The Rise of Knowledge Workers

3 days of the condor

In 1975, Three Days of the Condor with Robert Redford highlighted the profession of CIA researcher, a non-combat, non-covert department of the spy organization. Redford played a standard “knowledge worker” who was propelled into the world of espionage. He got the bad guys, got the girl, and learned to shoot a gun.

While most of us in a similar position will likely not be chased by the government, it points to a necessary section of most organizations that gets less glory than the “front line” professions but that, for all intents and purposes, helps drive the world for everyone.

The business of knowledge is growing. In many cases, its amazing growth is still too slow compared to the amount of knowledge acquired every second of every day. This graphic by our friends at SocialCast shines a light on the profession and takes a look at the past, present, and future of knowledge workers.

This all seems pretty reasonable. Knowledge building is already moving further and further from the office. Having humans all together in the same place is useful for many things, including getting projects done on time, but a majority of knowledge gathering can (and sometimes must) be done somewhere besides the office. Hyperconnectivity is rapidly becoming reality.
