World class thinker
by Susanne Hasulo

This article is an interesting interview with Dr Nick Bontis - an assistant professor of strategic management at the Michael G. DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University in in Hamilton, Ontario. He is a leading thinker on Intellectial Capital.

Here is what is says on the role of the CKO :

A CKO's main task is to evangelize the principles of knowledge sharing. There will be a certain point when that message, the technology, the infrastructure, the policies, the procedures, will all be in place. It may take you four, five, six years but at some point they will all be in play, at which point you should remove yourself from that position because all the ideals of KM have now been resonated and percolated throughout the organization. Ultimately, a CKO's job should be to fire himself.
