I received an email this morning, letting me know that I had been mentioned as one of “the top 1oo names to know in KM” (2013 Top 11 Influencers in KM) in a report produced by MindTouch. MindTouch are a US based company and it is always nice to be recognised - being ranked 29th and making the top 30 – thank you to all who follow me!
Rankings such as these are always open to question; for example, I am not sure how people who have been published in Harvard Business Review and regularly get mentioned in main stream media (having influence through the teaching of their work in Universities through to the majority of the field adopting their thinking) are not ranked higher, which therefore impacts the credibility of the ranking, but it is still an incredible collection of thought leaders and knowledge catalysts.
The lists contains many people I regard as friends and it is good to see the people who work hard for this field getting the recognition they deserve. Regardless of anything else, I am flattered to be mentioned alongside these names and I hope you will take the time to explore their work. Also, a special mention to Stuart French (Rank 17 in the 100 names to know in KM – @deltaknowledge), and @MarkGould13 (ranked 46) thank you for your kind words and support, it is good to see your efforts as catalysts for this field being recognised!
