Career Development through Knowledge Management (KM): Be a Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Your Digital Dividend Destiny.
Groff, Warren H.
Career development for the next wave of competent leaders and technically trained workers during e-globalization is one of the most difficult challenges advanced nations face. Career development programs that begin in elementary education and have e-paradigms as a logical choice as the preferred scenario are needed by e-commerce in all its variations, health informatics and medical informatics, and an array of new careers in biotechnology, the Human Genome Project, and other fields. Knowledge managers and chief information officers are critical to viability in the private sector and equally essential at all levels of education in this communications revolution. These four steps are involved in being a chief information officer for digital dividends: (1) analyze the four initial questions (What are your personal career development interests and strengths? What awareness do you have about changes of business, engineering, education, or healthcare? What understandings are critical for these careers? and What cognitive, financial, and other outcomes do you hope to achieve from your activities?) and vision for your career; (2) critique progress you are making against that ideal; (3) know what knowledge management action plan you will create during the Summer Institute to realize a satisfactory return on investment; and (4) apply knowledge management concepts to your career development so you will experience part of the role of a chief information officer.
