EXPLORATION OF KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER METHODS & TOOLS
Over its lifetime, organizations acquire information, knowledge and wisdom. Organizational (institutional) memory retains this for future employees to access and use. Knowledge transfer processes ensure appropriate collection, compilation, storage and access to organizational knowledge. Using your experience in organizations as well as through your research, identify and critically analyze five different knowledge transfer methods or tools. For example, wikis are a popular knowledge transfer tool used by many organizations. Classroom training and orientation programs are a couple of examples of organizational knowledge transfer methods. Explain the advantages and disadvantages of each method or tool included in your analysis.
Describe the knowledge transfer methods and tools you will utilize at the close of your project before the project team is disbanded, and explain the rationale behind your choices. Be sure to properly cite the sources of information used to inform your decision, providing at least one citation per source used that helped you arrive at a final decision.
