In March 2001, the Assistant Deputy Minister (Human Resources – Military) announced the stand up of an external Human Resources Advisory Board (HRAB) to act as a forum for discussion of human resources issues in Canada, and how they may impact on the Canadian Forces (CF) today and in the future. The presentations and discussions at the fourth meeting of the board in May 2003 focused on issues related to the changing nature of the workplace in Canada and the role of knowledge management, with a particular focus on education, diversity and medical trends in the CF and Canada. Board recommendations highlighted the potential significance of integrating HR planning and all HR initiatives into a knowledge management framework; the potential value and contribution of diversity to social cohesion and operational effectiveness; the importance of defining and creating an effective balance of competencies, skills and credentials; and the potential impact that changing contexts of knowledge creation and information ownership will have on CF policy and strategy in the future. This report provides an overview of the meeting presentations and discussions, followed by an analysis of key ideas and recommendations for enhancing CF strategy in meeting future workplace and operational challenges.
