Eric Hoffer And Knowledge Managers

In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists” – Eric Hoffer

As I read this, I get a eerie feeling that this is exactly what will happen to the traditional “knowledge manager” community. I really think this role has to quickly morph into one that moves away from “managing” knowledge to enabling knowledge flows and facilitating conversations within and across organizational boundaries.

I’m seeing a disconnect between Gen X/Gen Y employees and knowledge managers and their strategies. This is very similar to the gap between students and faculty when it comes to the use of social media.

KM as we know it is a world that no longer exists !!
