Abstract
  • This thesis examines the role of Erikson’s (1950) theory of generativity in facilitating knowledge transfer during the preretirement transition. McAdams and de St. Aubin’s (1992) updated framework for generativity is used as a theoretical foundation to explain motivation and actions during this period. Through the use of multiple-case studies, twenty-one recently retired adults are asked to reflect on their experiences just before retirement. A cross-case analysis (Yin, 2012) provides both an in-depth examination of a single case as well as a categorical exploration of replicated cases. Implications for future retiring adults and organizations are discussed.
