The Strategic Management category shown in Table 4 encompasses environmental aspects critical to managing the organization, and might be said to better represent a firm’s knowledge “flow” rather than does the knowledge “stock” category as represented by codified data, records and archives. This important category consisted of approximately 20.8% of all skills in the job descriptions. Business Development, Client Relationship Management, Risk Management, and Competitive Intelligence all relate to an organization’s ability to assess and react to information about its external environment. By combining skills in these emerging fields with knowledge management skills, knowledge professionals become very desirable for hiring organizations.
