This book probes the surface of contemporary economic and social change and reveals 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, it describes the emergence of a new breed of capitalist, one dependent on knowledge rather than physical resources.

About the Author:


Alan Burton-Jones, formerly business development director of leading multi-national, British Oxygen's computer services subsidiary based in London, now heads an international IT and management consultancy practice headquartered in Australia. A frequent speaker at technical and business conferences, he has extensive contacts within the academic and business spheres in the USA, Europe, and Asia-Pacific.

Review:


"[In his conclusion] Burton-Jones turns to prescription for postindustrial malaise, calling for an alliance between education and industry....His contribution is to put today's instability into perspective--to explain the forces driving change, chart workplace developments from the perspective of different stakeholders, and propose how people and organizations can be beneficiaries rather than victims."--Sloan Management Review


"Knowledge Capitalism should be required reading for all knowledge managers and every person in business....The concepts are expressed with clarity and the examples are organised and in good context. This is an excellent book that will appeal to the business world as much as to the academic. Burton-Jones is to be congratulated on his deft handling of a considerable amount of complex material, resulting in a very readable volume."--Recruitment Journal


"A winner....It is the best book I have seen for a CEO on the strategy to use, if you want the best from the knowledge that exists in your organization. I recommend it for all planning teams, everywhere."--Bob Buckman, Buckman Laboratories, US


"No stone is left unturned in this sweeping and insightful analysis of the knowledge game in this new economy."--John Seely Brown, Chief Scientist, Xerox Corporation; Director, Xerox PARC


"...offers the business practitioner an excellent balance between analysis and prescription."--Hirotaka Takeuchi, co-author, The Knowledge-Creating Company
