Sample text

For the moment, both the management techniques and the technology are primitive. 4 Once the project is finished, most of the information and knowledge tends to disperse, and the next project has to begin almost at the beginning. People rarely write good final reports—most have already embarked on the next project by the time the first one comes to an end. A company’s best hope here may be to save the accumulated unstructured information: e-mails, reports, hasty notes of conversations. Inevitably, this is less useful than storing such memories in the human brain.

Openness becomes a corporate strategy. Another result will be a change in familiar boundaries, starting with the firm itself. Collaborating with other companies will become easier and less expensive, as will linking various operations with and between firms and buying everything from management skills and innovation to the human resources department. The boundaries for employees will be redrawn too: those between home and work, as people work from home and shop from work, and those between the individual and the company, now that the knowledge and skills of some employees may account for a large part of the value of the company they work for.

These various collaboration tools have another advantage: They will in the future allow the sort of information normally available only in corporate back offices to be readily accessible to people in the field. A salesperson, while heading for a customer’s office, might be able to discover whether the customer was happy with the relationship so far, or to pull up a record of the customer’s past transactions. Eventually, the effect will be to turn a company’s customers and suppliers into one large collaborative network.
