This is the premier guidebook in the Knowledge Mobilization Accelerator series. It is designed for organizations interested in establishing a baseline capacity in knowledge mobilization.
This handbook contains a portfolio of frugal processes and techniques for:
- Capturing and retaining hard-to-replicate knowledge;
- Accelerating experiential knowledge transfers between experts and new-entry employees, and;
- Mitigating the risk of sudden or unexpected human capital loss.
How this Guidebook is Structured
Part One sets the context for the discussion with a brief overview of knowledge mobilization. This section defines knowledge mobilization, explains its growing importance, and describes the process of knowledge creation.
Part Two is the centerpiece of Fast-Tracking In-House Expertise. It outlines the main components of the Knowledge Mobilization Accelerator, an action-oriented framework for capturing and curating mission-critical, experiential knowledge resources. It features a strategy design process based on your specific needs and preferences.
Part Three provides knowledge practitioners with six templates corresponding to a different activity that they can adopt to enhance existing capacity, address a potential vulnerability, or close an identified knowledge gap. Each template also provides format variations for greater tactical flexibility and versatility.
