Knowledge Retention Systems

“Intelligence is not knowledge, but the ability to organize and employ knowledge” Cyril Albert Richardson 1922

Lets face it. The acquisition of knowledge is very expensive. School fees, university fees, and training costs. All of them are an expensive investment.

As an employer it is imperative that  staff that can learn and retain new skills and apply them in the workplace, but it is costly and often wasted.

It has been proven that unless people are constantly reminded they forget. Only about 30% of what is taught is retained ( if you are lucky), and if we were to relate that to money, it really is an awful waste of a lot of cash.

So for example:

Lets say we send someone on a course for the day…..
Cash spent on training for a 1 day course – R 1000.00
Knowledge retained – 30% = R 300.00 worth of value
If we could improve the knowledge retention we would be improving the value.
If knowledge retention goes up to 60% then the value we would have from the course would now be R 600.00 not just R 300.00 and what a huge difference that makes to ROI and the bottom line.
