This morning you received some bad news at your advertising and PR firm, which is considered one of the best in the city....?

The account manager working with your best client has resigned due to a serious illness, and you’re going to have to replace her with someone new. This client has been difficult to work with, and you’re very nervous about changing account managers so suddenly. It could jeopardize the account and send your client running to your closest competitor. Which knowledge management strategy should you use to facilitate the transition?

  a. Ask the former account manager to write a report containing everything she knows about the client and give it to the new account manager

 b. Plan a weekend retreat with the new account manager and people from the client’s organization so they can get to know each other

 c. Instruct the new account manager to research as much as possible about the new client and compile a written report

  d. Assemble your team of people, including the former account manager, who’ve been working on the account for a meeting where they can share knowledge with the new account manager

    You find the best account manager in your area and make him/her a very generous offer. Or, if it is your company, YOUR  work with the client until you can get someone to take care of the account.

    Ah, homework time.

    By the time you copied that question, posted it and are now waiting for a response that is probably given by a person younger than you and just as lazy, you would have found the correct answer in your text book or study materials
