BEGINNING YOUR KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT JOURNEY
CJ Young Consulting created the Beginning Your Knowledge Management Journey course to support your knowledge management education to either refresh your education of the world of knowledge management or introduce you to the basics of knowledge management. The focus will primarily be human-centric but does address using some of the technological side of knowledge management. Beginning Your Knowledge Management Journey will launch January 21, 2021, but you must register now so you don’t miss out!

You can enroll in the course two ways: Single payment of $997 USD or three payments of $347 USD each.

This course will guide you to beginning your knowledge management journey or serving as a path to renew your KM understanding of the basics. You will get 11-course lessons that will introduce or reinforce concepts, tools, and methods of integrating and using knowledge management to support business operations, improve processes and quality, and to help improve your organizational culture and personnel interactions.
Many of us who have worked as knowledge managers or with KM practitioners have felt like we were just dropped in the deep end of the pool and learned as we tried to not drown. My experiences in the military and in my post-Navy career have included KM and I have built this course to help anyone starting out in KM or wanting to add that little kick of KM knowledge.
Registration for next course starts March 25, 2021
Next course starts April 22, 2021
If you aren’t familiar with my TEDx Talk I gave in September 2020, I shared the following:
“Inefficient knowledge sharing was found to cause businesses with approximately 18,000 employees a loss of $47 million dollars per year and those with 100,000 employees about $265 million dollars.”
Is this something you want to want to take a chance on?????
Knowledge management is knowing how to take the information you have and making it usable for you. This allow you and your organization to make decisions that affect your culture, business processing, business development, employee retention, team and organization communication, and your financial bottom line.
I built this course through 11 lessons to provide the basics of knowledge management (KM) to new KM practitioners and provide a refresher to those interested in increasing their KM knowledge.
- Lesson 1 Welcome
- Lesson 2 What is Knowledge Management?
- Lesson 3 Basic Definitions Used with Knowledge Management
- Lesson 4 Beginning Your KM Position
- Lesson 5 What Value Does a KM Program Provide?
- Lesson 6 Integrating a KM Mindset
- Lesson 7 KM and IM: Complementary Practices
- Lesson 8 Tools and Templates Used to Support KM
- Lesson 9 Methods Used in KM
- Lesson 10 Wisdom from KM Experts
- Lesson 11 Your Next Steps
This course includes:
- Video instruction with downloadable PDFs of the course material for each lesson
- Videos of KM experts sharing their wisdom and experiences
- A downloadable workbook (PDF) to support putting into reality your knowledge management challenges
- Optional reading for you that ties to each lesson to reinforce concepts in each lesson
- Live, bi-weekly group discussions on Zoom that will be recorded and sent out to all in case you can’t make the calls
- A private Facebook group page for you to collaborate and interact with your classmates as well as ask me any questions you have about the course material!
That’s pretty great for the price! No free course will provide you with all of this!
In this list, you may have noticed I created a downloadable, printable workbook as a PDF specifically to reinforce the lessons and to help you hone your skills through the course using tasks you can take with you to work and use in real-time.
You will not be able to get this KM workbook anywhere else!
Your workbook will have actionable tasks each week that will guide you through the course to gain success to introduce and implement or improve the use of KM practices in your organization.
Don’t just take my word for it. See what two of my previous students had to say!
As a professional working with knowledge, but outside of a traditional KM role, I was interested in learning more about the history and practice of KM, as well as the different tools and methods available to support implementation of it within my current role and organization. The guest speaker and class discussions were very helpful, allowing us to share experiences and outcomes from a diverse mix of backgrounds which encouraged sharing useful tips, suggestions, and best practices. This was a great experience and I am very grateful to Cindy for the opportunity to engage deeper into this topic with other like-minded professionals from a broad range of backgrounds. The experience increased my understanding and awareness of the many facets and benefits that fall under the purview of KM, and further strengthened my resolve to pursue it in my current role.
As a new KM practitioner, I was looking for an organized approach to methodically identify the topics I should know more about. The reading and coaching associated with this program helped me do that and deepened my understanding of many foundational aspects of KM.
