Developing your personal knowledge base

Overview

Last Published  01 August 2012

The development of a relevant knowledge base on the part of the leader is becoming increasingly important as the complexity of the organisations for which strategic leaders are responsible increases. At the more strategic levels, it is easy for a leader to take his or her knowledge base for granted, and this tool ensures that the leader is both aware of the knowledge base and aware that he or she continues to develop familiarity with key issues relating to the organisation and the nature of strategic leadership. This tool is useful for the full range of organisations, from small to large.

Tool aims
  • To encourage participants to identify the knowledge base they require for their current role
  • To acquaint participants with the key issues regarding knowledge required by the strategic leader
  • To create a plan for developing their personal knowledge base.
