Thanks Graeme, I will take a look.
Many thanks for your reply. I will forward your details onto my training manager.
I am not sure of your exact requirement but you might also be interested in some of the services my company offers. KorteQ (www.korteq.com) is a specialist Knowledge Management consultancy and we have previously conducted 'knowledge mapping' style activities to establish what people might need to know in order to fulfil a specific role or function. Developing this further we have used 'competency scoping' to identify knowledge gaps / risks across whole departments and organisations.
If you would like to know more then please do get in touch.
