A Vision in Helsinki:
The theme was building 'collaborative advantage.'
Hosted by E100 Esko Kilpi (Finland) In March 2003, we convened our E100 Roundtable visit to Helsinki with the story - A Bretton Woods of the Knowledge Economy.
What is less well known are the plans that were put into motion to make visible the leadership concepts and experience of those within the E100. Dr. Piero Formica (Italy) and Dr. Eunika Mercier-Laurent (France) took up the gauntlet. Now the book is advance order ready NOW with 27 leading author contributors from the ENTOVATION Network representing Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Croatia, Estonia, France, Germany, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States!!!
The book is divided into three major
sections - each providing a facet of the new thinking, both in terms
of theory and evidence.
This is an emerging field in which the new principles and rules are being established as practices are experimented and policies take shape. The new kaleidoscopic economy demands novel navigation tools suited to modern management. We are learning together as a community of practitioners, inventing testing and proving new theories as we go. The students today are our knowledge leaders tomorrow; and they will be enabled with unprecedented tools and technologies at their side. Their expertise will pave the way in a new innovation frontier that connects human potential to economic results in ways we today can only imagine.
The year was 1944. In his opening Address at the Bretton Woods Conference in New Hampshire - Henry Morgenthau described the intent. That July, world leaders convened to determine how to move financial capital around the world based on stable and adjustable exchange rates. The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (The World Bank) was established with original members being those of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Today, it is well recognized we have entered a new frontier in which intellectual capital - properly leveraged through relationship capital - is rapidly becoming the new currency. It is time to plan the Bretton Woods of the Knowledge Economy.
This book offers insights and perspectives, which take the reader in unexpected directions with eye-opening conclusions. It provides a global context for 21st century management - based upon some of the finest research projects and initiatives in the world. It does not suggest that traditional financial, quality and qualitative methods are not important; they are. However, we discover increasing evidence to support how successful enterprises and nations will also need to learn how to capitalize upon the emerging qualitative measures of performance. Qualitative criteria - together with quantitative ones - enable us to measure advancements of the knowledge-based economy.
This volume of collected papers is about evolving Knowledge Age Economics - a progressive way to measure and manage critical assets into the future. It deals with individuals, organizations, communities and policymakers on the border of the innovation-based society characterized by an increasing degree of stakeholder interaction and high sustainability intensity. The purpose of this book is to provide readings in order to educate the new generation of researchers, professors, teachers, industrial and government leadership professionals.
To some extent, the authors of this book rethink and reshape the theories and efforts of the past into an emerging field of knowledge performance economics based upon progressive management principles. This modern economic foundation is destined to become more and more integrated into our practices and policies. Thus, the insights presented in this collection explain how the depth and scope of a knowledge perspective can provide opportunities never before imagined. The sustainability of our future demands nothing less.
Three new Laws of Knowledge Dynamics are discernible.
The chapters provided in the in this book are evidence that the softer aspects of measurement are worthy of pursuit and may be better indicators of progress than current GDP models. Further, we learn from these knowledge experts there are viable economic practices - as embryonic as they are perceived - that provide a more sustainable foundation for an economically equitable, environmentally sustainable and social/politically stable world.
The outline of contributing authors reads like a Who's Who of the Knowledge Economy. Take a look and find some of your favorites - and more important, their newest thinking. This is book about where the profession might be headed...be there with us!
Timely access to quality insights is the name of the game in the Knowledge Economy. And so, if you would like to order...
