Rise of the Knowledge Worker: Emergence of the Learning Organization
This presentation addresses 21st century organizations and their fuel, called knowledge workers. Although Peter Drucker coined the phrase in 1959, knowledge workers have been mostly a concept in the decades since, embraced by only a handful of overwhelmingly successful companies such as Apple and GE. Today, knowledge workers are being groomed and developed globally by organizations of the future. These organizations will form premier architectures that will blossom in the new millennia, referred to in literature and graduate schools as learning organizations. As a result, a solid understanding of learning organizations through the development, use and support of knowledge workers will be vital to the success of the next-generation business professional. Three key concepts discussed:

  • The definition of learning organizations, how they work and what they do.
  • The definition of knowledge workers, how they work and what they do.
  • The building and maintaining of learning organizations through the support and development of knowledge workers.
  • What you can do to be one.

The presentation includes several Harvard Business Review video clips, a 3D video (3D glasses included), and free, laminated quick reference cards.
