Summary

The knowledge economy isn't coming-it's here. Your business and your career increasingly depend on smart ideas dreamed up by smart people. In fact, research shows that a handful of star performers create disproportionate amounts of value for their organizations. They aren't defined by their IQ or their academic credentials. And they aren't "free-agent" types who create value on their own. Rather, they are highly talented, extraordinary thinkers who need their organizations' commercial and financial resources to fulfill their potential.
