Social KM Certification - Online for New Students

Format: Online, for New Students - Welcome!


Learn Social KM Methods; Foster Enterprise Collaboration and Community Management.


It is a well-researched fact that 80% of what we know about our jobs
is in our heads and only 20% of that knowledge is codified in any form. 
This is the specific challenge that Social KM seeks to address.
What is Social KM?

Social KM provides the means and the context for people to easily share at speed what they know and like, to
locate expertise and to grow the company knowledge base in an natural, organic way that delivers far greater
value and meaning than traditional databases and folder structures.

Put another way, Social KM is like an ubiquitous ‘water cooler’ moment, a place where people and ideas meet independent of location or job role but driven by defined business objectives.

And the big win on offer? The creation of a living, breathing company ‘playbook’ that exists independently of the people who have contributed to it.

Today there is an increasing business imperative to deliver Social KM and its attendant Collaboration Culture in organizations globally.


Ideal for anyone tasked to lead or refresh a Collaboration strategy.

  • Participate.  Attendees range from line of business users to HR leaders, IT experts, and from newcomers to seasoned practitioners, project managers to CKOs, public/private sectors, and just about everyone in-between.
