Mastering ISO 30401 Knowledge Management Systems
Brief Description
The course provides a detailed analysis and a discussion of the application of the ISO 30401 Knowledge management systems standard (ISO 30401 KMS).  The standard can be used to prepare organisations for ISO 30401 KMS certification or it can be used to align knowledge management capabilities to the requirements of the standard. In the latter case, the ISO 30401 KMS is used as a management system tool or guideline that will ensure that knowledge management capabilities is managed according to best global practices and will add value to organisations.
