Report from the top: Overview of the CKO Summit - Mary Lee Kennedy, Microsoft Director of Knowledge Network Group at the KMPro Chicago Chapter meeting 13 January 2004.
Summary: Each year some of the top CKO's from around the globe meet in Ireland for a 'CKO Summit', an opportunity to discuss issues and problems with their peers. The CKO Summits are unique, highly practical, events where knowledge professionals from organizations spend two days together sharing experiences, debating key issues and working together to formulate new strategies. It is a learning event for a community of people who are catalysts for change and a rare opportunity to spend quality time with peers wrestling with the same challenges. What did these CKO's discuss at 6th annual CKO Summit help last October?
Join us for an inside look at what this group of the globe's top knowledge professionals discussed. What were the hot issues this year? Did the group develop any new strategies?
