Knowledge Transfer in the Virtual World

What practical tools can Millennials and Gen-Zs use to accelerate their own learning to increase productivity and preserve technical and process knowledge essential for improving performance? This talk, customized for your industry and target audience, provides tools and tactics that can be used immediately to solve the most pressing and vexing knowledge transfer challenges.
