One of the leading KM professionals in the legal market has changed firms. 

Effective December 1, 2008, Oz Benamram is the Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO) at White & Case, responsible for developing and implementing the systems and processes to capture and share the firm’s collective knowledge throughout the firm.

Previously, Oz led knowledge management for many years at Morrison & Foerster. While at MoFo, Oz oversaw the development of AnswerBase, an advanced approach to KM based on Recommind. (For background on AnswerBase, see the article I helped Oz write, Lawyers As Shoppers — It’s All About Finding Information). He also was active in KM professional events and conferences. Tanisha Little, MoFo’s Knowledge Exchange Attorney, will lead the KM Department after Oz’s departure.

I am sure I speak for the entire legal KM community in wishing Oz the best in his new job. We hope he continues to innovate and remain as active professionally.
