In the Knowledge Management Consultants LinkedIn Group Deonie B. asks:
Knowledge management: a hobby or a career? Someone commented to me that “anyone can do KM and that you certainly do not need a qualification to be a KM professional”. I have a doctorate in KM and has lectured it for many years to many promising young individuals pursuing careers as qualified Knowledge managers in companies of various sizes. I have always believed that a qualification is a non-negotiable as for any other profession however, I am starting to doubt my (strong) view and are keen to hear the opinions of qualified and non-qualified Knowledge managers.
