Knowledge Management Education Forum (KMEF)

  • KMEF Webinar Session-1

The Knowledge Management Education Forum (KMEF) is an on-going, annual dialog hosted by Kent State University and George Washington University. We invite and welcome your participation and collaboration in this endeavor to identify and grow consensus on the knowledge management body of knowledge, competencies, roles and curriculum.

The goal of the KM Education Forum is to create an environment in which this consensus can evolve. It aims to bring 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. We envision the Forum as an ongoing, annual dialog that will mirror this emerging profession.

This is the first of a weekly series of free webinars supported by Kent State University from Tuesday, March 15, through Tuesday, April 26, 2011; invited speaker presentations and a moderated discussion.

These webinars will focus on four key questions:

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

Please refer to other details on these webinars at: KMEF Webinars (home page for this webinar series.)

The author will discuss the lessons learned from KM initiatives and application of theory based solutions. She will discuss the evolution of the PLANT methodology and its relationship to knowledge management roles and responsibilities that are critical to its success. The path that she discusses demonstrates a need for competent KM professionals who are knowledgeable and trained in the discipline of KM.
