Core competencies after KM training #roles #certification #learning


Ivan Orozco
 

Hello Everyone,
I am in the process of justifying the deployment of KM course. I appreciate if some of you can provide me with a short list of core competences to be achieved by participants after receiving the course.
Thanks,
Ivan

Hello Ivan,
What is your course about?  Are you teaching KM Implementation, How to facilitate tacit knowledge exchanges, How to manage community of practice, or what is KM and how do we apply it at work?  A KM course can address all sorts of KM activities.  What will yours cover?

Warm Regards,

Ivan,

I agree with Karla that it is difficult to list desired compentencies without knowing course design and purpose. But suffice it to say, in the end, your goal will be to develop compentency in one (or more) of the following four levels:

1. Know what

2. Know how

3. Know why

4. Care why

Obviously level one is the easiest to obtain leading to level four, the most difficult.

Regards,

Don Kildebeck

Karla,

Good questions, hard to cover everything as KM is a broad topic and perceived differently depending on your own background.  I am in the process of organising a discussion event through Melbourne KMLF to assess what should be taught in KM courses. Panel of academics who do this on one side and a panel of business people on the other facilitated by a KM practitioner who teaches part time.

Interested to know thoughts on what you want from a "KM course" (I am targeting 36 contact hours at postgraduate level, but open to any comments)

Dear Ivan,

 

Core competencies can be defined, but only if the role is defined.

Are you talking about CKO level, KM Coordinator, or K Workers as part of a KM Awareness Series™?

Hi Ivan

It depends on your objectives for the course, the start point for the participants, and what you expect them to be able to do afterwards. KM is a vast and unwieldy domain - the literature on competencies for KM is small but substantial - see http://knowledgebucket.wik.is/Competencies - I would normally start with the Abell and Oxbrow book referenced there.

Bear in mind that "competency" means both knowledge and skill, and it's unlikely that classroom-based training does much in the skill-building portion, unless you have longer programs with practical applications of the knowledge, and some form of directed skill building support.

Ermmm.... Douglas... what's with the ? Isn't it a bit of an overkill to claim a trademark on a perfectly normal string of English words?


By the way, didn't you say you would share the curriculum of your CKM program for Wider Professional Scrutiny

Dave,
 
I'd be happy to post curriculum for peer review upon return from Korea and UK next week - connectivity issues here v-v attachments.

Its taken this discussion long enough to get to the point! First, I think
it is essential that we be able to describe the core competencies for a KM
professional and I don't believe it matters as to the course being taught.
Competencies and courses are two different issues. Courses should address
at least some competencies, but we should be able to articulate KM
competencies regardless of course.

To start this discussion, I believe the core competencies include:

Ability to articulate what KM and knowledge are and how they can help an
organization

Ability to develop a KM strategy that articulates goals, needs for
knowledge, users of knowledge, sources of knowledge, and how knowledge will be
captured, stored, and transferred.

Ability to design (and to some degree implement) various KM Systems to
support needed KM goals

Ability to understand, articulate, and address key issues affecting KM such
as security, measurement, new technologies, innovation, etc.

Ability to design and implement measurement systems for determining KM
success and other identified KM goals

Ability to evaluate new technologies for fit with an organization's systems
and KM systems

Ability to communicate KM to all levels of the organization

Ability to assess organizational processes for KM, to support the process
and/or capture knowledge from the process

Ability to lead KM initiatives

There are probably more but this is what strikes me as core competencies.
The course I teach is designed to get MBA students to understand KM and to
possibly lead and/or participate in a KM initiative. The objectives of
this course are:

Identify and define Knowledge Management terms and concepts
Define and discuss what knowledge is including tacit, explicit, and
organizational knowledge
Define what a Knowledge Management System is and is not
Define Organizational Memory and Organizational Learning and discuss their
relationship to Knowledge Management
Discuss the Knowledge Life Cycle

Explain how Knowledge Management impacts an organization
Discuss how Knowledge Management applications such as Customer
Relationship Management, Supply Chain Management, and Data Warehousing impact
organizational effectiveness
Discuss how Knowledge Management can improve organizational and individual
decision making

Describe how to build and implement a Knowledge Management System
Discuss technologies used in Knowledge Management such as Web Portals,
XML, Ontologies, Taxonomies, and Topic Maps
Discuss the functions and goals of a Knowledge Management System
Discuss knowledge repositories with respect to structure and codification
schemes
Describe recommendations from research as to the construction of a
Knowledge Management System

Explain Knowledge Management/Knowledge Management System Success
Discuss the need for measuring KM/KMS success
List and describe KM/KMS Success Factors
List and describe KM/KMS Effectiveness Models

Identify and Discuss issues affecting Knowledge Management
Describe issues affecting knowledge transfer, flow, and use in
organizations
Describe the impact of Knowledge Management strategy on KM and KMS success
Describe how Knowledge Management System use and knowledge re-use impacts
KM and KMS success
Describe how Communities of Practice implement KM

I hope this helps get this discussion rolling! Thanks...murray

Patrick Lambe has asked for the KM Institute Certification Program
curriculum.
Importantly, all students both attend the week-long workshop and get a
two-DVD interactive video set of the entire course for pre- and post-workshop
review and study. The complete content is equivalent to about 2.5 workshop
weeks or two 3-semester hour university courses.
Here is content outline:

Blended KM Certification Program Workshop (eCKM™) Outline
How to Perform KM – This KM Certification Program is for serious
practitioners who aspire to be KM leaders.
Theme I – Advanced KM Essentials/Rationale includes rigorous, practical
KM (KM414), the rationale for KM, and role of the KM leader, we call the
Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO).
In Theme II (KM423), we Create and Study the KMBOK™ Methodology, a robust,
proven approach to enterprise KM.
Theme III (KM434) tracks thru that methodology, learning how to “Perform KM
”, including specific steps such as benchmarking, knowledge
audits/mapping, Knowledge Age vision, strategies, and how to “Get Started” and commence
change management.
Theme IV (KM444) is start of Life-Long Learning Program – Special Topics
and techniques are surveyed: metrics, storytelling, Social Networks, KM
Technology, Personal KM, CoPs, etc. The complete content is equivalent to three
workshop weeks, but it is delivered in a blended approach, a mix of
pre-requisite e-learning, face-to-face workshop, and post-workshop, interactive
video E-Learning modules.

