The Knowledge Management Capability Assessment Tool (KM CAT) looks at everything from your KM strategy to how KM is funded, the governance in place, the processes and approaches, the technology, and the sophistication of your measures. It measures your KM program against APQC’s Levels of Maturity, a five-step maturity model for KM programs. Your results will reveal the overall maturity rating for your KM program, as well as your maturity rating in each of the 12 component areas, such as measurement, change management, and IT; providing you with more meaningful, actionable content that will support your continued journey toward knowledge management excellence and business impact.
In the assessment tool, you'll find that each characteristic of KM maturity has a question with pre-defined answer options. You simply select the answer option that best fits your current state. You simply select the answer option that best fits your current state. You also have the ability to provide notes/comments to justify your responses.
