The problem with ‘certified’ Knowledge Management training

Abstract: I want to be clear at the outset of this blog that this is not an attempt to discredit any organisation involved in KM education. It is intended as a statement of observation that looks to pose questions on the progression of professional KM education.

Let me ask you this: Would you hire a finance manager without a CPA qualification? Would you have the confidence in their competence? I’ll take a guess that your answer is, probably not! I am not suggesting for a moment that KM can be governed in the same way as the public accounting field. My aim is to highlight the fact that perhaps more attention needs to be given to the education and experience required to work in the KM field.
