The Knowledge Silo Matrix Exercise will help you understand and address your pool’s skill gaps and talent risks — and is useful preparation if you plan to participate in our upcoming Knowledge Transfer Workshop.
NOTE: If you haven’t taken part in the Big Picture Project, we recommend completing it before starting this exercise. See our Succession Planning Residency page for a broader overview of the process.
Once you’ve completed the steps above, we recommend you:
- Review this guide to learn how you can use your matrix to support your pool.
- Read our recent issue of Intelligence. It explains what a good knowledge transfer program looks like, discusses common misconceptions about knowledge transfer, and explores real-world knowledge transfer situations.
