What is Legacy Forge?

Every organization has its legacy leaders – those who have been the company's backbone, holding invaluable knowledge and experience. As critical players leave your business, the challenge is ensuring that this wealth of knowledge doesn't walk out the door with them. Enter Legacy Forge's online course curriculum – a meticulously designed program to ensure a smooth transition and knowledge transfer during employee turnover.

Our Legacy Forge process is built on the premise that sharing domain knowledge is an integral part of an employee's responsibility. While the knowledge remains the intellectual property of the individual, the organization has the prerogative to request its transfer. Our program assists HR professionals and team leads in this crucial process, ensuring that the organization's momentum continues unhindered.
