Did you get attracted to some quantitative backgrounds? Contribute to our survey:
GfWM was among the first networks to deliver answers; Barbara Geyer from FH Burgenland helped by activating her alumni network of KM masters. Pavel Kraus activated the Swiss Knowledge Management Network. Madanmohan Rao, Rudolf D'Souza and Randhir Pushpa activated their Indian KM networks.
And many friends helped to spread the call for participation in social media, such as: Carina Goffart, Elena Schüßler-Roggenhofer, Gesa Kraus, Günter Koch, Susanne Durst, Nakentoh Kenneth, Wolfgang Keck, Rajesh Dhillon, Alexander Koblinger, Mathias Nussbaumer, Leif Edvinsson, Ulrich Schnabel, Bart Verheijen, Annie Green, Elena Perrier, Ritu Grover, Rob de Graaf and many more.
The Co-Chairs of KMGN Faiz Selamat and Moria Levy and the members of the Board of GfWM: Franziska Raabe, Andreas Matern, Sabine Wax supported with valuable advice. Julia Bornemann was very helpful in copy-editing the text.