Theme One: Advanced KM Essentials/Rationale (12 Modules)
eCKM1.01 – Team Intro, Workshop Approach & Content
Abstract: Meet your Mentor and team mates. Review the “Knowledge Givers”
(characters) and what you will learn during your study of the four CKM
themes. “Learn-by-doing” two innovation techniques.
· Exercise – Learn/Apply Gossamer
Albatross Technique – Build KM Workbook
· Exercise – Learn/Apply After Action
Review Technique – Perform Daily Reviews
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.01 and review any supplemental reading
materials, time permitting
eCKM1.02 – Understand Knowledge in Four Eras (Greek, Medieval,
Industrial/Scientific, Modern)
Abstract: Knowledge has been defined quite differently throughout the
ages. This module provides an historical perspective on knowledge (Western and
non-Western) and in particular, the evolution of the concept of knowledge –
Greek, Medieval, Industrial, and Modern Eras. This historical
perspective enables you to define the concept of knowledge for modern organizations
and to gain the requisite personal credibility in your KM leadership role.

· Exercise – Compare the Concept of
Knowledge Thought by Civilization
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.02. Complete exercise; answers provided
in the workshop.
eCKM1.03 – Define Knowledge in Modern Era
Abstract: This module contrasts the most popular and practical definitions
of knowledge in our modern era. Four themes include: the definition of
knowledge can be very personal based on personal perspectives; the ubiquitous
nature of knowledge; how to relate the concept of action to differentiate
knowledge from data and information; and diverse knowledge attributes (25)
that promote real understanding.
· Exercise – Analyze Knowledge Attributes
– Determine Importance
· Exercise – Define Knowledge for your
Environment
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.03
eCKM1.04 – Understand Knowledge Modes (Understand Implications of Tacit &
Explicit)
Abstract: This module focuses on an important knowledge attribute: Mode –
tacit and explicit knowledge. The Nonaka & Takeuchi model shows the
knowledge conversion dynamics for tacit and explicit knowledge. This
tacit/explicit understanding enables you to design integrated KM solutions covered in
CKM1.07 – “Connect & Collect”.
· Exercise – Identify K Conversion
Categories for Various KM Initiatives
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.04
eCKM1.05 – Understand Knowledge Episodes & Processes
Abstract: Medieval scholars thought all knowledge was known with knowledge
flow from the more knowing to less knowing. A modern view emphasizes
two-way flow between both more and less knowing individuals, with hopeful
creation of new knowledge at every iteration. This module provides understanding
of knowledge flow – KM Episodes and Knowledge Life Cycle - acquisition,
production/creation and integration/use of knowledge throughout an
organization.
· Exercise – Define Knowledge Processes
Embedded in Enterprise Processes
· Exercise – Create “No Budget” KM
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.05
eCKM1.06 – Understand New Knowledge Paradigm
Abstract: This module studies a new knowledge paradigm “to get the best
knowledge to the right person at just the right time to perform an activity
(make decision, etc.).” The implications of the new knowledge paradigm are
extensive. This module will insure you understand them and how you apply
them to your KM Initiatives.
· Exercise – Implications of New
Knowledge Paradigm in Enterprise Processes
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.06
eCKM1.07– Envision the KM Endgame
Abstract: You must be able to explain where KM is headed based
understanding the conflicting characteristics of primary attributes – tacit/explicit
knowledge and learned KM Principles. “Connect” & “Collect” depicts the KM
Endgame vision, a culture of collaboration/knowledge sharing. This insight
will benefit your own KM Initiatives.
· Exercise – Types of Knowledge
References Needed in the “Books of Knowledge”
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.07
eCKM1.08 – Understand Basic KM Theory and Models
Abstract: Models are powerful tools to depict KM theory. This module
studies many models, including: Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM), and impact of
knowledge modes and absorptive capacity for various process model types.
· Exercise – Invent KM Initiative for
Core Processes – tacit/explicit, routineness, absorptive capacity.
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.08
eCKM1.09 – Define KM
Abstract: Traditionally practitioners are surveyed to see what they do.
But, KM is still in formative stage. Surveying what is being done doesn’t
prove what needs to be done. In this module we define KM by other means, e.g.,
KM Endgame and by studying best available KM definitions. Understanding
the nature of fads, frameworks, methodologies, the KMBOK™, and standards
helps. There is no perfect definition of KM, but you will be able define KM for
diverse audiences.
· Exercise – Itemize KM Definition
Components
· Exercise – Define KM for your CEO
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.09
eCKM1.10 – Build KM Rationale – Why Manage Knowledge Now, Case Studies
and ultimate business case proof
Abstract: If a definition of KM is important, the rationale justifying KM
is even more important. This module proves the merits of KM by discussing
authoritative backing, critical problems (hot buttons) addressed by KM, some
success stories as case studies, and the business intelligence model that
proves the need to convert customer information assets into revenue streams
through applied knowledge. “Why manage knowledge now?” You will know the
answer.
· Exercise – Define KM Implications for
Commoditization/Customization Model
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.10
eCKM1.11 – Understand Role of CKO – Competencies, Keys/Barriers to
Success
Abstract: We derive the role of KM practitioners from what needs to be
done based on research by experts, especially the role of the CKO, requisite
competencies and skills, and the KM Imperative. The “Hype Curve” and
Cautions and Barriers to Success are studied. You will understand your career
opportunities.
· Exercise – Develop "Trough of
Disillusionment" Countermeasures
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.11
eCKM1.12 – Theme One Assessment
Abstract: Assessment of Theme I mastery.



