The Knowledge Worker is all about the future, and how we move from the KNOWN to the UNKNOWN. This will be critical in a fast-moving, complex and uncertain global economic, social and political environment where rapid and persistent change will be the norm.
In the book, “Evolution of the Knowledge Worker:” Transforming the Future U.S. Workforce. The author provides a brief causal analysis of knowledge acquisition through 6000 years of humankind’s development in our so-called Age’s. Through these historical patterns, the author demonstrates how western civilization has arrived at the present state in the Information Age during the last 2500 years of western civilization’s existence.
In our current economic, social and political state, the author uses empirical facts to describe our probable future. This probable future will depend on the actions we implement strategically now and in the future.
The author presents some of the cultural and systemic issues existing in the U.S., as the global economy accelerates in the Information Age. As well as models and solutions we may use to structure our collective mindset, processes and systems to remain economically relevant through the next century.
The author provides insight from his thirty plus years as a Senior Professional Human Resource (SPHR) leader, business executive, entrepreneur, and political scientist, to understand the importance of the Knowledge Worker’s role in the Information Age.
