Beschreibungen

Knowledge Services Management looks at the transformation of the traditional workplace into a quasi-internal market environment where work activities in knowledge services are organized around clusters of similar or complementary knowledge stocks to address particular types of customer-clients priorities. The book explores a new internal market structure for these service organizations and the implications this presents for managers and scholars in the 21st century workplace. By adopting an internal market perspective, the book develops new organizational forms outside the traditional hierarchical paradigm, which is ill-suited for the emerging knowledge workplace, in order to effectively manage emerging knowledge services. The indispensable role of customer/client in the operations of these organizations is examined, as is the creation of the “Proventure Workplace”, a work environment which accentuates jobs requiring rich cognitive skills for continuing innovation and creativity.
This book explores a new internal market structure for service organizations and the implications this presents for managers and scholars in the 21st century workplace. The book develops new organizational forms to manage emerging knowledge services.
This book examines the transformation of the traditional workplace and responds to the demand for fresh approaches to the challenges faced by managers in designing knowledge services. Rapid technological development and changing economic conditions have asserted significant influence on the work landscape for both workers and management; most notably, that the means of production are controlled by workers themselves. The response is a growing awareness that the work landscape for knowledge services can no longer be effectively managed by relying on the traditional hierarchical paradigm.
Given these current challenges, the design framework presented in this book is based on internal market principles along with customer integration into the boundaries of the organization. This framework initiates new and effective ways of designing knowledge services for sustained competitive advantage. The indispensable role of customer/client in the operations of these organizations is examined, as is the creation of the "Proventure Workplace", a work environment which accentuates jobs requiring rich cognitive skills for continuing innovation and creativity. By adopting an internal market perspective the firm can integrate the science and art of management with the design realities of contemporary knowledge services.
Knowledge Services Management provides valuable tools for readers involved in all aspects of knowledge services from researchers to managers and students alike.
