The Knowledge Management Practitioners’ Group (KMPG) was founded in 2000 in Johannesburg South Africa and has since spread globally. The aim of the group is to share knowledge and experience of how practical knowledge sharing and management can be successful in organisations. The group is non profit and open to everyone who wishes to share and learn. Their mission is to continuously improve the skills of knowledge managers, and to elevate the profile of knowledge management as a profession globally. Since the roots are African, it focuses on knowledge sharing on the African continent.
