Personal Knowledge Management: An Underused Skillset

Personal knowledge management (PKM) is probably the most important skillset for today's information-deluged world that you were never exposed to in school (at any level). We all practice some kind of PKM, even if only by sticking files in a directory on our computer that we never end up looking at again.

Why You Need This Course

Carla O'Dell, a "mother" of knowledge management once noted, "if only we knew what we know."  Most of us are being deluged by information, but we have no way of holding on to and organizing the information that would serve us well in the future.  As a result, we misplace or forget a lot of the information that might have served us well in the future if we could just remember it.

What Customers Are Saying

A revolutionary tool

This personal knowledge management course will open your mind to a revolutionary tool that will greatly enhance your professional skills. Mark Trexler is an outstanding communicator.

Excellent intro to knowledge management

This course is an excellent intro to PKM (Personal Knowledge Management) with TheBrain software. I've been using the pro-version of TheBrain for many years, but there is one feature I missed, and that's using pre-set search terms. That alone made this course worthwhile for me (and was the reason for buying the course). Thanks, Mark, for pointing that out!

A powerful software system

We appreciated being pointed by the Climatographers to TheBrain® software for purposes of developing our own knowledge management system. TheBrain®, including the TeamBrain version we are using, is both simple to use and very powerful.

Insightful and helpful

Yes, very insightful and helpful to see an actual brain.

Nice introduction!

This course isn't (and doesn't pretend to be) a how-to on using The Brain software. Instead, it provides a good intro to the capabilities of The Brain and the various ways you can put it to use, within the broader context of knowledge management.

Just the right pace

Clear presentation, great pace.