Theme Two: Create/Study KMBOK™ (10 Modules)
Study Read-Ahead Materials – Theme II, time permitting.
eCKM2.01 – Create KM Universe Model™ – Framework for KM
Abstract: If a picture is worth a 1,000 words, a creative metaphor can
depict a million words about a complex process. In this module, the KM
Universe Model™ focuses on the KM domain (KMBOK™) and the education required for
increased likelihood of KM success. Each Certificant leverages the model
to integrate the diverse aspects of KM: leadership, people/culture,
process, technology, learning, etc., including: how to implement KM, the domains KM
affects, and the ultimate impact of KM: Innovation.
· Exercise – Itemize KM Universe Model™
Sector Maturity Characteristics
eCKM2.02 – Understand the Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM™) and Global
Unified KM Framework™
Abstract: Any discipline needs to create its intellectual infrastructure,
especially proven maturity models and Frameworks. In this module we gain
understanding of two such models that are key components in the growing KM
Body of Knowledge (KMBOK™). Both the KMM™ and the Framework are rich enough
to be used as a diagnostic (KM Audit) and prescriptive tool.
· Exercise – Derive an Assessment Tool to
determine Enterprise-wide Socialization Maturity
eCKM2.03 – Visualize the KMBOK™ – Time Phases & Underlying Factors
Abstract: There’s nothing mystical about the time-phased methods to
implement KM. In this module, you will confirm that everyday experiences follow
the same basic sequence or structure as complex, strategic initiatives such
as KM. A major life event such as building your “dream home”, a
construction story, will be used to confirm key time phases inherent in any
strategic event. The construction story will serve also as a metaphor (blueprint)
to enable determination of key factors that vary over time--occur but differ
in each phase just as electric, plumbing, etc. occur on each floor of your
home, but also differ on each floor.
· Exercise – Discover KMBOK™ Methodology
Factors that Exist in all Phases
eCKM2.04 – Create the KMBOK™
Abstract: You will learn and use the innovation technique - Interactive
Knowledge Café – to create a Full Life Cycle KM Methodology as part of the
KMBOK™. You will gain confidence in the need for and thoroughness of the KM
Methodology you have designed.
· Exercise – Create KMBOK™ using
Interactive Knowledge Café Technique
· Exercise – Analyze Implications of the “
Whaling Story”
eCKM2.05 – View the Knowledge Base and Evaluate Alternative Methodologies
vs. KMBOK™
Abstract: View KMBOK™ in KBase Tool. Evaluate popular KM Methodologies
against your standard in terms of logical progression and factors considered.
Fortunately, if you find KMBOK™ lacking, continuous improvement is on your
side. You will find it equal to or more robust than popular, published
methodologies, and you will then have the personal confidence to: JUST DO IT!

Patrick Lambe has asked for the KM Institute Certification Program curriculum.
Importantly, all students both attend the week-long workshop and get a two-DVD interactive video set of the entire course for pre- and post-workshop review and study. The complete content is equivalent to about 2.5 workshop weeks or two 3-semester hour university courses.

Here is content outline:


Blended KM Certification Program Workshop (eCKM(tm)) Outline

How to Perform KM - This KM Certification Program is for serious practitioners who aspire to be KM leaders.
Theme I - Advanced KM Essentials/Rationale includes rigorous, practical KM (KM414), the rationale for KM, and role of the KM leader, we call the Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO).
In Theme II (KM423), we Create and Study the KMBOK(tm) Methodology, a robust, proven approach to enterprise KM.
Theme III (KM434) tracks thru that methodology, learning how to "Perform KM", including specific steps such as benchmarking, knowledge audits/mapping, Knowledge Age vision, strategies, and how to "Get Started" and commence change management.
Theme IV (KM444) is start of Life-Long Learning Program - Special Topics and techniques are surveyed: metrics, storytelling, Social Networks, KM Technology, Personal KM, CoPs, etc. The complete content is equivalent to three workshop weeks, but it is delivered in a blended approach, a mix of pre-requisite e-learning, face-to-face workshop, and post-workshop, interactive video E-Learning modules.

Theme One: Advanced KM Essentials/Rationale (12 Modules)
eCKM1.01 - Team Intro, Workshop Approach & Content

Abstract: Meet your Mentor and team mates. Review the "Knowledge Givers" (characters) and what you will learn during your study of the four CKM themes. "Learn-by-doing" two innovation techniques.
· Exercise - Learn/Apply Gossamer Albatross Technique - Build KM Workbook
· Exercise - Learn/Apply After Action Review Technique - Perform Daily Reviews
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.01 and review any supplemental reading materials, time permitting

eCKM1.02 - Understand Knowledge in Four Eras (Greek, Medieval, Industrial/Scientific, Modern)
Abstract: Knowledge has been defined quite differently throughout the ages. This module provides an historical perspective on knowledge (Western and non-Western) and in particular, the evolution of the concept of knowledge - Greek, Medieval, Industrial, and Modern Eras. This historical perspective enables you to define the concept of knowledge for modern organizations and to gain the requisite personal credibility in your KM leadership role.
· Exercise - Compare the Concept of Knowledge Thought by Civilization
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.02. Complete exercise; answers provided in the workshop.

eCKM1.03 - Define Knowledge in Modern Era
Abstract: This module contrasts the most popular and practical definitions of knowledge in our modern era. Four themes include: the definition of knowledge can be very personal based on personal perspectives; the ubiquitous nature of knowledge; how to relate the concept of action to differentiate knowledge from data and information; and diverse knowledge attributes (25) that promote real understanding.
· Exercise - Analyze Knowledge Attributes - Determine Importance
· Exercise - Define Knowledge for your Environment
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.03

eCKM1.04 - Understand Knowledge Modes (Understand Implications of Tacit & Explicit)
Abstract: This module focuses on an important knowledge attribute: Mode - tacit and explicit knowledge. The Nonaka & Takeuchi model shows the knowledge conversion dynamics for tacit and explicit knowledge. This tacit/explicit understanding enables you to design integrated KM solutions covered in CKM1.07 - "Connect & Collect".
· Exercise - Identify K Conversion Categories for Various KM Initiatives
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.04

eCKM1.05 - Understand Knowledge Episodes & Processes
Abstract: Medieval scholars thought all knowledge was known with knowledge flow from the more knowing to less knowing. A modern view emphasizes two-way flow between both more and less knowing individuals, with hopeful creation of new knowledge at every iteration. This module provides understanding of knowledge flow - KM Episodes and Knowledge Life Cycle - acquisition, production/creation and integration/use of knowledge throughout an organization.
· Exercise - Define Knowledge Processes Embedded in Enterprise Processes
· Exercise - Create "No Budget" KM
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.05
eCKM1.06 - Understand New Knowledge Paradigm
Abstract: This module studies a new knowledge paradigm "to get the best knowledge to the right person at just the right time to perform an activity (make decision, etc.)." The implications of the new knowledge paradigm are extensive. This module will insure you understand them and how you apply them to your KM Initiatives.
· Exercise - Implications of New Knowledge Paradigm in Enterprise Processes
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.06

