Managing Knowledge Workers: Unleashing Innovation and Productivity

Synopsis

With the emergence of a new, powerful breed of organization--the knowledge organization--comes a bold challenge to the management of people. Employees with special cutting-edge knowledge and the ability to transform it into marketable goods and services cannot be managed in the old way. Only new ways and updated and adapted ways can work. Amar provides an in-depth understanding of who these knowledge workers are, and how to select, adapt, and develop new concepts, principles, strategies, and techniques to manage them effectively. With practical, ready-to-use assessment tools and instruments to redesign obsolescent management practices, this is an essential resource.
