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.

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.
"[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
