What will organizations and work be like in the future? Who will survive and prosper? Knowlege Capitalism reveals haw the shift to a knowledge-based economy is redefining firms, empowering individuals and reshaping the links between learning and work.

The author charts the change in the business/knowledge landscape with arresting clarity and an impressive range of evidence, including illustrations from leading companines. Every page contains something that will make you think about how you and your organization will need to adapt. Knowledge Capitalism provides a practical tool-set for anybody wantint to interpret and manage change in the new economy.
