- Are organizational learning and knowledge management merging together?
- Developing Knowledge Leadership
Dr. Dede Bonner describes the most critical organizational conditions necessary to move Chief Learning Officer (CLO) and Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO) positions from the “nice to have” to the “need to have” category.
Dr. Bonner will describe what CLOs and CKOs really do, what their CEOs expect of them, and why these professions are predicted to grow. She will also describe the lessons learned from “grass-roots” CLOs and CKOs who have successfully used skills and tools in organizational learning and knowledge management despite a lack of formal job titles or official sanctions.
By profiling CLO/CKOs’ key roles and responsibilities, Dr. Bonner will challenge you to consider how to make these exciting new professions a reality in your own organization.

How to identify the key barriers that keep your company from learning. Ways to raise consciousness about new learning and knowledge imperatives.
