I know have something meaty to ponder while riding my riding mower this weekend.  Coolio. 

Jim McGee.  A shift from managing knowledge to coaching knowledge workers.  Excellent.

The fatal flawin thinking in terms of knowledge management is in adopting the perspective of the organization as the relevant beneficiary. Discussions of knowledge management start from the premise that the organization is not realizing full value from the knowledge of its employees. While likely true, this fails to address the much more important question from a knowledge worker's perspective of "what's in it for me?". It attempts to squeeze the knowledge management problem into an industrial framework eliminating that which makes the deliverables of knowledge work most valuable--their uniqueness, their variability.
