Knowledge Management Certification: Valuable Credential or Snake Oil?

Abstract: You can get certified for just about everything these days, and knowledge management (KM) is no exception. A group called the Knowledge Management Certification Board (KMCB) has developed guidelines for certification as a CKM (Certified Knowledge Manager) or CKEE (Certified Knowledge Environmental Engineer). And NOCA (National Commission for Certifying Agencies), which accredits certifying boards for nurse practitioners, financial planners, dietitians and opticians, among others, is considering accrediting KMCB, too. It sounds impressive at first glance, but is it worth your time and money?
