How do you transfer knowledge and experience?

Posted By on May 7, 2009 | 1 comment


As we start Baydin, we wrap up work at our old jobs. I’ve spent the last three weeks trying to “transfer” everything I’ve learned in the greater part of a decade to my colleagues. It’s tough. 

Knowledge that’s instilled or discovered over time is conveyed quickly without context. I copied my entire hard disk and passed the external drive around so that everyone could store the information. I gave a few presentations and some explanations of typical problems and what to look out for. 

Although I work with some of the smartest, most talented people around, they do not have the full context of each of these projects. I mean, how could they? I worked on it for years. They have had three weeks to ramp up before I leave.  

What we’re working on at Baydin will have huge ramifications on getting up to speed and transferring knowledge. Our software will give people the necessary context to most effectively understand and learn. In addition, it will show only what is relevant. No more. No less. 

I see examples of the need for Baydin everyday. It’s going to be exciting. Stay tuned!
