As you develop your succession plan, you’ll need to consider how to mitigate the loss of pure know-how that will occur when you step down. One way is to implement a knowledge management strategy. This is a formal process of treating knowledge as a valuable company asset. Knowledge generally can be subdivided into two types: 1) explicit (already documented) or 2) tacit (exists only in your brain). A comprehensive knowledge management effort related to your succession plan will call on you to gather both types in various categories. Contact us for further info.
