Call for KM Standards Development Volunteers

The Association for Information and Image Management has issued a call for volunteers to develop three Knowledge Management Standards – for individual competencies, for organisational capabilities, and for KM education programmes. I like the structure. It’s a very tricky (=political) area, but one best tackled by institutions rather than small partisan groups, so I wish it well!

Some months back a LinkedIn group started to try to address this, but as far as I can tell it fizzled out in the usual way (put five knowledge managers in a room and they will argue for ten conflicting directions). Small groups tend to get hijacked by special interests. Institutions have employees, infrastructure, governance and process, which may help!

Patrick should I laugh at pun in the post or lament on the vainness in such efforts (esp. maturity models and certification)?

Put in my name in any case, it could be fun just to see how the committees operate together.
