Abstract:   (325 Views)
Background. Choisir de Gagner is a Quebec (Canada) company associated to AlterGo and Défi sportif. Its mission is to promote a healthy lifestyle for youth with disabilities.
Objectives. This article analyzes this organization, especially its strengths and weaknesses of its environments.
Methods. The study took place over a three-year period, from 2012-2015. The first two data collections (2012-2013 and 2013-2014) aimed at analyzing the organization’s internal components. In reference to these results, the third collection’s goal (2015) was to analyze the transfer of knowledge that was developed during the organization’s mandate.
Results. Moreover, following the first data collection, a few weaknesses were identified regarding time management and the decision-making process. With regard to these results, certain adjustments were made in the organization which have led to a considerable improvement if we rely on the results from the second data collection. At the end of the article, the organization’s external communication is specifically examined by an analysis of the transfer of knowledge. Several tools have been elaborated by the organization between 2012 and 2015.
Conclusion. The main issues with respect to these tools are the respect and follow-up of each stage of the transfer process in order to ensure its sustainability.

APPLICABLE REMARKS
• Within an organization, the hierarchy between management and employees plays a major role. It is important to implement a decision-making process in order to make each person’s role clear and understandable.
• Sound and effective communication with the operational center (stakeholders and coordinators), within the strategic summit (managers), and between the two (line of command), remains fundamental in any organization. It is relevant to provide follow-up.
• It is important to make available and accessible the knowledge developed within the organization, especially in order to improve 
action. Respect for each step of the transfer of knowledge process remains essential.
