This book's unique perspective stems from its "knowledge diamond" framework to examine how individuals, communities, organizations and host industries reciprocally influence each other in the course of knowledge work. * This highly topical book focuses on work-based projects as a focus for organizational learning. * Establishes the link between individual, community, organization and industry learning. * Suggests that organizations need to recognise and understand this link if they are to capitalize on project-based learning. * Incorporates material on project-based learning in virtual communities. * Refers to different examples, such as the film industry, the software industry and the boat building industry. * Includes end-of-chapter questions provoking reflection and discussion.
