IM appears to be a school where you learn a method for organizing
information. IMO, IM appears to take a method which is public and then
privatize it for their own profit. Analogously, is someone who learned to
swim the Australian Crawl at the Four-Star International Academy of Swimming
necessarily a better swimmer than someone who learned it at the Y? No. I'm
not saying IM's courses aren't value for money, but I regret the implication
that there's something intrinsically better about having learned a method
chez them.

To me, IM poses the following threat: we should be hired on the basis of
what we can do, not on some nebulous qualification. It would be bad if
managers became convinced that all techwrs needed an IM certificate. (OTH
this would be very desireable for IM's shareholders).

FWIW contains the following blurb: "helps
clients ensure that workers and managers have the right information
available at the right time to do their jobs correctly and make effective
decisions. Our seminars and consulting services help you design and develop
effective documentation, SOPs, and user guides ? print or online. And we can
help you plan and implement strategies for keeping critical information
accurate, reusable, current, and accessible."
