In this episode of the Working with SMEs podcast, cohost Nathan Eckel leads a discussion about the importance of doing a thorough knowledge scan and capture in your organization to support succession planning efforts.
While it is likely that any new leadership is going to make some changes, a thorough assessment of the important knowledge assets in your organization can help new leaders make critical decisions and support their efforts to move the enterprise forward. As Nathan points out, often it is the soft, coded or unarticulated knowledge that is the special sauce that makes your company successful.
So it is important as you plan for the future of your organization that you do a thorough assessment of your assets today, and that you make sure you retain that information that you can’t afford to lose.
We welcome your comments and feedback. Thanks for listening.
