"With the first wave of boomers now reaching retirement age, the Federal government is facing a huge loss of knowledge and senior executive expertise. Dr. Jay Liebowitz provides a groundbreaking study of what these risks mean and how some agencies are meeting their human capital crisis. This is a 'must read' book for every human resources professional, federal senior executive, and knowledge management guru. If there is a solution to be found to this demographic brain-drain, you will find it in this book." -- Dr. Shereen G. Remez, Director of Knowledge Management, AARP; Former Chief Knowledge Office (GSA) "Addressing the Human Capital Crisis in the Federal Government is an important guide for federal agencies who truly want to be relevant and of service to the public in the 21st Century." -- G. Lee Salmon, Executive Coaching Program Manager, Federal Consulting Group, U.S. Department of Treasury "Liebowitz offers a leading resource for government executives struggling with very real human capital issues. Jay has made an important and timely contribution to the government and to the Knowledge Management field." -- Alex Bennet, Co-Founder, Mountain Quest Institute; Former Chief Knowledge Officer for the U.S. Department of Navy "Losing talent, or worse, not using what you have effectively, is something most organisations do not adequately address. This book offers four practical pillars that help you maximise the benefits from your most important, and often most expensive, resource - your people." - David J.
