93. Help people work smarter. Schedule ''Knowledge Circles''76

A "Knowledge Circle" is a way to share one's knowledge and experience with others. Short, 1-10 minute, presentations are made at these meetings to pass along tips, shortcuts, new ideas, significant findings, or any other information that would help people in the group do their job better or faster. There can be several presenters at one meeting, and they can be drawn from within or outside of your organisation. To be effective, the presentations should be followed by group discussion. Schedule your Knowledge Circles on a regular basis, say once per month, to make them a part of your routine in-house continuing education system. If and when your group runs out of useful information to share, call the Knowledge Circles off ast for awhile.
