Chartership – Rory Huston tracks the new route for KM practitioners

Professional accreditation is valuable to both the careers of knowledge managers and the future of the field of knowledge management (KM). As we’ve previously discussed in RealKM Magazine, the CILIP Chartered Knowledge Manager initiative offers significant benefits in this regard.

In September last year, we announced CILIP’s first Chartered Knowledge Manager.

Now, in a new article in CILIP’s Information Professional journal, the second Chartered KM Professional, Rory Huston, talks about why he chose the Chartership route and how it benefits his work as Global Head of Knowledge for engineering consultancy, Cundall.
