Managing a knowledge centre first of all requires the willingness to actively listen to and learn from experts, to challenge and encourage them in the pursuit of their ideas, to lift all practical barriers and to be around when something tends to go wrong.

Managing a knowledge centre also involves the readiness to listen to the stakeholders to discover and understand their needs and expectations, to balance these out and shape the organization accordingly.

Managing a knowledge centre finally demands a passion for technology and innovative breakthroughs and the readiness to keep up with the ever increasing speed of promising possibilities.
