Knowledge management solutions for expertise transfer on “Zukunft Personal 2008”
On this year's conference „Zukunft Personal“ in Cologne, Europe's largest trade fair for human resources, Pumacy Technologies AG presents solutions and methods for preserving employee experiences and expertise to support human resource management focussing the impact of demographic change in hall 5.1, stand K 40.
Besides a shortage of young people in many parts of economy, the retirement of older workers and the growing threat of losing knowledge and innovative potential are important issues for today's businesses. Furthermore, according to the „Institut für Mittelstandsforschung Bonn“ (IFM) in Germany 71,000 business transfers take place each year. Here, the systematic transfers of high-level management knowledge and, of course, individual networks have highest priority.
According to its own figures two-thirds of companies are not or not adequately prepared for the demographic change. These are the dramatic results revealed by the survey „Pro 50 – Arbeit mit Zukunft“ of the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). However, only these companies that familiarize themselves with long-term strategies on sustainable knowledge assurance can ensure innovation and competitiveness and, finally, future business success.
”The identification of stakeholders, the capturing of their know-how and the transfer of their knowledge to succeeding generations are central challenges of human resource managers. Companies in almost every industry and size will have to face with the implications of demographic change sooner or later,” said Dr. Toralf Kahlert, CEO of Pumacy Technologies AG.
On the basis of more than six years of experience mainly in the aerospace industry, Pumacy Technologies AG has developed the solution "K.exchange" within their comprehensive knowledge management portfolio. "K.exchange" is a sophisticated method set to preserve expert and management knowledge and experience. It enables the development, identification and support of a continuous knowledge transfer by the implementation of a systematic process in combination with methods to minimize the loss of experience.
Pumacy also presents practical tools for securing experiences and ideas, such as the KMmaster® (www.kmmaster.de), a web-based knowledge management platform for knowledge and innovation management.
