Please help... Question surrounding the relationship between the Competency Framework & tacit knowledge transfer
I have recently completed my APMP exam and am now I am in my final semester of my MSc in Project Management - The Question that I have raised may need refining and if so I am open to suggestions?!
Within the oil and gas industry a majority of Veterans and Baby Boomers are predicted to exit the workforce by 2015 and are followed by a much smaller group of talent, Generation X. How can we capture and transfer these Veterans and Baby Boomers communal know-how-their tacit knowledge-especially if it has not been adequately identified, captured, codified and stored in corporate knowledge repositories?
1. Has anyone had any experince dealing with these issues and have come up with any type of solutions?
2. Do you think this question is relevant to todays issues or is it a thing of the past?
3. Has this topic already been adequately addressed if so where?
4. What are the expectations of CEO's when people within the organsiation leave a project developmenmet team that are reliant upon such high levels of competencies and tacit knowledge.
For any further qualifications please do not hesitate to respond.
