Introduction knowledge economy

Introduction : Knowledge Economy

"The basic economic resource - the means of production - is no longer capital, nor natural resources, nor labor. It is and will be knowledge".


Problem at strategic level

PROBLEM at Strategic Level

  • What is the first step toward survival in a new business environment, one ruled by intellectual capital?


Strategic problem details

Strategic Problem Details

Very few individuals understand intellectual capital, and almost no one has been able, formally at least, to put a value on it .

This is very difficult because “Knowledge” is somehow intangible, so how can an organization maximize the returns on investment in knowledge?


Strategic solution knowledge management

Strategic Solution : Knowledge Management

That’s why KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT (KM)–

how an organization makes use of its intellectual capital–is one of the greatest challenges facing senior managers today.


Challenges ceo

Challenges CEO

  • CEOs are responsible for justifying the value of knowledge constantly being developed in their organizations : from the capture, codification and dissemination of information, to the acquisition of new competencies through training and development, to the re-engineering of business processes.


Managing intangible assets

Managing Intangible Assets ?

  • Present and future success will be more on the strategic management of knowledge assets.

  • This means that the capacity to manage knowledge is a critical skill, and perhaps the critical skill of this era.

The emerging role of the chief knowledge officer cko

The emerging role of the chief knowledge officer (CKO)

  • A chief knowledge officer (CKO) is an organizational leader, responsible for ensuring that the organization maximizes the value it achieves through "knowledge".

  • CKOs can help an organization maximize the returns on investment in knowledge (people, processes and intellectual capital), exploit their intangible assets (know-how, patents, customer relationships), repeat successes, share best practices, improve innovation, and avoid knowledge loss after organizational restructuring.


Future value and job security of the cko placement position

Future value–and job security–of the CKO placement/position


Responsibilities of the cko

responsibilities of the CKO

  • Collecting relevant data that is useful for the organization as knowledge (extensive business experience needed to be able to determine which info is worth sharing )

  • Developing an overall framework that guides knowledge management

  • Actively promoting the knowledge agenda within and beyond the company

  • Overseeing the development of the knowledge infrastructure

  • Facilitating connections, coordination and communications.


Requirements for a succesful cko

Requirements for a succesful CKO

The CKOs claimed that in order to succeed in the future, they would need

  • more slack time for dreaming, thinking and talking,

  • more high-level support from CEOs and board members.


Cko characteristics

CKO Characteristics

  • Highly educated

  • Already a seasoned organizational performer and chosen for the knowledge management position based on their proven performance

  • A “researcher” … seeks new knowledge, likes to learn

  • Attracted to “being at the forefront of something new and exciting”

  • Motivated more by a challenge than by formal power

  • Receives intrinsic rewards from helping others … some altruism and/or evangelism

  • A risk-taker … sometimes a maverick

  • Sees knowledge management as a way to “make a mark within the organization”.
