How Many Thought Leaders Does a Company Really Need?

        posted by , July 03, 2011

Good ideas are common — what's uncommon are people who will work hard enough to bring them about

Does business really need thought leaders who neither manage people nor do any hands on work?

The Knowledge Economy

This 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.
