Practically Speaking, Does Professional Certification in Knowledge Management Exist … How Will You Know It’s Real??

There are pockets of effort around the world to begin to develop a Knowledge Management Body of Knowledge (KMBOK) but it doesn’t yet exist. The closest we have to real codification may be the 2015 version of ISO 9001 which has clause, 7.1.6, on organizational knowledge and its management.

You know from reading Part I of this discussion that real, meaningful certification involves a whole lot more than “training” and that “KM certification” as it is being sold and promoted today is a misnomer. 

So how will you know KM certification when you see it? I suggest that it will involve the process and content suggested above.

Would appreciate your thoughts on this? Make sense? What more is needed?
