From the CIO to the CKO

  • CIOs have distinct responsibilities: IT strategy, development of systems, connectivity, IT support, and general IT management.

  • Whether the individual holds the title of Best Practices Manager, CEO, or Strategic Knowledge Manager, the key role that this individual plays is still the same: to make the KM system and processes an integral part of regular, daily work.

  • Although there is often a CIO where there is a CKO, the reverse is not always true.

  • The initiatives that a CKO must take fall into four broad categories, as shown in Figure 13-2.

  • The primary task of a CKO is to enable, not control, KM.

  • Management initiatives relating to both tacit and explicit knowledge can be subclassified into two groups of tasks for a CKO: the organizational and the technical responsibilities.

  • On the technological front, a CKO needs to build channels for distribution of explicit knowledge and sharing of tacit knowledge.

The successful knowledge leader

The Successful Knowledge Leader

  • The CKO must have a fairly good understanding of the technology that will be deployed as a part of the KM system.

  • The CKO also need the skills of an effective manager and an entrepreneur.

  • A CKO needs to understand the working of the company inside out to be able to comprehend its vital process.

  • Create and see the big picture and, at the same time, translate it into tasks and concrete deliverables.


Reward structures to ensure km success

Reward Structures to Ensure KM Success

  • It’s the CKO’s responsibility to motivate employees to use and add value to the KM system and, in turn, the firm.

    • Buckman Labs

  • The knowledge leader should also consider the relative stability of employees, their jobs, and modes of working.
