Rise of the Knowledge Worker:
Emergence of the Learning Organization
Mike Sanders, PMP
Program/Project Manager at Southern California Edison.
Date: June 11, 2013
This presentation discusses the 21st century organization and their fuel called knowledge workers. Although Peter Drucker coined the phrase in 1959, knowledge workers have been mostly a concept in the decades since, truly engaged by only a handful of overwhelmingly successful companies such as Apple and GE. Today knowledge workers are being groomed and developed globally by organizations of the future to form the premier architecture of companies that will compete in the new millennia, referred to in literature as leaning organizations. As a result, the deep understanding of learning organizations through the use and support of knowledge workers will be vital to the success of the next generation project manager.
