For about 8 years, he was engaged in
the formal "craft" of
knowledge-construction as co-founder and co-CEO of INFAC
(which produced knowledge products in the area of industry
research and information).
Subsequently, he became engaged in the
knowledge-construction i.e., how are knowledge products
and communications of consistently high standards and effectiveness
created and delivered by diversely gifted and motivated
workers in a plural society.
This work led to the profound realization
that knowledge, in itself, is merely a resource - whether
in the form of books, data, or even as recorded insights
from those who "knew". Knowledge, to be truly
useful and valuable, must be living - alive - in the hearts
and minds of men who cope everyday with challenges from
a relentlessly transforming and demanding world.
This has led to his present definition
of knowledge-construction as an "emergent response"
to life's challenges.
