About this book

As highly skilled workers retire, what happens to their wealth of experience? This book explores the concept of skills drain, looking at how key competencies can be identified and then transferred from experienced workers to novices. It looks at the innovative solutions managers are seeking to ensure that their workers are sufficiently trained, and then develops a protocol for doing so.

Founded in academic theory, but with applications for practice, this book presents case studies and research in a valuable addition to the field of management. It will be a useful reading for academics studying high-risk industries, management and organization, as well as practitioners, managers and trainers.
