Today's Knowledge Worker
Today's knowledge worker's thoughts and use of intellect…the knowledge…the experience...that individuals bring to an effort are highly specialized. This nature of knowledge work assures that no single person or single function within an organization can or should attempt to “standardize” how, when or where work is done.
Further, knowledge work often involves unpredictable paths to desired results. People need to be able to make adjustments in what they are doing, and in where and with whom they are doing it, to do their best work.
Knowledge work today is done in the context of contemporary realities such as working across distance and time zones, making long commutes, accommodating multiple generations with different expectations about work, and work life balance.
These circumstances, so different from what may have been more routine in the “industrial” era, require that knowledge workers exercise a variety of choices to work efficiently and effectively. Having choice is an integral part of a successful work environment.
