International Journal of Human Resources Development and Management, 2009, vol. 9, issue 2/3, 300-304

Abstract: The Leaving Expert Debriefing (LXD) is a planning and conducting process for knowledge transfer from a Leaving Expert (LX) to a successor(s). Various knowledge transfer and development actions for different shapes of knowledge are typically defined as focused on strategic business-critical knowledge areas. Additionally, the transfer is executed and controlled via the LXD process. An LXD process model is presented and some steps are described in detail. Two real, quite contrary LX issues are discussed and experience from many LXD moderations is shared.
