Knowledge Worker Productivity

Knowledge Workers are workers who ‘think for a living’.

Knowledge based organisations are the aggregation of the knowledge and energy of the people that work for them. The essence of knowledge worker productivity management is to maximise the value from employee knowledge and energy and point it in the direction of things that create superior value – doing this will ensure optimum workplace productivity.

The Knowledge Worker


The knowledge worker is an individual that requires the right tools and resources in order to remove barriers to their productivity.

It must also be noted that a knowledge worker is a fickle worker. They can decide to give you all their energy, endeavour and knowledge or they can decide to be miserly. And as organisations become more and more dependent on them in this knowledge economy, it is critical for the long-term success of the business that the knowledge worker and their productivity is managed.

Knowledge based businesses need to create the right conditions to enable maximum knowledge sharing, knowledge ‘refreshment’ and focus on the workplace components that are going to make the biggest difference to workplace performance.
