Increasing complexity in the business world causes changes in the concept of value creation, measures for success and sustainability. More attention is given to the critical human resources for reducing the risks of managerial decisions. The right knowledge worker in the right place is not anymore just accumulating, sharing and using the knowledge. As the technology evolves and the ecological risks increase critical role integrates the individual and collaborative skills to learn and innovate by converting the social network connections and feedbacks into value. This study analyses the skills and expectations of these critical roles and proposes a discussion on success measures of the Knowledge Cultivator. The suggested frameworks will facilitate evaluating the performance of Knowledge Cultivator. This new vision will be beneficial for managers, human resource experts, and educators.
