This book is not meant to be an academic text on the subject of knowledge transfer, but a practical guide book designed to transfer my extensive first hand experiential knowledge about knowledge transfer operations directly to you as a leader, for use in your organization.

I have deliberately kept this book non-technical so you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to make use of it. If you apply what you learn here in a common sense way to your organization it will make your organization far more successful at what it does than an organization that doesn’t, and as a bonus it will also substantially improve human communications throughout your organization as well.

Note: While written for U.S. military leaders a large percentage of what is covered in this eBook is just as applicable to to non-military personnel and their organizations as shown in the table of contents below.
