Knowledge Management Education and Training in Academic Institutions in 2012

Denise Bedford


This research suggests that a mature academic discipline is grounded on a mature academic program. The research defines five dimensions of a mature academic discipline, including: (1) curriculum design; (2) nature and coverage of research; (3) faculty credentials and status; (4) academic program administration; and (5) program goals. In 2012, an open public survey was conducted to determine the level of maturity of academic programs. The results suggest that while there is progress in curriculum design, the remaining four dimensions - research, faculty credentials, program administration and program goals - are immature.
