Global Knowledge Network



Knowledge Management

I am acting as a catalyst to bring together all the Knowledge Management networks and societies in the world to help create a loosely connected "network of networks".

The Gurteen Knowledge Community is not the center of the network - there is no center - just a network of  peers who have agreed to informally work together and support each other.

You will find a KM Network Directory of KM networks, societies and associations that I am currently aware of on this website.
The benefits of the Global Knowledge Network are:
  • Getting to know what other organizations exist and what they are doing. This is not only useful to the individual network organizers but also to the network members themselves.
  • This leads to opportunities to support and promote each others activities and to share KM material. e.g. exchange of banner ads and promotion of each others meetings, conferences, workshops, products and other services.
  • It allows members to access the broad array of KM resources on each others websites.
  • It allows network organizers to keep each other informed by e-mail of significant KM events/opportunities in their area. For example, the country visit of a high-profile KM speaker or facilitator.
I am sure there will be many additional benefits that will emerge over time - that is the intrinsic nature of a large network.
The Global Knowledge Network is for organizations that are societies or networks - organizations that have people as members - as the prime objective is to connect like-minded people together around the globe.

The Global Knowledge Network is not limited to organizations that are focused solely on knowledge management. It also includes networks focused on KM related topics such as intellectual capital, learning, creativity and innovation. Any network whose aim is to improve human or organizational potential.
If you would like me to add your network to my network directory or work more closely with me then please get in contact.
