Covers the priorities and challenges facing organisations who are increasingly focused on ‘knowledge work’; it is written from a human relations – rather than a technological - perspective. It uses real cases, backed up by evidence and analysis from a detailed study into strategic knowledge based working (KBW). The content of the book draws on two chief sources: the author’s own expertise in KBW developed over five years of blue chip KBW consultancy, and the results of a previously unpublished five year study. The book offers clear, step-by-step guidance to executives who need to understand, deploy and implement KBW.

Key Features

  • Outlines the key challenges for KBW at all organisational levels
  • Self assessment questions at the end of each of the four chapters
  • Interchapter case studies for in depth teaching/understanding


Managers and those with a need to study knowledge based working in support of a range of professional qualifications in HR or management

Table of Contents

‘A perfect storm’ - all roads lead to knowledge; Managing knowledge-based working and knowledge workers; The new rules of organisational behaviour for knowledge-based working; The implications of knowledge-based working.
