Moria Levy is the founder and leader of a KM consulting firm offering knowledge sharing, retention, and development projects. She is a KM researcher, author, speaker, and community leader, with expertise in knowledge retention and the KiSure methodology.

In 1998, Moria established ROM Knowledgeware, a firm specializing in KM with 40 employees. She developed new methodologies addressing intranets, lessons learned, knowledge retention, collaborative knowledge development, and more. These methodologies, based on field work, were later the basis for her research papers and books.

Moria led the first worldwide initiative for a KM standard: the Israeli KM standard SII 25006 in 2012. In 2015 she was chosen by the International Standards Organization (ISO) to lead a team of KM experts in developing a global KM standard. This resulted in ISO 30401 — Knowledge management systems, a comprehensive compass for knowledge management excellence.

Moria led the first initiative worldwide for high school studies specializing in knowledge management as part of information and data sciences studies, a program running in Israel for over a decade. As the Israeli KM Forum chair, she joined KMGN, the KM Global Network, turning her personal vision into the organization’s. She led KMGN in the development of two innovative KM courses, one focused on AI and KM, and the other on advanced KM methodologies. During her 2022 tenure as KMGN chairperson, the organization doubled from 12 to 25 involved countries and networks. Moria leads the “Designing the Future for KM” committee for KMGN and has helped establish Global Knowledge Week.
