The Steve Trautman Co., specialists in Knowledge Transfer Strategy for businesses, is finalizing its white paper to help businesses of all sizes ensure information isn’t lost when an employee resigns or retires. Available on The Steve Trautman Co. website in late May, the paper is the culmination of a six-month blog series on Knowledge Transfer Strategy.
“This white paper shows companies how to attach knowledge transfer to their existing business strategies to ensure a ready workforce one to three years out,” Steve Trautman, founder and principal of The Steve Trautman Co., says. “To test if the ‘people’ part of your organizational change is going well, ask yourself if you can walk up to any front-line employee and have them confidently answer three questions: 1. What is your role and how does it fit in the ‘new’ big picture? 2. What are your tasks now? 3. What are the standards you’ll follow so you’re consistent with new expectations?”
Based in Seattle, The Steve Trautman Co. consults with businesses on knowledge transfer, which is a process that involves several stages. First, businesses must assess the knowledge levels of currently-employed staff and document that knowledge for future use. This documentation is passed on to each person’s replacement, only to be regularly updated as procedures change.
The Steve Trautman Co. utilizes a three-step process that moves valuable knowledge from one set of workers to another, ensuring that as one group of workers leaves, another group is ready to take over. Trautman is a former Microsoft project manager who has perfected his knowledge transfer strategy over two full decades in the industry. Known for his great presentations and useful solutions, Trautman has put his transfer skills to use in helping some of the biggest companies in the world, including Cadbury, Kodak, the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force, and many more.
Through the white paper, The Steve Trautman Co. brings years of knowledge to the world at large. Trautman is a highly sought speaker as businesses seek to deal with a changing workforce, transferring years of valuable information from one generation of workers to another. White papers are widely used in business-to-business (B2B) marketing to explain technical concepts, providing solutions to known business issues.
With this white paper, The Steve Trautman Co. hopes to provide information to businesses that need it. On its blog, The Steve Trautman Co. seeks to get around the buzzword of the moment, “strategy,” by fully explaining the term “knowledge transfer strategy” in the context of what it means to each individual business.
By implementing knowledge transfer strategy, businesses can mitigate risks and avoid productivity loss as it relates to employee turnover. By opening up the lines of communication in organizations, Steve Trautman and his team hope to reduce productivity loss by increasing documentation and cross training in businesses throughout the world.
