Jane is elated. The Board approved her proposal and Rockfish budgeted for a new KM or CKO to join her team, initially. While the department idea is not being funded right now Rockfish thinks that in a year they may be able to increase the budget to fund the department. In the meantime, Jane can get a Km person on board and they can begin to create a KM plan. To this end Jane (you) is excited to write a short memo to the head of HR, containing a job description for the position for GDD’s new KM or CKO. In your memo, you will include the following information as well as the reasons behind the choices. This information will help HR to screen the applications before sending them to Jane:
- The function you expect a KM or CKO to fill and their contribution to running an effective and sustainable contemporary business environment;
- The job tasks they would perform;
- The KM skills you want your KM/CKO to have immediately;
- The skills required to address future KM trends; and
- An explanation of the reasons for wanting a person with these skills for GDD.
