New challenges to knowledge and knowing. As mentioned on this syllabus, there are many issues we’re not going to be able to address in great depth this course. As you think about the future of working and organizing, what issue do we need to understand to that we can engage in better organizational leadership? For instance, you might take the gig economy, algorithms in the workplace, activists’ influences on firms, international pressures, new models of ownership, etc., and explore how this phenomenon shifts our understanding of knowledge management, communities of practice, or something else altogether. (If you choose this path, your paper should include a few directives for organizational leadership to consider near its end.)
