Stacy you raise a number of good points in your comment. You talk about capturing tacit knowledge when people leave an organization. There is an ongoing conversation about this though there are far too many situations where this is not done. You add what I see as a less discussed point which is capturing knowledge and sharing knowledge during the onboarding process. Certainly the organization shares knowledge, but your comment raises the issue of whether there should be knowledge capture from the person joining the organization as part of the onboarding process? I am curious as to your thoughts on this?

I really like the elements of your post that relate to imbedding knowledge capture and knowledge sharing into talent processes like - onboarding and training. One of the things I find fascinating about KM is that to truly make it work within an organization it must be inextricably linked to the talent management model (for incoming employees, in existing processes and when dealing with outgoing employees who are taking all the tacit knowledge with them) to become a part of the culture.

Engaging Books

  • Ellen Langer: "Counter Clockwise: Mindful Health and the Power of Possibility"
    This book discusses how we mindlessly accept cues from our environment about our health. Sometimes the cues are subtle and sometimes in the form of diagnosis they are overt. The result is that we may limit our own possibilities through our attitudes and actions. The book suggests taking a more mindful approach to our health, being careful what we accept as facts and looking at the times when we reflect health rather than totally focusing on a diagnosis of disease.

Music I'm Listening To

  • Tosca by Puccini. Maria Callas, Giuseppe Di Stefano, Tito Gobbi:
    This 1953 recording conducted by Victor de Sabata at La Scala is likely the definitive recording of the opera. A 1964 video of the same cast at Covent Garden can be found on "You Tube."
