I have been reading a piece entitled Managing Professional Intellect.

I am reading a piece from the Harvard Business Review on Knowledge Management. Here is the citation:
Quinn, James Brian. Anderson, Philip and Finkelstein, Sydney. Managing Professional Intellect: Making the Most of the Best in Harvard Business Review. Harvard Business Review on Knowledge Management (Boston, Mass.: Harvard Busines, 1998).
After posing the problem and the ideal situation in the workplace, the solution these authors point to is computer systems. They also make a claim at non hierarchical organizations and customer focus but I can see through their description as nothing more than slight of hand. And no this does not help one manage one's own learning and managing one's own knowledge. I think these guys are nothing more than high tech sales boosters. These guys are promoters of the digital age, end story.
