Where are the non-US/UK/Aus thought leaders in KM?
Lists of KM thought leaders historically tend to be USA-dominated. Who have we missed from the rest of the world?
I published a blog post 5 years ago entitled “KM thought leaders – are they REALLY all from the USA“? In this post I looked at Stan Garfield’s list of KM thought leaders, and assessed their provenance and location, which at the time was predominantly USA and Canada (72% in total).
In the past 5 years, Stan’s list has evolved and grown, and the proportion of thought leaders from Asia, MENA, Australasia and Continental Europe has significantly increased.
However the USA/Canada proportion is still very high (62% compared to the 72% of 5 years ago).
What do you think? Is this representative? Does nearly two thirds of KM leadership come from North America?
Which non-US KM thought leaders do you think are missing from Stan’s List?
