The success of a knowledge transfer plan will look different for every organization because goals will vary for each plan based on a company’s industry and needs.

Evaluating and measuring knowledge transfer against goals outlined will quickly identify gaps in the strategy and allow for a shift in the plan moving forward.

Knowledge transfer is no easy task and is not something completed overnight, but with careful preparation and clear goals, it can be accomplished and set your organization up for success in the long term.

Whether you’re looking to capture the knowledge of your retiring workforce or shorten ramp-up time for new hires, by identifying whose knowledge you’re capturing, what knowledge you need, sharing the necessary knowledge and then measuring the results against defined goals, you’re on your way to success.
