to lose its intellectual capital? According to the American Productivity & Quality Center, organizations are vulnerable when it comes to passing their critical know-how from one workplace generation to the next. T
Many of us have a nagging feeling that we and our leaders should be doing something about the critical knowledge and skills that walk out the door with every retirement or departure. But what? The daily reality is that most leaders and companies don’t have the resources to engage in formal knowledge management.
