If your organization is either losing valuable knowledge due to staff retirement, staff moving to another department or leaving the company altogether then your organization has a strong case for Knowledge Management (KM). Specifically I want to address leveraging KM to manage your Human Capital. This is a continuation of thought around capturing worker knowledge. Managing your human capital when staff enter your organization through employee orientation, mapping their roles, responsibilities and their work products as they perform their duties and executing a comprehensive exit interview are all aspects of a KM strategy aimed at moving your human capital to corporate capital.
During the next several days I will post more aspects of this strategy and what I believe has to occur to be successful in Human Capital Management. I welcome your thoughts, comments concerns and examples of what works for your organization.
