KM Institute Certifies Record Number of U.S. Armed Forces in Sixty-day Period

KM Institute Certifies Record Number of U.S. Armed Forces in Sixty-day Period | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it

The KM Institute (KMI), the global leader in Knowledge Management Certification, announced a record* number of classes delivered to Military personnel and certifications awarded during a 60-day period.

 

Between August 11-29, three private classes of the acclaimed Certified Knowledge Manager (CKM) program were delivered at: Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico, U.S. Pacific Command in Hawaii, and Scott Air Force Base near St. Louis, MO., as well as a group of Army personnel registered for the online version of the CKM (eCKM). 

 

In addition to a busy August, KMI is teaching a public CKM Class in San Diego, Sep 22-26, represented by a large group from Camp Pendleton, as well as local NAVSOC (Naval Special Warfare Command), plus another private class at Scott AFB in October.

 

All together, over 70 Military personnel will have taken part and earned their CKM Certification stemming from this full 60-day period. 

 

Recent military cutbacks mandated by sequestration caused a decrease in professional skills training during late 2012/13, but steady interest during 2014 grew to an unexpected level during Summer months leading up to the fiscal year end for Federal Government/Military (Sep 30th). 

 

“The recent spike in KM training and competency is not just a reaction to newly available funds,” says Douglas Weidner, Chairman of KM Institute, “we believe it reflects a growing trend in the U.S. Military and elsewhere, that even during a sluggish economy, there is a fundamental need for agencies and firms to substantially improve performance of their knowledge-intensive activities in the emerging, Post-Industrial, Knowledge Age.” 

 

Weidner, KMI founder, is also an Air Force Academy Grad and Vietnam War Veteran.  He has an extensive history teaching and certifying various military commands over the last 14 years that he has taught Certification-level training in KM.

 

In addition to the multitude of private classes delivered over the years to bases, commands, and forts, KMI’s acclaimed e-learning program (eCKM)

- a key differentiator from other KM Training providers - allows in theater soldiers and civilians to study without the need to travel to a class, nor rely on Internet access to run the DVDs provided by KMI.

 

“We are confident the U.S. Military and other allied Military operations world-wide will continue to realize the mission critical need for such training,” adds Weidner, “and we will be here to help them succeed.”

How to make Knowledge Management Sexy Again

Two articles surfaced recently that reinforce that point to how to make KM sexy again:

The second article reference would probably cause Nassim Nicholas Taleb to say, of big data, "Of course!"  One of his quotes, "The fooled-by-data effect is accelerating. There is a nasty phenomenon called “Big Data” in which researchers have brought cherry-picking to an industrial level."

That said, I'm just back from the Knowledge Management Institute Showcase (next post) where "sensemaking" and combining narrative and social science methods was exactly what we were doing.  


My version of it, using "Open Space Technology" as a process technique to FRAME for enrichment, exchange, commitment will be in the next post.   ~  D

KM Institute Partners with Phillips Consulting in Nigeria; Delivers first joint Knowledge Management Certification program in Sub-Saharan Africa

KM Institute Partners with Phillips Consulting in Nigeria; Delivers first joint Knowledge Management Certification program in Sub-Saharan Africa | Knowledge Management - Insights from KM Institute | Scoop.it

(Washington DC, September 12, 2014) – The KM Institute (KMI), the global leader in Knowledge Management Certification, announces a new partnership with Phillips Consulting, a leading management consulting and training firm based out of Lagos, Nigeria, to deliver KMI’s Certification classes in the region.

 

The first ever Certified Knowledge Manager (CKM) program (a 5-day workshop supplemented by e-learning) was delivered to rave reviews, September 1-5 at the Sheraton Lagos Hotel. 

 

The class, jointly produced by KMI and Phillips Consulting, marks the first of many to come in the region, with scheduled classes planned quarterly throughout 2015 and beyond.

 

“We are very excited to partner with such a prestigious firm as Phillips Consulting,” says Eric Weidner, Director and Co-Founder of KMI.  “We have seen tremendous interest in KM training from our members in the region,” adds Weidner, “and with Phillips Consulting representing KMI’s Certification, professionals in Nigeria and across Sub-Saharan Africa now have a high-quality training program they can attend, without having to cross the Atlantic or go elsewhere.”

 

“For us, this is a culmination of humble efforts in supporting organisations in implementing Knowledge Management in Nigeria,” said Paul Ayim, Partner responsible for Learning & Knowledge Management in Phillips Consulting. “This aligns with the corporate direction, which is to bring wealth to Africa. The Knowledge Age is here, and organizations that will survive in the knowledge age cannot afford not to give attention to the urgency this demands.”

 

Paul Concluded: “Organizations must act now before it becomes too late. “

 

With Phillips Consulting onboard, KMI now covers most of the major “hubs” of the world, with regular Certification classes in North America (Washington DC and San Diego), in Europe (Switzerland and soon the UK), in SouthEast Asia (Malaysia), in South America (Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), in the Middle East (Dubai, UAE), and now in Africa (Nigeria).

It is not a question of generation, it is a change in culture, influencing our workplace, our private lives and our sharing with others. We need to develop new methods for learning and knowledge, that apply not only to the younger generation, but to all of us who have taken the millenial perspective in.
