Application Development, Maintenance & Support Roundtable
Knowledge Transfer Best Practices
Effective Knowledge Transfer is critical to successful Application Development, Maintenance & Support teams.
There are many situations when your organization must be able to create effective knowledge transfer. Examples include:
- New People
- When Key Personnel Retire
- When you have new development teams.
If your knowledge transfer process takes too long, you can often kill the business case for new projects. And if you aren't careful to capture business knowledge you may render some key business applications useless! When you consider the rate at which current baby boomers are retiring, then you may be facing a critical issue and not know it!
In this roundtable, you’ll meet with your peers and share best practices in knowledge transfer for the Application Development, Support & Maintenance area
Sample Topics to be discussed include:
- Examples of how roundtable participants conduct Knowledge transfer in their business.
- The different types of knowledge content and which is most relevant to developers and support personnel.
- Where to easily find current knowledge.
- How to convert knowledge into standard templates so people outside of the IT organization can benefit.
- A framework for self-documentation and who should be responsible for documentation
- How to measure and manage the knowledge transfer process
- Quick paths to knowledge transfer when you really need to get it done.
- Tools that your peers are using to implement their document and knowledge transfer process.
- When all else fails - what to do when you need to reverse engineer.
