Defillippi, Robert J.

Knowledge at work: creative collaboration in the global economy Defillippi, Robert J. - Oxford Blackwell Publishing 1991 - xix, 276 p.

This book's unique perspective stems from its knowledge diamond framework to examine how individuals, communities, organizations and host industries reciprocally influence each other in the course of knowledge work. This highly topical book focuses on work-based projects as a focus for organizational learning. Establishes the link between individual, community, organization and industry learning. Suggests that organizations need to recognise and understand this link if they are to capitalize on project-based learning. Incorporates material on project-based learning in virtual communities. Refers to different examples, such as the film industry, the software industry and the boat building industry. Includes end-of-chapter questions provoking reflection and discussion.
