Knowledge Management Competencies

It’s been very busy on the publishing front recently! Apart from our KM Method Cards in June, and the KM Approaches Methods and Tool Guidebook last week, in my other identity as President of iKMS, I also helped produce the first competency-based self-development guide for knowledge managers (that we know of).

It’s a 56 page booklet, based on narrative research into the operating challenges that knowledge managers face working in the Singapore context. It can be used to identify competency gaps, depending on what the challenges are, and also ways to improve competencies. The video below introduces the project and the book (the video was originally produced for the Cognitive Edge network, whose techniques we used). My compliments to iKMS colleague Awie Foong for leading this 18 month project so ably.

Hi Patrick, This sounds like a really interesting project and I really like the way each role is presented.  I may not be in Singapore, but I can certainly relate to some of the competencies you discussed.  Is there any way to get a hold of a copy of your booklet?

Hi Stephanie - iKMS will be selling the book from its new website in the next month or so, which might be the easiest way to get the book to you (as the site will take credit card payments), currently iKMS can only take payment in Singapore dollars. The book will cost SGD30 which I guess would be around USD20?