eCKM1.07- Envision the KM Endgame
Abstract: You must be able to explain where KM is headed based understanding the conflicting characteristics of primary attributes - tacit/explicit knowledge and learned KM Principles. "Connect" & "Collect" depicts the KM Endgame vision, a culture of collaboration/knowledge sharing. This insight will benefit your own KM Initiatives.
· Exercise - Types of Knowledge References Needed in the "Books of Knowledge"
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.07

eCKM1.08 - Understand Basic KM Theory and Models
Abstract: Models are powerful tools to depict KM theory. This module studies many models, including: Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM), and impact of knowledge modes and absorptive capacity for various process model types.
· Exercise - Invent KM Initiative for Core Processes - tacit/explicit, routineness, absorptive capacity.
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.08

eCKM1.09 - Define KM
Abstract: Traditionally practitioners are surveyed to see what they do. But, KM is still in formative stage. Surveying what is being done doesn't prove what needs to be done. In this module we define KM by other means, e.g., KM Endgame and by studying best available KM definitions. Understanding the nature of fads, frameworks, methodologies, the KMBOK(tm), and standards helps. There is no perfect definition of KM, but you will be able define KM for diverse audiences.
· Exercise - Itemize KM Definition Components
· Exercise - Define KM for your CEO
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.09

eCKM1.10 - Build KM Rationale - Why Manage Knowledge Now, Case Studies and ultimate business case proof
Abstract: If a definition of KM is important, the rationale justifying KM is even more important. This module proves the merits of KM by discussing authoritative backing, critical problems (hot buttons) addressed by KM, some success stories as case studies, and the business intelligence model that proves the need to convert customer information assets into revenue streams through applied knowledge. "Why manage knowledge now?" You will know the answer.
· Exercise - Define KM Implications for Commoditization/Customization Model
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.10

eCKM1.11 - Understand Role of CKO - Competencies, Keys/Barriers to Success
Abstract: We derive the role of KM practitioners from what needs to be done based on research by experts, especially the role of the CKO, requisite competencies and skills, and the KM Imperative. The "Hype Curve" and Cautions and Barriers to Success are studied. You will understand your career opportunities.
· Exercise - Develop "Trough of Disillusionment" Countermeasures
Study Read-Ahead Materials - eCKM1.11

eCKM1.12 - Theme One Assessment
Abstract: Assessment of Theme I mastery.



Theme Two: Create/Study KMBOK(tm) (10 Modules)
Study Read-Ahead Materials - Theme II, time permitting.

eCKM2.01 - Create KM Universe Model(tm) - Framework for KM
Abstract: If a picture is worth a 1,000 words, a creative metaphor can depict a million words about a complex process. In this module, the KM Universe Model(tm) focuses on the KM domain (KMBOK(tm)) and the education required for increased likelihood of KM success. Each Certificant leverages the model to integrate the diverse aspects of KM: leadership, people/culture, process, technology, learning, etc., including: how to implement KM, the domains KM affects, and the ultimate impact of KM: Innovation.
· Exercise - Itemize KM Universe Model(tm) Sector Maturity Characteristics


eCKM2.02 - Understand the Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM(tm)) and Global Unified KM Framework(tm)
Abstract: Any discipline needs to create its intellectual infrastructure, especially proven maturity models and Frameworks. In this module we gain understanding of two such models that are key components in the growing KM Body of Knowledge (KMBOK(tm)). Both the KMM(tm) and the Framework are rich enough to be used as a diagnostic (KM Audit) and prescriptive tool.
· Exercise - Derive an Assessment Tool to determine Enterprise-wide Socialization Maturity

eCKM2.03 - Visualize the KMBOK(tm) - Time Phases & Underlying Factors
Abstract: There's nothing mystical about the time-phased methods to implement KM. In this module, you will confirm that everyday experiences follow the same basic sequence or structure as complex, strategic initiatives such as KM. A major life event such as building your "dream home", a construction story, will be used to confirm key time phases inherent in any strategic event. The construction story will serve also as a metaphor (blueprint) to enable determination of key factors that vary over time--occur but differ in each phase just as electric, plumbing, etc. occur on each floor of your home, but also differ on each floor.
· Exercise - Discover KMBOK(tm) Methodology Factors that Exist in all Phases

eCKM2.04 - Create the KMBOK(tm)
Abstract: You will learn and use the innovation technique - Interactive Knowledge Café - to create a Full Life Cycle KM Methodology as part of the KMBOK(tm). You will gain confidence in the need for and thoroughness of the KM Methodology you have designed.
· Exercise - Create KMBOK(tm) using Interactive Knowledge Café Technique
· Exercise - Analyze Implications of the "Whaling Story"

eCKM2.05 - View the Knowledge Base and Evaluate Alternative Methodologies vs. KMBOK(tm)
Abstract: View KMBOK(tm) in KBase Tool. Evaluate popular KM Methodologies against your standard in terms of logical progression and factors considered. Fortunately, if you find KMBOK(tm) lacking, continuous improvement is on your side. You will find it equal to or more robust than popular, published methodologies, and you will then have the personal confidence to: JUST DO IT!

Patrick,

I couldn't get a servicemark (SM) designation in an email so used (tm), the equivalent.

One can mark unique strings of words, such as KM Awareness Series(tm), which is a complete curriculum to support a traditional change management awareness campaign for KM (KM Lunch & Learn tutorials, KM100 - KM Awareness for the K Age(tm), KM101 - KM Fundamentals for the K Age(tm), KM301 - KM Executive Briefing and the Accredited KM Instructor Program. This is an often overlooked area of concern. Many KM failures can be attributed to lack of change management, as you know.

Dear Ivan,

Core competencies can be defined, but only if the role is defined.
Are you talking about CKO level, KM Coordinator, or K Workers as part of a KM Awareness Series(tm)?

