10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Bill Godfrey on June 13, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Provides a useful analysis of the place and significance of knowledge management in the development of business and society, though it is limited in the range of societal implications that it considers.The book is well organised, with sound definitions (in a muddy field), a formidable array of facts and good analysis. The explanation of the 'knowledge foundation' (Ch.7) is particularly valuable.
Chapters 1 through 6 develop the argument that globalisation and the knowledge economy together amount to a major continuing revolution in the way the world works, and that this revolution is a continuing process, not an event. Chapters 1 through 5 work systematically through the major changes associated with the knowledge economy and globalisation, while Chapter 6 draws important conclusions for the organisation based round six major changes including the level of workforce education, changes in employment, the development of IT in general and groupware in particular, and culture shifts.
At this point, Neef introduces the critically important concept of 'high road' and 'low road' organisations and a third group of independent knowledge workers. Essentially, the world is moving towards dominance by a limited number of knowledge based, global organisations, with much of the physical production carried out by relatively small, undercapitalised, low wage 'low road' companies engaged in a 'race to the bottom' and an intermediate group of independent knowledge workers.
These corporate polarities are strongly reflected in society, with the trend toward increasing inequalities of income and wealth.
