Knowledge Management Practitioners Group (KMPG)*Custom logo

The Knowledge Management Practitioners Group (KMPG or KM Practioners), formerly the Knowledge Management Practitioners Group of South Africa (KMPG South Africa), 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.