Hello Everyone,
I am in the process of justifying the deployment of KM course. I appreciate if some of you can provide me with a short list of core competences to be achieved by participants after receiving the course.
Thanks,
Ivan


 

Dear Colleagues

I would like to offer the following perspective and suggest that “KM” training (courses) can provide one with an introduction to necessary skill sets that would enable one to “do KM” depending on the content of the course. What is clear from practically applying KM concepts, KM strategies, and KM implementing practices for over ten years is that learning a skill through training is not the same as competency. My point is that this discussion is useful in the context of recognizing that to become a KM practitioner, one needs to “practice”…practice delivering KM in a setting that delivers improved performance in a business or operational context..the real value of KM and its promise.

Esoteric and academic discussions have a place, for sure, but it is the practical application of the training, and your understanding in context of the application of KM concepts strategies, and implementing practices that enable the development of competency…the end objective in my opinion…competency-- enables you to drive business or operational results through knowledge leadership, a skill, by the way, that you can’t get through training and that is also a competency developed through performing, and learning, and performing, and learning…..

Best regards

Bill

Subject: Re: [sikmleaders] Core competences after KM training


Its taken this discussion long enough to get to the point! First, I think it is essential that we be able to describe the core competencies for a KM professional and I don't believe it matters as to the course being taught. Competencies and courses are two different issues. Courses should address at least some competencies, but we should be able to articulate KM competencies regardless of course.

To start this discussion, I believe the core competencies include:

Ability to articulate what KM and knowledge are and how they can help an organization

Ability to develop a KM strategy that articulates goals, needs for knowledge, users of knowledge, sources of knowledge, and how knowledge will be captured, stored, and transferred.

Ability to design (and to some degree implement) various KM Systems to support needed KM goals

Ability to understand, articulate, and address key issues affecting KM such as security, measurement, new technologies, innovation, etc.

Ability to design and implement measurement systems for determining KM success and other identified KM goals

Ability to evaluate new technologies for fit with an organization's systems and KM systems

Ability to communicate KM to all levels of the organization

Ability to assess organizational processes for KM, to support the process and/or capture knowledge from the process

Ability to lead KM initiatives

There are probably more but this is what strikes me as core competencies. The course I teach is designed to get MBA students to understand KM and to possibly lead and/or participate in a KM initiative. The objectives of this course are:

Identify and define Knowledge Management terms and concepts
Define and discuss what knowledge is including tacit, explicit, and organizational knowledge
Define what a Knowledge Management System is and is not
Define Organizational Memory and Organizational Learning and discuss their relationship to Knowledge Management
Discuss the Knowledge Life Cycle

Explain how Knowledge Management impacts an organization
Discuss how Knowledge Management applications such as Customer Relationship Management, Supply Chain Management, and Data Warehousing impact organizational effectiveness
Discuss how Knowledge Management can improve organizational and individual decision making

Describe how to build and implement a Knowledge Management System
Discuss technologies used in Knowledge Management such as Web Portals, XML, Ontologies, Taxonomies, and Topic Maps
Discuss the functions and goals of a Knowledge Management System
Discuss knowledge repositories with respect to structure and codification schemes
Describe recommendations from research as to the construction of a Knowledge Management System

Explain Knowledge Management/Knowledge Management System Success
Discuss the need for measuring KM/KMS success
List and describe KM/KMS Success Factors
List and describe KM/KMS Effectiveness Models

Identify and Discuss issues affecting Knowledge Management
Describe issues affecting knowledge transfer, flow, and use in organizations
Describe the impact of Knowledge Management strategy on KM and KMS success
Describe how Knowledge Management System use and knowledge re-use impacts KM and KMS success
Describe how Communities of Practice implement KM
I hope this helps get this discussion rolling! Thanks...murray

Patrick Lambe has asked for the KM Institute Certification Program curriculum.
Importantly, all students both attend the week-long workshop and get a two-DVD interactive video set of the entire course for pre- and post-workshop review and study. The complete content is equivalent to about 2.5 workshop weeks or two 3-semester hour university courses.

Here is content outline:


Blended KM Certification Program Workshop (eCKM™) Outline

How to Perform KM – This KM Certification Program is for serious practitioners who aspire to be KM leaders.
Theme I – Advanced KM Essentials/Rationale includes rigorous, practical KM (KM414), the rationale for KM, and role of the KM leader, we call the Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO).
In Theme II (KM423), we Create and Study the KMBOK™ Methodology, a robust, proven approach to enterprise KM.
Theme III (KM434) tracks thru that methodology, learning how to “Perform KM”, including specific steps such as benchmarking, knowledge audits/mapping, Knowledge Age vision, strategies, and how to “Get Started” and commence change management.
Theme IV (KM444) is start of Life-Long Learning Program – Special Topics and techniques are surveyed: metrics, storytelling, Social Networks, KM Technology, Personal KM, CoPs, etc. The complete content is equivalent to three workshop weeks, but it is delivered in a blended approach, a mix of pre-requisite e-learning, face-to-face workshop, and post-workshop, interactive video E-Learning modules.

Theme One: Advanced KM Essentials/Rationale (12 Modules)
eCKM1.01 – Team Intro, Workshop Approach & Content

Abstract: Meet your Mentor and team mates. Review the “Knowledge Givers” (characters) and what you will learn during your study of the four CKM themes. “Learn-by-doing” two innovation techniques.
• Exercise – Learn/Apply Gossamer Albatross Technique – Build KM Workbook
• Exercise – Learn/Apply After Action Review Technique – Perform Daily Reviews
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.01 and review any supplemental reading materials, time permitting

eCKM1.02 – Understand Knowledge in Four Eras (Greek, Medieval, Industrial/Scientific, Modern)
Abstract: Knowledge has been defined quite differently throughout the ages. This module provides an historical perspective on knowledge (Western and non-Western) and in particular, the evolution of the concept of knowledge – Greek, Medieval, Industrial, and Modern Eras. This historical perspective enables you to define the concept of knowledge for modern organizations and to gain the requisite personal credibility in your KM leadership role.
• Exercise – Compare the Concept of Knowledge Thought by Civilization
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.02. Complete exercise; answers provided in the workshop.

