KMIC Specialist Programs
KMIC offers two types of Specialist Programs
1. Sector Focused
2. Role Focused
Sector Focused Programs
All of our sector focused programs are designed around the same common core curriculum of our world renowned certification programs. This ensures students have a solid foundation of understanding of proven Knowledge Management methods, practices and strategies irrespective of the sector or the Industry in which they work.
Why Re-invent the Wheel or Repeat Past Mistakes
Research and experience has shown us the knowledge challenges facing all industries are common ones: How do we prevent the loss of critical knowledge? How can we improve operational effectiveness and productivity? How do we leverage knowledge as a competitive differentiator in the markets in which we operate? etc. However the approaches to addressing these challenges can vary quite significantly from one industry to another.
At KMIC we understand the importance of "looking outside" your organization and your industry to see how others' are attempting to address these challenges - makes sense - why reinvent the wheel?
By choosing to attend one of our specific industry focused programs, you are adopting the practice of the best KM practitioners as well as the greatest innovators and knowledge builders in human history - innovation comes from building upon the ideas and best practices of others from across disciplines.
Role Focused Programs
Knowledge Management is a broad field that stretches across all the operational areas of your organization - HR, IT, Finance, Production, Research etc. While our CKP and CKM programs provide an excellent foundation for understanding and applying KM principles and practices as well as giving you the tools abd strategies necessary for designing, developing and delivering knowledge managment initiatives, we recognize that as your KM practice grows there is a need to develop areas of specialization amongst your KM team.
Aimed at mid-senior to senior level management, this is an intensive two week blended learning certification program taught by experienced Knowledge Management practitioners and delivered using a flexible combination of face-to-face sessions, self-paced e-learning, and synchronous and asynchronous collaborative sessions.
Ideal for you if you require hands-on, advanced-level training; a proven methodology for success, and tips/tools for real-world application.
