hotelA reminder to all (especially all those in North America) of our coming Accreditation Course, 13th-15th May in Montreal Canada. A short hop from anywhere in the East Coast and a wonderful city to visit in the Spring and the location (see photo) looks outstanding. Three days of deep emersion in Cognitive Edge methods, together with the underlying theory and a chance to understand (and be qualified) SenseMaker™ projects. There is some new material as well. I will be looking at the creation of crews as an alternative to SWAT teams and matrix based organisations along with new approaches to scenario management. Another big new theme is how to identify the different identities in play within employees and customers (a complexity/narrative alternative to profiling). The teaching will be split between myself and one of our most experienced practitioners, Michael Cheveldave so you will get a good balance of theory and practice.

Members of the Boston Knowledge Forum and the ActKM listserv get a 10% discount. If you have been on an earlier programme and want a refresher then let us know and we will cut you a deal. The 10% discount also applies if you are nominated by an existing member of the network. For those of you interested in starting a project we are developing a new offering which uses the course as a kick off, so if that is of interest email me and we can discuss.
