Organisational and staff development: a virtuous cycle in the knowledge-based economy
by Fernando Belfo
International Journal of Knowledge-Based Development (IJKBD), Vol. 5, No. 1, 2014

Abstract: Organisations which are competing in a knowledge-based economy (KBE) will need professionals with singular qualifications and motivation. Individuals should be on the centre of the conception of knowledge-based firms. The development of the KBE depends on the progress of knowledge careers and accordingly, the planning of adequate incentives especially oriented to knowledge workers. This paper proposes a virtuous cycle which enhances organisational performance by one side and the development of knowledge careers, potentiating its opportunities, by another side. This mutual and positive influence can be successively incremented, cycle after cycle, creating a virtuous cycle. This perspective of positive reciprocal feedback is most suitable for knowledge workers and under a knowledge-based economy context.
