Introduction and objective

The research proposal will describe and cover how knowledge can managed and transferred to national employees in the public sectors. This research will lead as to answer the question, which is, what can be done to help public sector employees take the leap and move to private sectors.

The concept and vocabulary of knowledge management is hard to define. Different people understand the concept of managing and transferring knowledge differently and few can define it in measurable terms. "Knowledge transfer is more than just on-the-job training. It is the planned movement of the right skills and information at the right time to keep a workforce prepared, productive, innovative, and competitive" (Trautman).In the present economy, knowledge is an important organizational asset, which means that expertise must be transferred and shared among units.

Even though it's important to understand the concept of transferring knowledge, the sharing of information within organizations remains a challenge. This research proposal shows that transferring knowledge has significantly impact on improving the employees' ability and productivity. In addition it will focus on understating the concept of transferring knowledge through generating general focus question that will help us in implementing this research. Therefor, the question that this research is trying to answers is "how can knowledge be transferred to national employees in the public sector.
