Abstract

This paper discusses the issue of succession planning for the United Kingdom (UK) Higher Education (HE) sector where there is an impending crisis due to the age distribution of staff. This paper illustrates the consequences of knowledge loss with examples taken from other sectors. Intellectual Capital contains sticky knowledge which is identified as context- and process-specific knowledge that is typically difficult to capture and transfer. Sticky knowledge in the HE sector is held by senior and soon-to-retire staff and we describe our research project into means for harvesting this knowledge.
