Knowledge Transfer & Peer Mentoring: A Conversation with Steve Trautman
How do institutions effectively deal with an aging workforce and staff turn-over? What approaches can be used to facilitate the transition of valuable knowledge and skills to a new generation of workers? Join the SID-Washington KM Working group for a presentation and Q&A by knowledge management expert Steve Trautman. Steve’s expertise in the issue of knowledge transfer was born from his years at Microsoft in the early 1990s where he started out as a project manager on the early versions of Word. He pioneered the field of Knowledge Transfer using Peer Mentoring as a solution to the immediate needs of the team he led. Steve later founded one of the earliest training departments at Microsoft (supporting the one-third of the company shipping software) and continued to hone the Knowledge Transfer tools there. That work was the foundation for the program that Steve has since delivered for companies like Electronic Arts (EA), Boeing, Nike, Intel, U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force, and other blue chip companies.
