Abstract

States that in the new developing economy of the millennium knowledge is an asset that should be valued, developed and managed, since it is a component of the intellectual capital of an organization. Reveals that knowledge is increasingly being regarded as a corporate asset in an age when data and information help sustain competitive advantage. Remarks that knowledge is, however, an intangible asset and so managing it creates a number of challenges in the area of human resource development, especially when workers are more concerned with their employability. Concludes that if a company values knowledge it must value its knowledge workers.
