KM is not a profession. Do not pretend it ever will become a profession. That is dumb. Monolithic KM certification is silly. KM 'are' behaviors, methods, techniques, models, tools, etc. only. The best KM is inculcated into every waking moment of business professionals lives. It is not some dopey department, person, tool or certificate. Again, this inane perception makes KM a laughingstock. You can't 'KM' something or someone.


David Gurteen's comments: Well said John!

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.
