​Aristotle famous quote: “The Whole is greater than the sum of its parts” best sums up the motivation as well as the envisaged value behind establishing the KM Global Network. Just like the story on “Unity is Strength” where an old father demonstrated to his children the power of sticking together in order to harness the collective strengths of each other, the synergistic and collaborative nature of the KM Global Network provide the platform for practitioners and enthusiasts to unite and advocate KM for the betterment of the community as a whole. An added advantage is also to further accentuate the great work that the respective network entities have already accomplished.  The KM Global Network is rooted in the free spirit of collaboration and sharing - in the forms of knowledge, experiences and innovative ideas - to achieve cross-fertilization among the multi-disciplines of KM. It is bounded by three key principles:

Sharing with No Boundary

The network promotes responsible sharing facilitated via both electronic and face-to-face channels, breaking down geographical and time barriers.

 

​Learning from Everybody

The network promotes individual as well as collective learning among members in a respectful and cordial manner.


Collaborating with Expert Bodies

The network promotes collaboration among members, leveraging on individual as well as expert bodies embodied in the network. It is also the vision to continuously identify and grow the expert pool to serve its members and community.
