SAIS Global is selling KM standards developed in Australia on their website for in between $85 and $126 (dont know if australian or US dollars):
Will this be a wake-up call for the profession of KM where everyone is their own standard ? Will this bring the OZ KM movement to the frontline of the profession ?
Doubtfully. ANSI or IEEE are well known standardization committees and until the australian KM standards pass that hurdle, it may only have limited success.
Doubtlessly, I think that it shows the need of the profession and the industry for standards, for something common that people can learn, understand and apply without taking $$$thousands of dollars of proprietary training and certification courses. PUBLIC standards will allow the market to grow faster, learn faster and build stronger and consistent offerings than what currently is available.
