    In the Information Age, businesses must not only mitigate “brain drain”, they must make knowledge and process wisdom a true asset that can be leveraged across the organization.  Unfortunately, traditional HR practices and high-tech knowledge management systems have not been up to the challenge for most organizations.

    Don’t leave knowledge transfer to chance.  Institute a system to capture, share and manage this critical asset.
