Time Frames for e-Knowledge

Experiencing Continuous Reinvention


The next several years will witness dramatic advances in Web technologies, standards, e-knowledge marketplaces, enterprise infrastructures, processes, as well as individual and organizational capabilities to handle e-knowledge.

As a result enterprises will experience cascading cycles of reinvention in their best practices for e-learning and knowledge management. e-Learning and knowledge management will be pervasive, integrated into enterprise activities, and for all practical purposes, fused. These cycles of reinvention are starting today in leading-edge enterprises. They will accelerate and continue for decades. Many of the new practices will come from new competitors and from outside North America.

New business models and strategies will emerge that capitalize on the changing value nets for knowledge. The new business models will reduce the unit cost of content and knowledge and create new combinations of knowledge, experience, and performance that can command market premiums from users. As revenue streams are readjusted, enterprises will need to aggressively open new marketplaces for their knowledge. Communities of practice will become the dominant organizational form for creating and stewarding knowledge, spawning new mechanisms for creating insights and synthesis.

In the process of these cycles of reinvention, enterprises will reinvent their knowledge ecosystems — infrastructures, processes, competencies, and cultures.
