Ownership of the Knowledge Management Function In an interview with Alakh Asthana of eClerx Services, Dr. Madanmohan Rao talks about where the ownership of KM rests. Madan explains that the KM story in an organization usually starts when some group of mid or top level managers hear about KM and initiate implementation. The moment the practice is institutionalized -- it raises the question of ownership. Diverse organizational cultures and structures influence ownership of the KM function. Madan further elaborates his point by explaining that departmentalization depends on the level of knowledge management baked into the tasks of the workforce and the organization's core competency. In organizations where value generated from KM is substantial, the CKO (Chief Knowledge Officer) is positioned along with a team to navigate the knowledge strategy. In the absence of a CKO, other departments may shoulder KM. Madan further explains that many organizations may think that knowledge is closely linked with information and hence the ownership should lie with the CIO (Chief Information Officer). In a technology centric organization the CTO (Chief Technology Officer) may act as the CKO. Companies focusing on capability building and continuous learning may integrate it with the learning or HR division to help create competitive advantages for the future. Madan summarizes the interview by noting that usually the department that initiates the practice ends up owning and managing it.
Great American Yard Sale Sells Out Over 20000 Customers Shopped til They Dropped: The sun was shining on the Fox Valley Mall Parking lot Saturday morning as excited shoppers lined up to finally enter The Great American Yard Sale. All of the money earned from the Sale will go to five local charities that work directly with homeless families. Over 600 tables were piled with donated merchandise from various cities and towns in the Chicago land area. When asked what was being sold, Rudy Krueger, a founder of the Great American Yard Sale, said to "Go to a Sears store, and you'll figure it out. It's all departmentalized like Sears and it's just packed with stuff." Furniture, bicycles, refrigerators, Christmas decorations, baby clothing, even workout equipment could be found under the huge array of white tents. The event began 20 years ago when David Jordan, an editor of Better Homes and Gardens, attended a real estate convention that Rudy was at. "He told us how many people were homeless-over half a million at that time. We started this kind of program on a tiny scale," recalls Rudy. Since then, the Sale has grown into such a large event that they've had to switch locations to accommodate for all the customers. This inspiring story would not have been possible without all of the volunteers helping out year after year. Tammy Morris, a resident of Tomah, Wisconsin, use to live in the area and returns each summer with her family to volunteer. "There are a lot of people that we only get to see once a year, all the ...

Martinique/The Overseas region of France 1943, Martinique was officially pro-Vichy, with the US and Great Britain seeking to limit any impact of that stance on the war. The US did prepare plans for an invasion by an expeditionary force to capture the island, and at various times the US and Britain established blockades. For instance, from July to November 1940, the British cruisers HMS Trinidad and HMS Dunedin maintained a watch to ensure that the French aircraft carrier Bearn and the other French naval vessels in Martinique did not slip away to Europe.In June 1940, the French cruiser Émile Bertin arrived in Martinique with 286 tons of gold from the Bank of France. The original intent was that Bank's gold reserve go to Canada for safekeeping, and a first shipment did go there. When France signed an armistice with Germany, plans changed and the second shipment was rerouted to Martinique. When it arrived in Martinique, Admiral Robert arranged for the storage of the gold in Fort Desaix. Émile Bertin then stayed at Fort de France until Martinique declared for Charles DeGaulle and the Free French forces. Essentially, in late 1941, Admiral Robert agreed to keep the French naval vessels immobilized, in return for the Allies not bombarding and invading the French Antilles.In mid-1943, Admiral Robert returned to France via Puerto Rico and Lisbon, and Free French sympathizers took control of the gold at Fort Desaix and the French fleet.In 1944, the American film director Howard Hawks directed Humphrey Bogart, Lauren ...
