Hi Gauri, I happened to reach your blog through www.km4dev.org. I am a New Delhi-based journalist and communications professional.

Till May-end, I was senior editor (online) with the Outlook group. I have more 18 years experience in journalism, communications and content development.

I am now in the process of transitioning into the development sector.

I am quite keen to develop my skills in knowledge management. I needed your advice on how to go about it. Should I go in for a course or should I try and learn it on the job?


Thanks and regards,

Vijay Srinivas
