Extract Your Brilliance
Brilliance Extraction™ Extracts Critical Knowledge Out Of the Heads of Key People
All successful and grown companies have unique expertise. Yet, most of that expertise lives in the heads of key people. It goes to bed at night, goes on vacation, retires someday, or moves on to another company.
Sure, some of it may be documented, but chances are, you have a gold mine of knowledge, expertise, and competencies that would add to the profitability and value of your company.
Sooner or later the loss of critical knowledge puts the sustainability of your company in danger. At the very least, it drives up costs and reduces profits.
Key knowledge "trapped" in the heads of key people causes challenges that you are likely not aware of or do not have a solution for:
- Key people can barely get away from work, even vacations are stressful, leading to burnout
- The company has a hard time to grow and scale-up. Growth is limited to the level the key people can handle
- The company is harder to sell/pass on. If you do sell, you are likely to sell for less than you expected - in many cases, a lot less
So, what is the answer?
Leverage Your Brilliance
Brilliance Extraction™ Leverages Your Intellectual Capital
Brilliance Extraction™ is our proven process for extracting critical expertise out of the heads of your key people, including the company's principles.
We call that your intellectual capital. It is an intangible, yet often overlooked asset. It is not book learning or patented intellectual property. It is what people learn over time on the job, e.g.,
- Poorly documented ways of doing important work - processes, training, policies
- What can go wrong, how to avoid it, how to fix it (trouble-shooting)
- Relationships with clients, vendors, collaborators, banks
- Execution of critical functions including marketing, HR, and others
Brilliance Extraction™ pulls this knowledge out of your subject matter experts and leaders without bogging them down. In fact, the results make their jobs easier and more productive.
From there, the information is made even more systematic and is converted into training systems, procedures and policies that make life easier and bring clarity. We call that the Systematizer™.
Your critical knowledge, when extracted and systematized, becomes your online company training "university" and elevates the value of your company.
Brilliance Extraction™ is a Swift Process with Measurable ROI
We make intangible assets tangible. Leverage your expertise and make it immortal.
