Rapid expansion and contraction cycles are a predictable feature of minerals and energy production. As workers exit key roles in downturns, knowledge gaps occur. Gaps in critical knowledge then compromise the next scale up or upturn (with negative impact on time, quality, and production value/realisation). Therefore, it’s likely that you are at risk of losing critical, hard to replace knowledge. Knowledge loss occurs when staff retire, leave projects, or move to other roles. Knowledge is lost because key knowledge is known to only a few, and not captured in policies, processes, rules and practices. This two-day, hands-on program for the minerals and energy sector provides proven practical processes to identify, keep, and benefit from your most important knowledge, across boom-bust cycles and periods of industry disruption.
