  5. 5. What is a ‘professional’? According to work carried out by Deloitte and the Professional Associations Research Network (PARN), a professional is someone who: • Builds trust • Behaves ethically • Strives for excellence • Is a reflective practitioner • Leads or instigates change • Champions their profession • Adds value Photo credit: Brooke Lark on Unsplash
  6. 6. Law Ethics Standards Qualifications Skills & competencies Culture & practice Professionalism & standards Professionalism links legal and statutory requirements and ethical practice to standards and qualifications. Formalising skills and competencies gives employers a model for CPD and workforce development. The aim is ‘standards not standardisation’. Not to homogenise the sector, but to provide a framework for excellence and make the sector easier to engage with.
  7. 7. Why professionalise? Benefits For practitioners For employers For the discipline • Recognition of skills and experience • A ‘quality mark’ for clients/employers • Differentiation in the marketplace • Improved earning potential • Commitment to ethical practice • Quality assurance for clients • Framework for workforce development • Risk mitigation and good governance • Greater confidence in outcomes • Improved knowledge sharing • Formalised routes into the profession • Access to Apprenticeships • Credibility and trust

  12. 12. Discussion points • Bearing in mind controversy about the introduction of the ISO KM Standard, how do we shape an approach to the introduction of Professional Accreditation for KM practitioners that is open and inclusive? • What do you envisage to be the main opportunities and challenges to the introduction of a ‘Chartered Knowledge Manager’ status? • How can we ensure that this is a positive, helpful and productive initiative for the KM community in the UK and internationally? • Would you take it up? If so, why. If not, why not and what could we improve?
