Popular business writers often discuss the knowledge-based economy and the intelligent enterprise. However, few explore how this paradigm impacts people's careers. Arthur, Khapova, and Richardson provide a workbook for today's knowledge workers seeking to take a composite, dynamic view of their career.

These writers have developed an insightful andpractical approach for reassessing careers in today's world of work. They also inform employers on how to support intelligent careers.
