All signs point to "run"

Mopsos is worried about his future at a company in which the culture has become rather hostile to knowledge sharing of any type. No future?

Now I have a problem, and a big one. I don't see any executive in this company who would accept to be a role model for knowledge sharing in the current situation. This is no longer a period of peace - a time to learn together how to satisfy customers. This is a period of war - a time to execute orders from managers who already know what to do.

From all I have seen and read, I can't believe that a large corporate knowledge management (or community) project can work in such a hostile / fearful environment. One hope might be to find people who are interested in the idea of knowledge sharing as personal development, whether they think they will be staying with the company. Give them tools to work within the warfare.
