Employee Management: 6 Steps to Achieve Knowledge Transfer
As older employees retire from the ag workforce, companies need to have a plan to make certain ‘acquired knowledge’ isn’t lost as well.
The Ag 1 Source consultants spend much of their winter at Ag Industry tradeshows and conferences. Every year, there is at least one industry problem or concern that tends to be discussed at each show we attend. This year, our article from the November issue of Croplife® magazine, “Thinking Ahead Today For Tomorrows Sake,” generated some good discussion along with concerns from many of the retailers we visited with. Most, if not all, agree with our plea to put a succession plan in place, yet struggle with how to actually pass on the knowledge and information to the future leaders.
The concept of passing along critical information from a departing employee to their successor or multiple people within an organization is more commonly known as Knowledge Transfer or KT. Knowledge transfer, at its simplest, is a written plan that includes a timeline to pass along each and every critical piece of knowledge held by a key employee.
We’ll dissect Knowledge Transfer into six basic steps in this article.
