Most of the time, when we think of succession planning we think of preparing people for more responsibility and for vertical promotions up the organization chart. But succession planning can also be focused on the unique issues associated with such knowledge workers as engineers, research scientists, mortgage bankers, actuaries, IT professionals, and others who are hired for what they know rather than who they know or how they can manage others. It is possible to give knowledge workers promotions horizontally on the organization chart based on them acquiring more knowledge or deeper knowledge. This webinar describes a robust approach to managing the unique talent management issues associated with knowledge workers and transferring their important, proprietary knowledge.