eCKM1.03 – Define Knowledge in Modern Era
Abstract: This module contrasts the most popular and practical definitions of knowledge in our modern era. Four themes include: the definition of knowledge can be very personal based on personal perspectives; the ubiquitous nature of knowledge; how to relate the concept of action to differentiate knowledge from data and information; and diverse knowledge attributes (25) that promote real understanding.
• Exercise – Analyze Knowledge Attributes – Determine Importance
• Exercise – Define Knowledge for your Environment
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.03

eCKM1.04 – Understand Knowledge Modes (Understand Implications of Tacit & Explicit)
Abstract: This module focuses on an important knowledge attribute: Mode – tacit and explicit knowledge. The Nonaka & Takeuchi model shows the knowledge conversion dynamics for tacit and explicit knowledge. This tacit/explicit understanding enables you to design integrated KM solutions covered in CKM1.07 – “Connect & Collect”.
• Exercise – Identify K Conversion Categories for Various KM Initiatives
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.04

eCKM1.05 – Understand Knowledge Episodes & Processes
Abstract: Medieval scholars thought all knowledge was known with knowledge flow from the more knowing to less knowing. A modern view emphasizes two-way flow between both more and less knowing individuals, with hopeful creation of new knowledge at every iteration. This module provides understanding of knowledge flow – KM Episodes and Knowledge Life Cycle - acquisition, production/creation and integration/use of knowledge throughout an organization.
• Exercise – Define Knowledge Processes Embedded in Enterprise Processes
• Exercise – Create “No Budget” KM
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.05
eCKM1.06 – Understand New Knowledge Paradigm
Abstract: This module studies a new knowledge paradigm “to get the best knowledge to the right person at just the right time to perform an activity (make decision, etc.).” The implications of the new knowledge paradigm are extensive. This module will insure you understand them and how you apply them to your KM Initiatives.
• Exercise – Implications of New Knowledge Paradigm in Enterprise Processes
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.06

eCKM1.07– Envision the KM Endgame
Abstract: You must be able to explain where KM is headed based understanding the conflicting characteristics of primary attributes – tacit/explicit knowledge and learned KM Principles. “Connect” & “Collect” depicts the KM Endgame vision, a culture of collaboration/knowledge sharing. This insight will benefit your own KM Initiatives.
• Exercise – Types of Knowledge References Needed in the “Books of Knowledge”
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.07

eCKM1.08 – Understand Basic KM Theory and Models
Abstract: Models are powerful tools to depict KM theory. This module studies many models, including: Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM), and impact of knowledge modes and absorptive capacity for various process model types.
• Exercise – Invent KM Initiative for Core Processes – tacit/explicit, routineness, absorptive capacity.
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.08

eCKM1.09 – Define KM
Abstract: Traditionally practitioners are surveyed to see what they do. But, KM is still in formative stage. Surveying what is being done doesn’t prove what needs to be done. In this module we define KM by other means, e.g., KM Endgame and by studying best available KM definitions. Understanding the nature of fads, frameworks, methodologies, the KMBOK™, and standards helps. There is no perfect definition of KM, but you will be able define KM for diverse audiences.
• Exercise – Itemize KM Definition Components
• Exercise – Define KM for your CEO
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.09

eCKM1.10 – Build KM Rationale – Why Manage Knowledge Now, Case Studies and ultimate business case proof
Abstract: If a definition of KM is important, the rationale justifying KM is even more important. This module proves the merits of KM by discussing authoritative backing, critical problems (hot buttons) addressed by KM, some success stories as case studies, and the business intelligence model that proves the need to convert customer information assets into revenue streams through applied knowledge. “Why manage knowledge now?” You will know the answer.
• Exercise – Define KM Implications for Commoditization/Customization Model
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.10

eCKM1.11 – Understand Role of CKO – Competencies, Keys/Barriers to Success
Abstract: We derive the role of KM practitioners from what needs to be done based on research by experts, especially the role of the CKO, requisite competencies and skills, and the KM Imperative. The “Hype Curve” and Cautions and Barriers to Success are studied. You will understand your career opportunities.
• Exercise – Develop "Trough of Disillusionment" Countermeasures
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.11

Study Read-Ahead Materials – Theme II, time permitting.

eCKM2.01 – Create KM Universe Model™ – Framework for KM
Abstract: If a picture is worth a 1,000 words, a creative metaphor can depict a million words about a complex process. In this module, the KM Universe Model™ focuses on the KM domain (KMBOK™) and the education required for increased likelihood of KM success. Each Certificant leverages the model to integrate the diverse aspects of KM: leadership, people/culture, process, technology, learning, etc., including: how to implement KM, the domains KM affects, and the ultimate impact of KM: Innovation.
• Exercise – Itemize KM Universe Model™ Sector Maturity Characteristics


eCKM2.02 – Understand the Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM™) and Global Unified KM Framework™
Abstract: Any discipline needs to create its intellectual infrastructure, especially proven maturity models and Frameworks. In this module we gain understanding of two such models that are key components in the growing KM Body of Knowledge (KMBOK™). Both the KMM™ and the Framework are rich enough to be used as a diagnostic (KM Audit) and prescriptive tool.
• Exercise – Derive an Assessment Tool to determine Enterprise-wide Socialization Maturity

eCKM2.03 – Visualize the KMBOK™ – Time Phases & Underlying Factors
Abstract: There’s nothing mystical about the time-phased methods to implement KM. In this module, you will confirm that everyday experiences follow the same basic sequence or structure as complex, strategic initiatives such as KM. A major life event such as building your “dream home”, a construction story, will be used to confirm key time phases inherent in any strategic event. The construction story will serve also as a metaphor (blueprint) to enable determination of key factors that vary over time--occur but differ in each phase just as electric, plumbing, etc. occur on each floor of your home, but also differ on each floor.
• Exercise – Discover KMBOK™ Methodology Factors that Exist in all Phases

eCKM2.04 – Create the KMBOK™

Dear Ivan,

Core competencies can be defined, but only if the role is defined.
Are you talking about CKO level, KM Coordinator, or K Workers as part of a KM Awareness Series™?

Dear friends,

thank you very much to everyone sharing your thoughts with me. Regarding the goal of the course, it is focused in introducing KM (director level and key/specialized workers) and its ways of applying it in a corporate environment. I found, from your inputs, many valuable information for adjusting course goals and defining some core competencies.

