Uncertainty Due to Innovative Personnel Turnover:
Who Leaves, Where to & Why Worry?”
Keynote Speaker: Dr.
Chaired Professor in Entrepreneurship and Strategy
Innovative personnel are an organization's most critical assets, but they are
also free to quit at will. This session will explore the uncertainties that
arise from turnover in the management of knowledge. Building off cutting edge
research in knowledge intensive sectors, the session will shed light on turnover
related issues from the perspective of both the established firm that stands to
lose valuable personnel, and also from the perspective of the aspiring
entrepreneur who may want to leave and start their own organization. For the
established firm, the session will discuss the multi-faceted strategies for
retaining key personnel, including harnessing the entrepreneurial potential of
their best employees. For the aspiring entrepreneur, the session will discuss
the opportunities (and hazards) for success when venturing out, including
creating win-win scenarios with the organizations they leave.
