    13. 13. DEFINITION “The knowledge based economy” is an expression coined to describe trends in advanced economies towards greater dependence on knowledge, information and high skill levels, and the increasing need for ready access to all of these by the business and public sectors. - Organisation for EconomicCo-operation and Development OECD, 2005, “The Measurement of Scientific andTechnological Activities: Guidelines for Collecting and Interpreting Innovation Data: Oslo Manual,Third Edition” prepared by the Working Party of National Experts on Scientific and Technology Indicators, OECD, Paris, Para. 71.
    14. 14. The UK Department ofTrade and Industry defined K Economy as a knowledge driven economy in which the generation and exploitation of knowledge play the predominant role in the creation of wealth (Economic Research Services Department, 2000)
    15. 15. Rationale of K- economy 1. To achieve sustainable rapid economic growth - The knowledge based economy will complement efforts to improve economy-wide productivity through enhancement in TFP (Total Factory Productivity). - The knowledge-based economy will also spawn new activities for investment within existing industries as well as create new industries. - The introduction of high-technology and knowledge-intensive production processes will offer new investment opportunities within existing industries
    16. 16. 2. To sustain competitiveness - Malaysia is facing increasing competition for its labour- intensive and lower-end manufactured products from the lower-wage and resource-rich developing economies such as China, Indonesia andThailand -Malaysia will need undertake productivity improvements in traditional industries and at the same time, enhance its technological and knowledge capabilities to move into the midrange and higher-end products. - It is also imperative for local industries to move along the value chain into related upstream and downstream activities
    17. 17. THE STAR PM: Government to continue with policies supporting knowledge-based economy •The prime minister said, he believed in building a knowledge-based economy as one way for Malaysia to achieve sustainable growth and remain globally competitive • He also mentioned that the government will focus on the social impact of the policies, and be aware of the government responsibility to ensure that the knowledge-based economy does not widen disparities between various sections of our society

    19. 19. Knowledge workers are versatile, autonomous, and highly skilled and are able to leverage and build knowledge to produce useful action with very strong and analytical skills
    20. 20. The importance of Knowledge workers • Key to the growth of many economies - for example, in biotechnology manufacturing, or in precision farming," where the amount of fertilizer and pesticides administered to a given crop are carefully monitored using GPS devices in tractors“
    21. 21. • Knowledge workers tend to be closely aligned with the organization's growth prospects - Knowledge workers in management roles come up with new strategies • Firms with the highest degree and quality of knowledge work tend to be the fastest-growing and most profitable - for example, Microsoft is among the most profitable organizations in the history of the planet
