Valuing, Cultivating, and Effectively Sharing Tacit Knowledge
Tuesday, May 17, 2011 1:00pm CST
Human capital has been defined as the knowledge, skills, and experience that an employee utilizes in the workplace. One element of human capital is an individual's tacit knowledge, or know-how, beliefs, experiences and values.
With 77 million baby boomers preparing to retire in the near future, and only 44 million Gen Xers to fill the leadership void, the organizations that effectively and purposefully collect, utilize, and disseminate the individual tacit knowledge of their workers will be more effective at achieving their organizational missions.
This webinar focuses on the value of tacit knowledge and how organizations such as Avantas, Boys Town, Caterpillar, Defense Acquisition University and the Peace Corps are successfully cultivating and sharing this knowledge.
