In June 2005 we ran the first European 5 day Certified Knowledge Manager Workshop (CKM™) of the KM Institute™ in Switzerland. We will be holding the next CKM training 28 Nov - 02 Dec 2005 with further public classes to be held in Spring and Autumn 2006. This training is a comprehensive 5 day Certified Knowledge Manager Workshop (CKM™), plus pre- and post-workshop access to KM Institute™ eLearning materials and resources.
Feedback from our June class:
"Having been in KM for over 6 years, I can vouch for the robustness of the content and enjoyed capturing the new knowledge nuggets, especially around Measurement. I enjoyed the member participation and the diversity of the group which helped to place a broad and rich perspective on the course"
-- Hank Malik, IBM
"I liked the blend of theory and practice, opportunity to learn from fellow students, enriched brainstorming and knowledge café techniques, and pragmatic approach. Douglas is clearly an accomplished expert in the field and he is a very good presenter."
-- Andre Stepanov, Heidrick & Struggles
“I liked the interaction with the trainer and other participants, enthusiasm of the group, open discussions and contributions of participants.”
-- Beat Knechtli, ABB
