This narrative is designed to make the learning experience highly practical, as it considers how an administration can improve communications internally and with citizens. It is based on a city, the mayor, elected officials, full time officers and employees with a focus on utilities supervision.

    It is said that “knowledge is the currency of the new economy.”  And yet, essential, strategic, expensive knowledge is walking out your door every week.  Voluntary turnover is on the rise and, more critically, highly experienced baby boomers are retiring in great numbers.

    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.
