    • FutureWork focuses on Andersen Consulting's Integrated Performance Support (tm) (IPS) system. A general description of performance support systems is provided. The authors imply that performance support systems and IPS specifically can help make knowledge workers better equipped to provide high-quality customer service. The premise is supported that knowledge will become a capital asset. Considerable emphasis is placed on the importance of the "performance-centered enterprise." The authors support the differentiation between data, information, and knowledge. Several brief case studies have been included to illustrate points made.

      • Organizational learning and knowledge creation are fashionable topics in these days, and one should guess that the theoretical grounds of this field cannot offer something new as this has been discussed for quite a while now. Organizational Epistemology offers something new indeed: a thrilling new understanding of corporate knowledge creation by applying the concepts of autopoiesis and chaos theory to the question: "How do organizations create and develop their intellectual capital, their knowledge?"
