Case study

Westinghouse Electric Company​

Aiding knowledge transfer in a resurging industry


Westinghouse Electric Company is the world’s leading supplier of safe, innovative nuclear technology. Following a nearly three-decade dormant period, the nuclear renaissance in the 2000s opened significant opportunities for WEC. But the renaissance also presented the challenge of transferring the hard-earned expertise of a few to a brand new and expanding workforce of many.


Over the course of a 5-year program, Perigean Technologies implemented our Expertise Management program – eliciting specialized knowledge of scores of the company’s Franchise Experts, preparing products to enable learning for the next-generation, and growing an organic capability to continue the program beyond our tenure.


Our WEC partners reported that the program was able to “ease the technology transfer process of these retiring experts, the groups they work for, and specifically for those who will carry on to become the new experts.”
