In 21st century work environments, the new capital is knowledge. For this reason, it is essential to create knowledge in order to sustain one’s ability to contribute to organizations.

The knowledge economy, in which all workers have access to unlimited data and information, demands that individuals be able to translate that data and information into a relevant knowledge base. This is a critical skill that enables the knowledge to direct and define action plans that will produce results. This knowledge work activity is represented in the Knowledge Pyramid below:
