Written by Ron Young on . Posted in Blog, News



The work group drafting of ISO 30401 Knowledge Management Standard was completed in Singapore this week at the ISO TC260 meetings held at Singapore Management University. Next step is the review and consideration by the National Standards Organisations during Q4.
