Replying to LO18697 --

Our differences are probably more semantic than pragmatic, Doc, but the
rhetoric we use has copnsequences.

It seems to me to make more sense that we need to rethink our praxis of
management so that both theory and practice reflect the change to
knowledge work--which has to be managed--and knowledge workers--who have
to be managed.

As the old TO's dissolve, as new structures of work emerbge, the old
structures of manage dissolve, and new ways of managing are emerging.

Certainly teaching, coaching, mentoring will be among the skills and
competences the new knowledge manager will have to have.
