How Many Thought Leaders Does a Company Really Need?posted by Anna Mar, July 03, 2011
Good ideas are common — what's uncommon are people who will work hard enough to bring them about
~ Ashleigh Brilliant
Does business really need thought leaders who neither manage people nor do any hands on work?
The Knowledge EconomyThis got me thinking about the knowledge economy — the goal seems to be to become a person of ideas who does as little hands on work as possible. The more you are talking and the less you are doing the more you are paid.
I am about 15 years into my IT career. When I think back to the 3 thought leaders I respect most — they were all hands on people. The World does need people who dwell in ideas and abstractions. However, from a business perspective this certainly has to be balanced with people who do work.
It's a knowledge economy — not an unimplemented idea economy.
