Knowledge Associates Cambridge Academy UK, are pleased to launch a new online 40 module programme 'Mastering the Global Knowledge Driven Economy'.  

Be empowered to thrive in the global  knowledge driven economy. Mastering the Global Knowledge Economy teaches and develops principles, knowledge, competencies and tools, from the disciplines of knowledge management, primarily driven by people, digital transformation, innovative knowledge driven processes and knowledge platforms driven by knowledge technologies and tools such as artificial intelligence. It is now possible for individuals, teams, and entire organisations to achieve their objectives faster than ever before, and at  much lower cost, to benefit from extraordinary knowledge driven results.  

This Knowledge Associates Cambridge certification programme is led by Ron Young, founder of the Academy, together with an international and multi-lingual faculty team, and supported by an AI team and knowledge platform, teaching intensive modules in exciting and engaging new ways. 

This is a Masterclass level programme underpinned by world class ISO Standards essentials. It stimulates thought leadership and new knowledge creation at all levels.

Great innovations and new ways of thinking often come from the combination, synthesis, and synergy produced by two or more separate disciplines. This is because when people of different fields come together, they bring with them different perspectives, approaches, and expertise, which can lead to creative insights and breakthroughs.

By combining the powerful principles, knowledge, methods, technology and tools from the disciplines of knowledge management,   together with digital transformation and breakthrough innovative knowledge driven processes, and the latest artificial intelligence systems, it is now possible for organisations to produce extraordinary results.  

If we add and combine insights from psychology, neuroscience, linguistics and philosophy, this can lead us to amazing breakthroughs in effective knowledge working. This interdisciplinary collaboration is driving innovation and developing very effective knowledge driven organisations in many new ways.

This will result in higher quality decision making, significantly reduced costs, retention of critical knowledge, and the ability to achieve objectives much faster than ever before.

But how can individuals, teams and organisations, large and small, public and private, quickly understand and evaluate the benefits of these new knowledge working strategies, methods and tools. What are the best ways to implement them without having to invest large amounts of time, effort and costs?

 The power and synergy of combining human knowledge, knowledge driven processes, and artificial intelligence to achieve extraordinary results

In conferences, forums and workshops around the world, many managers are asking us 'what effect will artificial intelligence, AI, have  for them as managers? How will it impact their businesses and their current knowledge and innovation practices? So we asked ChatGPT-3, a generative AI launched by OpenAI in November 2022, the question: 

'Write me, in a story style to managers, what AI is? 

We thought it would be interesting to get another 'perspective on AI from AI'.

 So, to the managers out there,  embrace AI as a powerful tool to help you and your teams succeed in an ever changing world."


KNOWLEDGE ASSOCIATES have developed an online platform called KNOWLEDGER as a place for a growing global community of members to obtain online education, advice, consulting, systems, tools, and implementation support services. KNOWLEDGER is a membership platform to learn and share knowledge and experiences and work more cost effectively with experts. Here we frequently review new tools and evaluate how well they help us save time. The KNOWLEDGER platform is continually updated by our global experts and is underpinned by global ISO standards in knowledge management, knowledge competencies and knowledge quality management, innovation management, knowledge asset management and artificial intelligence standards  in ethical design, terminology and implementation. 

Knowledge Associates help you to understand and implement world class principles and share best practices for effective knowledge driven organisations and effective knowledge working. We achieve this by applying our 5 step approach.
