One thing I have been wondering is how knowledge managers spend their time. What % of time is spent doing different activities - e.g. technology implementation (ECM, Search, Collaboration, etc), community support activities (moderatoring, promoting, facilitating), organizational learning (AARs, peer assists), business research, training & development activities, etc.

Has any data around this been collected before?

(apologies for the cross-posting but it impacts all 3 lists).

ASTD produce some data concerning how training & development staff spend their time (not sure how trustworthy it is as it's from a very small sample).
