Effective Knowledge Transfer is an untapped wellspring.

Capture knowledge from departing experts, dramatically improve safety and supercharge your training with Todd Hudson’s innovative methods.

Tap into the Hidden Benefits of Knowledge Transfer

While managing operations for large companies, I quickly realized that one of the biggest obstacles to organizational success is ineffective knowledge transfer. 

I’ve always been a big fan of both innovation and continuous improvement, so I began experimenting with knowledge transfer methods, eventually pioneering the application of Lean to training and creating new methods to embed safety knowledge and retain knowledge from departing experts. 

My results have surpassed even my own expectations, in some cases achieving millions of dollars in savings and loss prevention as well as unimagined levels of efficiency, productivity and workforce happiness. 

I founded the Maverick Institute to bring my innovations for knowledge transfer and training to organizations of all sizes. 

There’s nothing I like better than a new knowledge transfer challenge. Want to see how my maverick thinking can help your organization? Give me a holler.

The Great Training Robbery

I’d love to take credit for this provocative title, but, sadly, I can’t. This phrase was first used 45 years ago when a study showing little or no relationship between training and work performance was published. Most recently, it was used this past August for the...
