As the week trundles to its inevitable close, I’m trying to summarize some differences between the old Industrial Economy and the new Knowledge Economy. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far:
As you may realize from these blogs, I’m trying to develop a new model of leadership for the Knowledge Economy as the needs are so different from the Industrial Economy. I’m looking for more differences between the two economies so if you can think of any, please let me know.
A few thoughts:
Industrial vs Knowledge:
Job Titles – Purpose and Actual Skills
Vertical Management – Teams
Classes of People – Individuality
Compliance – Nurturing
Highest paid is always right – The right idea is always right
Interesting input and thanks for it. I like the classes vs individuality and compliance vs nurturing.
Anytime! Glad to help out.
Industrial Economy Knowledge Economy
Transactional Leadership Transformational Leadership
Vertical Leadership Shared: employee empowerment & self-leadership
Thanks for the input. I like the transactional vs transformational leadership and I’m going to ponder that one for a while.
