Overview

Knowledge Capitalism probes the surface of contemporary economic and social change, revealing how the shift to a knowledge-based economy is redefining firms, empowering individuals, and reshaping the links between learning and work.. "Using economic, management, and knowledge-based theories, supported by empirical data and illustrations from leading companies, Knowledge Capitalism describes the emergence of a new breed of capitalist: one dependent on knowledge rather than physical resources. The author argues that industrial-era models of firm-market boundaries, work arrangements, and ownership and control are inhibiting firms' and individuals' success in the emerging knowledge economy. New models are proposed based on knowledge-centred organizations, knowledge-led growth, and knowledge supply as distinct from labour supply or flexible employment. With this book he provides a practical tool-set for anybody wanting to interpret and manage change in a rapidly deconstructing economic environment whether you are in business, working, or simply wondering what the future may hold.
