Re: June 2009 SIKM Call: Bill Kaplan - Managing the Risk of Knowledge Loss Due to Workforce Attrition #monthly-call #knowledge-retention

Murray Jennex

I have a paper in review that proposes a knowledge loss risk assessment process.  It extends on the nuclear industry's process and is individual specific rather than position specific and uses a scoring system to determine knowledge capture actions.  I am willing to share the finalized conference paper (for AMCIS in August) but it does not include the scoring system (that is a journal paper still under review).  I am also willing to share a presentation I made on this topic last February to the insurance industry at the LOMA conference in San Diego.  Let me know if interested....murray jennex

Today's call with Bill Kaplan was timely and interesting - nice presentation, Bill!  Having left Gartner a month ago I've spent the last couple weeks regrouping and researching where the business world is these days with regard to this issue.  Previous to Gartner my role with PG&E was as an internal consulting principal responsible for developing and implementing a risk mitigation strategy to address the aging workforce issue, so it is an area I have spent a good deal of time and energy working on.

In researching this topic now it appears that interest in it has grown a good bit in the year since I last looked at it closely.  While it is still early days in my search for my next position, I am interested in discussing opportunities in consulting, either as an internal/staffer or external.  If anyone has any leads or info on companies or firms that are interested in pursuing it I would welcome the opportunity to discuss further. I can bring to the table intellectual capital and experience as well as some ideas for business case development that could be used to build a new practice or support existing practice growth.
