Paths to the e-Knowledge Future

Tracking the Indicators of
e-Knowledge Economy


The Knowledge Economy requires learning to be tied directly, immediately and explicitly to the performance of individuals, teams, communities of practice and the enterprise. e-Knowledge will change how learners experience knowledge, especially just-in-time knowledge and tradecraft-rich knowledge. In the process e-learning and knowledge management will both grow and become fused.

Knowledge Age learning will focus on the strategic needs of the enterprise, not just filling competency gaps or developing human capital for future use. Strategic, enterprise learning will balance between structured/ directed learning and unstructured/autonomic learning. Directed learning will be launched by enterprises to communicate and change their strategy, culture and/or products and services. It will involve individuals, teams or the entire enterprise. Autonomic learning will originate within the enterprise, initiated by individuals and communities of practice at grassroots level. It relies on enterprise infrastructures but will not be explicitly directed by enterprise-level leadership.

Expeditionary migration paths to the e-knowledge future will be enabled by changes in Web technologies, standards, and marketplaces for e-knowledge. A second driver will be developments in enterprise knowledge ecologies —infrastructures, processes, capabilities and cultures. These two forces will enable cascading cycles of reinvention in enterprise best practices, business models and strategies for both e-learning and knowledge management.
