KM Chicago: The Knowledge Brain Drain

The 12 September meeting of KM Chicago will host Rickie Tinimbang, discussing his capstone research, The Knowledge Brain Drain.  He is one of my masters advisees from Northwestern's LOC program.

Mr. Tinimbang is interested in the problem of the retiring workforce, as senior employees leave companies due to retirement, leaving a smaller workforce with less experience. How will this impact the companies they leave? What can businesses do about it?

One option is to ensure knowledge transfer from the senior staff to junior staff through mentoring programs. Mr. Tinimbang will report on the mentoring program at a leading Fortune 500 company that specializes in risk management and consulting services.

As always, we are meeting from 5 pm in a Loop location and up in Northbrook.  Check the KM Chicago website for details.
