Capturing Tribal Knowledge
I am delighted to extend this invitation to a complimentary, interactive seminar on
Capturing Tribal Knowledge through Standard Work
What is Tribal Knowledge?
Tribal knowledge is an organization’s knowledge-based asset that is known to exist in an organization,
yet not documented. In some cases, you don’t even know it exists until it is no longer available. It is found
at every level in every organization and comes in many forms. It can be untapped knowledge that no one
has asked an employee to share. It can be assumptions that others know or think they know what to do to
complete any given task successfully. Capturing this knowledge is increasingly becoming more important
with changes in workforce like retirement and increased mobility in a completive job market into other
roles and companies. The challenge lies in tapping into that knowledge, documenting it in a way that
makes sense followed by effective communication of it to the individuals that can readily benefit from the
Standard Work and Standard Operating Procedures are your organization’s documented knowledge
assets or How to Guide – It is comprised of dynamic documentation that describe the activities necessary
in order to complete a specific task or process to meet the organization’s standards and ensure client
satisfaction. Standard work is essentially your best practice until you find a better way.
