2. Convert Theoretical Research into Documented, Actionable Practices, Tools and Methodologies.

3. Apply practices, tools and methodologies through Contract or Grant Funded opportunities in conjunction with our Non-Profit and For-Profit Alliances.

Knowledge & Innovation from THEORY to PRACTICE, a Continuum with a Global Reach

I2KI began with the George Washington University (GWU) program in 1997 which was accredited in 2000 as the first KM University Program in North America through the Doctoral level. The first dissertation in May 2000 validated a Four Pillar Model (Leadership-Organization-Technology- Learning) which established the basis of the Curriculum/Syllabi for Hundreds of Graduates including some 36 PhDs by 2014. I2KI continues its focus on Theory through Education via Research, Training, Workshops, Seminars, Organizational Transformation and Change Management, but challenges theoretical precepts to stand up to the rigors of tested practices in the “real world.”

More than a Decade of Teaching–Training–Facilitation founded on the Philosophy of “Theory to Practice – a Continuum” has yielded multiple Models/Books/Journals/Papers/Tools/Practices/ Methodologies and an extended International Network.


Theory is best proven through adaptable, results based practice over the course of time, and captured by experiential learning.  I2KI has taken what it has discovered through Theory, fed it into its Theory to Practice “Engine” and taken what it has learned through Practice as feedback to refine and improve its Research and Theory components.  This “feedback loop” ensures that I2KI sustains its continuous and idealistic “lifelong Learnership” principles and demonstratable results.  These improvements have brought Efficiencies, Effectiveness, and Innovation in the Private/Government/Academic arenas through our Strategic Planning, Knowledge Enhanced Infrastructure (KEI)*, Technology Impact Analyses, Mentoring/Coaching, and VUE Virtual Universal Environment, an Integrated Enterprise System Architecture of Human, Structural and Relationship Capital Assets.
