KM Certification and the Wizard of Oz Effect

Abstract: There are three benefits to KM Certification:

  • Setting yourself up as a certifier to get money ($1K per student in some cases) or ensure your future employment/funding by making folks come to you for certification
  • Looking good to your friends, neighbors, future employers, or anyone else who is clueless as to real Knowledge Management
  • To make you seem as if you are an expert in something for your own self-assurance

This is what I call the Wizard of Oz effect.
