Knowledge Management

The nuclear industry has an ageing demographic profile, and around 20% of the workforce are either subject matter experts (a relatively small number of experts with specialist skills which take a long time to acquire) or, more commonly, in roles requiring nuclear skills (specialist skills only required in the nuclear industry). 

Effective knowledge management is about how best to identify critical people and roles and develop processes and techniques to store and transfer critical knowledge and expertise, for example between the generations of old and new employees, or between different nations, sites, departments and teams.  

Who should attend?
The course has been constructed for anyone working in the nuclear sector and its supply chain seeking to increase their awareness of knowledge management principles and method and international developments of benefit to the UK.  It is particularly relevant for HR and training professionals, heads of department, senior and middle managers.  

Delivered by:
Internationally acknowledged expert Ron Young, Knowledge Associates International, KM author, practitioner, and Chair of BSI KM Standards Committee.


The day is split into two sessions and delegates can choose to attend the full day, or the morning or afternoon session only.

  • Morning Session - What is Knowledge Management & why we need to invest in it?
  • Afternoon Session - How to implement effective Knowledge Management?

​Full details can be found in the flyer below.
