Eclectic Bill Brantley has written a series of articles on "Signs of the emerging knowledge economy" based on his reading of a number of books recently (Toffler, Benkler, Beinhocker, Pfeffer & Sutton, McGee, Abrahamson). The last entry summarizes his thoughts and encourages us to read the books: Signs of the emerging knowledge economy: Part Four.
It's hard to decide how to summarize what he's written, since these are summaries of still longer pieces. I'll go with his five implications for knowledge management:
- Open and honest knowledge is the key to business success .
- Accurate sensing of the environment.
- Recombine instead of reengineering.
- Watch out for surplus complexity.
- Knowledge has an expiration date. Check it frequently.
