Knowledge Society and Contemprary Management

It is the intention of this paper to provide a critical analysis and exploration of the very topical phenomena of ‘knowledge society’, ‘knowledge labour’, and ‘knowledge worker’, and based on this, attempt to define their essence and their relationship in a multidisciplinary framework. Formed within the disciplines of economics and management, these phenomena imply a strong relationship between knowledge, education, and economy in social development projections, which points to important andragogical implications in this context, both implicity and explicitly articulated in management scholarship. In order to provide conditions for successful learning of employees during their entire professional and life span, theoreticians of contemporary management, similarly to an andragogical approach, are realising the need for the reform of formal education (school) as well, axiomatically emphasising the need for continuing training, in other words, a need for continuing lifelong education and learning, as well as for enabling these needs to be met. The results of critical consideration of these phenomena can contribute to strengthening multidisciplinary theoretical basis of hypothetical empirical research in the areas of knowledge society and contemporary management, and with an andragogical orientation.
