About KMPC

As managers and policy makers seek to anticipate and prepare for the future, it requires that they learn how to use what they already know, learn how to become aware what they do not know, and learn how to learn what they need to know.   KMPC facilitates learning and understanding within an organization, taking into account the rational, emotional and cultural dimensions of choice. Through participative design it shapes new forms of management and organization, and helps better understanding the emergent properties of the organization in relation to its environment.
