The next wave of economic recovery for your company will come from your SMEs (Subject Matter Experts).  In the 21st Century smart companies are leveraging the inventiveness, ingenuity, creativity, and “tricks of the trade” to be found in their remaining workforce nearly five years after the financial crisis of 2008.  This is your final warning: In order to ride the next wave of economic growth, to shorten the learning curves and expand market share, you need to access the assets available to you.  Many of the skills, knowledge and abilities – SKAs – you need now are already available in your SMEs. 

On a list of executive-related business issues, your biggest company concern for 2015 is filling the skills-gap by leveraging the talent from your SMEs. [, Feb.11, 2014].

Your inability to attract, retain and develop the talent from your SMEs will hurt your pace for providing continual improvement, defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain at your company.

Recruit your SMEs to deliver training.  Your SMEs possess the highest level of SKAs for specialized jobs in your company.  Invest in your SMEs by providing them a Train the Trainer System.  As more companies streamline their budgets, they will need their SMEs to create wealth. 

Key Outcomes:

  • How to shrink the widening skills gap with your SMEs.
  • How to capitalize on and maximize the talent from your SMEs.
  • How to calculate future earnings from your SMEs.
