Introduction Kent State University and George Washington University are pleased to present the Knowledge Management Education Forum Summit, part of an on-going, annual dialog to identify and grow consensus on the knowledge management body of knowledge, competencies, roles and curriculum. Beginning in March 2011 with a weekly series of 90-minute webinars with invited presentations (see listing at back of booklet), the KM Education Forum has addressed four key questions related to the KM profession:

1. What strategic roles and responsibilities do knowledge professionals play in organizations today – across all sectors of the economy?
2. What competencies do today’s knowledge professionals need to lead knowledge organizations in the 21st century?
3. What are the core and elective elements of a knowledge management curriculum for the 21st century?
4. How can we support these competencies in professional training, at the certificate level, at the master’s and PhD. levels?

The increased focus on the knowledge economy has heightened interest in knowledge management as a professional area of practice and in the educational foundation needed to support it. Despite the wealth of published and informal literature, thought derived from practice, and dialog on these topics, there is no consensus on what constitutes the core elements of knowledge management competencies and knowledge management education.
The goal of the KM Education Forum is to create an environment in which this consensus can evolve. It brings together the current and past thought leaders in the field of knowledge management to discuss their work and to open the dialog where others can contribute.
This first Summit is a culminating event for the first series of discussions. It aims to identify areas where consensus has been achieved and support the publication of a formal KMEF communiqué. We envision the Forum as an ongoing, annual dialog that will mirror this emerging profession.
We welcome those of you who are joining us for the first time at this Summit, as well as those of you who have participated in the discussion along the way. We are at a critical juncture in the evolution of this young profession and this emerging domain. We look forward to your contributions to this process.
