Back in July this year this article mentioned that Knowledge Executives would be announced. Unless I have missed it I haven't seen the announcement. have there been any new Knowledge Executives? If so who are they?
Bear said:to date most of the updates have been through Bentley's Twitter account.
I don't treat Twitter can be promoted a main announcement channel. My experience is Twitter is great as a channel for short news, but more official announcements are always published also on web. I see Bentley Systems Twitter channel has about 9k followers ... many local channels have much more. And where to provide information and announcements about Knowledge Executives, that is community appraisal, than on the community web?

I believe that the term Knowledge Executive is over blown and conceited. In contrast, the accolade Most Valued Professional (MVP) is used extensively in the software industry. There's no point in having letters after one's name if nobody understands the significant of those letters. Knowledge Executive is an invention of Bentley Systems and, it seems, you have difficulty yourselves in explaining its nature.
Why not revert to the MVP programme, which is common currency?

I am not sure about the program, but we have not died for sure :-))))
... which for me is just a proof that knowledge sharing in community does not depend on a formal appraisal. On the other hand it's a shame and loss for Bentley they are not able to maintain such program. Why it's so big problem when so many companies are able to run similar programs in a consistent manner for years?
I expect it's not astonishment such answer isn't excessively dependable. Stuart's inquiry is almost two years of age and all Bentley reactions has offered ambiguous guarantees as it were. From outside, nothing has changed up until now. In world that likes lithe methodology and a typical target is to convey a gradual incentive in fourteen days cycles, the two years looks more like dinosaurus time scale.
I don't comprehend what is the new stage you referenced, however my inclination Bentley does not utilize existing learning and abilities sources: If planning such program, I would have accepted that you will mastermind exchanges (or other kind of collaborations) with both existing BeMVPs/KEs and clients in networks. It's as I would like to think the best way to locate the best fit and harmony between organization's long haul methodologies and focuses on, clients' locale needs and desires and learning sources (MVP/KE) exercises and ability to help. By and by I am almost certain one from reasons why Knowledge Executive program was destined from first moment was a reality it was structured in an ivory tower in clean office room without a connection to genuine world.
Possibly I missed something, yet I don't think about such movement (while a similar methodology is utilized as a standard method to get criticism about Bentley beta variants with progress I think).
