The value of the knowledge worker
Peter Drucker: (1959)
Drucker believed that employees are assets and not liabilities. He taught that knowledge workers are the essential ingredients of the modern economy.

‘Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes‘

“The purpose of an organization is to enable ordinary humans beings to do extraordinary things.”
Doug Engelbarth (1968)