Best regards,

Asunto: RE: [sikmleaders] Core competences after KM training


Dear Colleagues

I would like to offer the following perspective and suggest that “KM” training (courses) can provide one with an introduction to necessary skill sets that would enable one to “do KM” depending on the content of the course. What is clear from practically applying KM concepts, KM strategies, and KM implementing practices for over ten years is that learning a skill through training is not the same as competency. My point is that this discussion is useful in the context of recognizing that to become a KM practitioner, one needs to “practice”…practice delivering KM in a setting that delivers improved performance in a business or operational context..the real value of KM and its promise.

Esoteric and academic discussions have a place, for sure, but it is the practical application of the training, and your understanding in context of the application of KM concepts strategies, and implementing practices that enable the development of competency…the end objective in my opinion…competency-- enables you to drive business or operational results through knowledge leadership, a skill, by the way, that you can’t get through training and that is also a competency developed through performing, and learning, and performing, and learning…..

Best regards

Bill

Subject: Re: [sikmleaders] Core competences after KM training


Its taken this discussion long enough to get to the point! First, I think it is essential that we be able to describe the core competencies for a KM professional and I don't believe it matters as to the course being taught. Competencies and courses are two different issues. Courses should address at least some competencies, but we should be able to articulate KM competencies regardless of course.

To start this discussion, I believe the core competencies include:

Ability to articulate what KM and knowledge are and how they can help an organization

Ability to develop a KM strategy that articulates goals, needs for knowledge, users of knowledge, sources of knowledge, and how knowledge will be captured, stored, and transferred.

Ability to design (and to some degree implement) various KM Systems to support needed KM goals

Ability to understand, articulate, and address key issues affecting KM such as security, measurement, new technologies, innovation, etc.

Ability to design and implement measurement systems for determining KM success and other identified KM goals

Ability to evaluate new technologies for fit with an organization' s systems and KM systems

Ability to communicate KM to all levels of the organization

Ability to assess organizational processes for KM, to support the process and/or capture knowledge from the process

Ability to lead KM initiatives

There are probably more but this is what strikes me as core competencies. The course I teach is designed to get MBA students to understand KM and to possibly lead and/or participate in a KM initiative. The objectives of this course are:

Identify and define Knowledge Management terms and concepts
Define and discuss what knowledge is including tacit, explicit, and organizational knowledge
Define what a Knowledge Management System is and is not
Define Organizational Memory and Organizational Learning and discuss their relationship to Knowledge Management
Discuss the Knowledge Life Cycle

Explain how Knowledge Management impacts an organization
Discuss how Knowledge Management applications such as Customer Relationship Management, Supply Chain Management, and Data Warehousing impact organizational effectiveness
Discuss how Knowledge Management can improve organizational and individual decision making

Describe how to build and implement a Knowledge Management System
Discuss technologies used in Knowledge Management such as Web Portals, XML, Ontologies, Taxonomies, and Topic Maps
Discuss the functions and goals of a Knowledge Management System
Discuss knowledge repositories with respect to structure and codification schemes
Describe recommendations from research as to the construction of a Knowledge Management System

Explain Knowledge Management/Knowledg e Management System Success
Discuss the need for measuring KM/KMS success
List and describe KM/KMS Success Factors
List and describe KM/KMS Effectiveness Models

Identify and Discuss issues affecting Knowledge Management
Describe issues affecting knowledge transfer, flow, and use in organizations
Describe the impact of Knowledge Management strategy on KM and KMS success
Describe how Knowledge Management System use and knowledge re-use impacts KM and KMS success
Describe how Communities of Practice implement KM
I hope this helps get this discussion rolling! Thanks...murray

Patrick Lambe has asked for the KM Institute Certification Program curriculum.
Importantly, all students both attend the week-long workshop and get a two-DVD interactive video set of the entire course for pre- and post-workshop review and study. The complete content is equivalent to about 2.5 workshop weeks or two 3-semester hour university courses.

Here is content outline:


Blended KM Certification Program Workshop (eCKM™) Outline

How to Perform KM– This KM Certification Program is for serious practitioners who aspire to be KM leaders.
Theme I – Advanced KM Essentials/Rational eincludes rigorous, practical KM (KM414), the rationale for KM, and role of the KM leader, we call the Chief Knowledge Officer (CKO).
In Theme II (KM423), we Create and Study the KMBOK™ Methodology, a robust, proven approach to enterprise KM.
Theme III(KM434) tracks thru that methodology, learning how to “Perform KM”, including specific steps such as benchmarking, knowledge audits/mapping, Knowledge Age vision, strategies, and how to “Get Started” and commence change management.
Theme IV(KM444) is start of Life-Long Learning Program – Special Topics and techniques are surveyed: metrics, storytelling, Social Networks, KM Technology, Personal KM, CoPs, etc. The complete content is equivalent to three workshop weeks, but it is delivered in a blended approach, a mix of pre-requisite e-learning, face-to-face workshop, and post-workshop, interactive video E-Learning modules.

Theme One: Advanced KM Essentials/Rational e (12 Modules)
eCKM1.01– Team Intro, Workshop Approach & Content
Abstract: Meet your Mentor and team mates. Review the “Knowledge Givers” (characters) and what you will learn during your study of the four CKM themes. “Learn-by-doing” two innovation techniques.
· Exercise – Learn/Apply Gossamer Albatross Technique – Build KM Workbook
· Exercise – Learn/Apply After Action Review Technique – Perform Daily Reviews
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.01 and review any supplemental reading materials, time permitting

eCKM1.02– Understand Knowledge in Four Eras (Greek, Medieval, Industrial/Scientific, Modern)
Abstract: Knowledge has been defined quite differently throughout the ages. This module provides an historical perspective on knowledge (Western and non-Western) and in particular, the evolution of the concept of knowledge – Greek, Medieval, Industrial, and Modern Eras. This historical perspective enables you to define the concept of knowledge for modern organizations and to gain the requisite personal credibility in your KM leadership role.
· Exercise – Compare the Concept of Knowledge Thought by Civilization
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.02. Complete exercise; answers provided in the workshop.

