Abstract

With the advent of ecommerce and the growth of ‘open’ systems communications networks, managers in industry have been confronted by the assaults of technology, an evolving employee profile and changing sets of leadership and motivational challenges. Corporate management architectures, so firmly built for the age of globalization, are today’s ruins of the global village. The virtually extended enterprise can no longer be managed with the tools of a lost era. A new management model is evolving that supports existing and future knowledge platforms and re-engineers rather than retards knowledge creation and systems. This chapter examines a Cybercentristic management model based upon a series of dynamics taken from past research, including collaborative workplace technologies, knowledge leadership methodologies and knowledge sharer and knowledge sharing networks. These are contrasted against Geocentric values. The results of this discussion are keyed into a Cybercentric teleology, constructed to form the basis for future research into the knowledge management model heir-apparent for the cyber century.
