“The only irreplaceable capital an organization possesses is the knowledge and ability of its people. The productivity of that capital depends on how effectively people share their competence with those who can use it.” – Andrew Carnegie
Unlike last century’s most valuable assets – production equipment – this century’s capital is “Knowledge Workers;” a new generation of professionals whose productivity will become the most valuable asset. Institutions now value knowledge workers not only for their ability to run the equipment but also for their ability to analyze information and apply their expertise.” – Peter Drucker
“A Knowledge Network signifies a number of people and resources, and the relationships between them, that are able to capture, transfer and create knowledge for the purpose of creating value.” – Niek Du Prezz
“In this era of tough global competition, organizations must look for ways of generating extra value from their assets. People and information are two critical resources increasingly being recognized as valuable. Knowledge Networking is an effective way of combining an individual’s knowledge and skills in the pursuit of professional and organizational objectives. It is a rich and dynamic phenomenon in which knowledge is shared, developed, and evolved.” – David J. Skyrme
