I record a regular series of podcasts about topics related to information and knowledge management. The most recent podcast interview may interest you:
This podcast is an interview with Leonie Houtman, Ph.D. candidate at VU University in Amsterdam about her knowledge management research.
The title of the research project is "Knowledge Retention and Employee Turnover: The Role of Transactive Memory", which she summarizes as:
"Organizational membership changes at an increasingly higher rate, specifically due to the upcoming retirement of the baby-boom generation and layoffs of personnel due to the changing economic environment. Organizations need to deal with the preservation of their intellectual capacity in light of any future changes in the organizational network that will occur. This research proposes to investigate the influence of employee turnover on the structure, processes and quality of an organization's transactive memory system and its impact on knowledge retention, by conducting several case studies at multiple organizations. "
Leonie explains the role of transactive memory, why trust is so important in knowledge sharing and the effect of virtual teams on knowledge sharing in organizations.