eCKM1.03– Define Knowledge in Modern Era
Abstract: This module contrasts the most popular and practical definitions of knowledge in our modern era. Four themes include: the definition of knowledge can be very personal based on personal perspectives; the ubiquitous nature of knowledge; how to relate the concept of action to differentiate knowledge from data and information; and diverse knowledge attributes (25) that promote real understanding.
· Exercise – Analyze Knowledge Attributes – Determine Importance
· Exercise – Define Knowledge for your Environment
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.03

eCKM1.04– Understand Knowledge Modes (Understand Implications of Tacit & Explicit)
Abstract: This module focuses on an important knowledge attribute: Mode – tacit and explicit knowledge. The Nonaka & Takeuchi model shows the knowledge conversion dynamics for tacit and explicit knowledge. This tacit/explicit understanding enables you to design integrated KM solutions covered in CKM1.07 – “Connect & Collect”.
· Exercise – Identify K Conversion Categories for Various KM Initiatives
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.04

eCKM1.05– Understand Knowledge Episodes & Processes
Abstract: Medieval scholars thought all knowledge was known with knowledge flow from the more knowing to less knowing. A modern view emphasizes two-way flow between both more and less knowing individuals, with hopeful creation of new knowledge at every iteration. This module provides understanding of knowledge flow – KM Episodes and Knowledge Life Cycle - acquisition, production/creation and integration/ use of knowledge throughout an organization.
· Exercise – Define Knowledge Processes Embedded in Enterprise Processes
· Exercise – Create “No Budget” KM
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.05
eCKM1.06– Understand New Knowledge Paradigm
Abstract: This module studies a new knowledge paradigm “to get the best knowledge to the right person at just the right time to perform an activity (make decision, etc.).” The implications of the new knowledge paradigm are extensive. This module will insure you understand them and how you apply them to your KM Initiatives.
· Exercise – Implications of New Knowledge Paradigm in Enterprise Processes
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.06

eCKM1.07– Envision the KM Endgame
Abstract: You must be able to explain where KM is headed based understanding the conflicting characteristics of primary attributes – tacit/explicit knowledge and learned KM Principles. “Connect” & “Collect” depicts the KM Endgame vision, a culture of collaboration/ knowledge sharing. This insight will benefit your own KM Initiatives.
· Exercise – Types of Knowledge References Needed in the “Books of Knowledge”
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.07

eCKM1.08– Understand Basic KM Theory and Models
Abstract: Models are powerful tools to depict KM theory. This module studies many models, including: Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM), and impact of knowledge modes and absorptive capacity for various process model types.
· Exercise – Invent KM Initiative for Core Processes – tacit/explicit, routineness, absorptive capacity.
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.08

eCKM1.09– Define KM
Abstract: Traditionally practitioners are surveyed to see what they do. But, KM is still in formative stage. Surveying what is being done doesn’t prove what needs to be done. In this module we define KM by other means, e.g., KM Endgame and by studying best available KM definitions. Understanding the nature of fads, frameworks, methodologies, the KMBOK™, and standards helps. There is no perfect definition of KM, but you will be able define KM for diverse audiences.
· Exercise – Itemize KM Definition Components
· Exercise – Define KM for your CEO
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.09

eCKM1.10– Build KM Rationale – Why Manage Knowledge Now, Case Studies and ultimate business case proof
Abstract: If a definition of KM is important, the rationale justifying KM is even more important. This module proves the merits of KM by discussing authoritative backing, critical problems (hot buttons) addressed by KM, some success stories as case studies, and the business intelligence model that proves the need to convert customer information assets into revenue streams through applied knowledge. “Why manage knowledge now?” You will know the answer.
· Exercise – Define KM Implications for Commoditization/ Customization Model
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.10

eCKM1.11– Understand Role of CKO – Competencies, Keys/Barriers to Success
Abstract: We derive the role of KM practitioners from what needs to be done based on research by experts, especially the role of the CKO, requisite competencies and skills, and the KM Imperative. The “Hype Curve” and Cautions and Barriers to Success are studied. You will understand your career opportunities.
· Exercise – Develop "Trough of Disillusionment" Countermeasures
Study Read-Ahead Materials – eCKM1.11

eCKM1.12– Theme One Assessment
Abstract: Assessment of Theme I mastery.



Theme Two: Create/Study KMBOK™ (10 Modules)
Study Read-Ahead Materials – Theme II, time permitting.

eCKM2.01– Create KM Universe Model™– Framework for KM
Abstract: If a picture is worth a 1,000 words, a creative metaphor can depict a million words about a complex process. In this module, the KM Universe Model™ focuses on the KM domain (KMBOK™) and the education required for increased likelihood of KM success. Each Certificant leverages the model to integrate the diverse aspects of KM: leadership, people/culture, process, technology, learning, etc., including: how to implement KM, the domains KM affects, and the ultimate impact of KM: Innovation.
· Exercise – Itemize KM Universe Model™ Sector Maturity Characteristics


eCKM2.02– Understand the Knowledge Maturity Model (KMM™) and Global Unified KM Framework™
Abstract: Any discipline needs to create its intellectual infrastructure, especially proven maturity models and Frameworks. In this module we gain understanding of two such models that are key components in the growing KM Body of Knowledge (KMBOK™). Both the KMM™ and the Framework are rich enough to be used as a diagnostic (KM Audit) and prescriptive tool.
· Exercise – Derive an Assessment Tool to determine Enterprise-wide Socialization Maturity

eCKM2.03– Visualize the KMBOK™ – Time Phases & Underlying Factors
Abstract: There’s nothing mystical about the time-phased methods to implement KM. In this module, you will confirm that everyday experiences follow the same basic sequence or structure as complex, strategic initiatives such as KM. A major life event such as building your “dream home”, a construction story, will be used to confirm key time phases inherent in any strategic event. The construction story will serve also as a metaphor (blueprint) to enable determination of key factors that vary over time--occur but differ in each phase just as electric, plumbing, etc. occur on each floor of your home, but also differ on each floor.
· Exercise – Discover KMBOK™ Methodology Factors that Exist in all Phases

eCKM2.04– Create the KMBOK™

Ermmm.... Douglas... what's with the ™? Isn't it a bit of an overkill to claim a trademark on a perfectly normal string of English words?


By the way, didn't you say you would share the curriculum of your CKM program for Wider Professional Scrutiny™?

Dear Ivan,

Core competencies can be defined, but only if the role is defined.
Are you talking about CKO level, KM Coordinator, or K Workers as part of a KM Awareness Series™?

Hello Everyone,
I am in the process of justifying the deployment of KM course. I appreciate if some of you can provide me with a short list of core competences to be achieved by participants after receiving the course.
Thanks,
Ivan
