Knowledge Management Coming of Age
Wednesday, August 21
2:10 - 3:00PM
The field of knowledge management has been evolving and expanding over the past 60 years. This is a field with recognized thought
leaders, with diverse areas of practice, a wide range of job titles and roles, specialized skills and competencies but with no established
and recognized standards pertaining to education or practice. The discipline's evolution is not unlike the early days of computer science
or project management. Today these fields have established educational standards, standards for certification, recognition of levels of
competencies for individuals, and for organizations. This panel will discuss why it is important to build that foundation to ensure the
future of KM, and will also consider why it is important to establish annual surveys to report on the state of the profession and
professional education. The panel will discuss two efforts underway:
· Association of Information and Information Management's Knowledge Management Framework of Standards;
· Knowledge Management Education Forum's annual surveys of the state of the profession.
Betsy Fanning, Director and Chapter Relations, AIIM will discuss the formal standards development and approval processes
that are followed by accredited standards organizations.
The following panelists will discuss why the time is right for standards, and the type of standards needed to ensure inclusivity and
extensibility. The panel will also discuss the release of the annual surveys of the profession.

The DGI invitation to attend a panel discussion on KM at the DC Convention Center lists my name. However, since there will be no Internet connection, I will not be able to participate from my perch in the greater Boston area.
