Carrillo's "Knowledge Cities" successfully challenges the prevailing urban planning paradigm with a powerful vision of a future based on the critical resource of human capital. This book is arguably the most important new book in urban planning since the publication of Jay Forrester's "Urban Dynamics" in 1969. Carrillo and colleagues have managed to carefully craft a comprehensive book that persuasively explains why the knowledge-based perspective is critical to urban development around the globe. This exciting new book is likely to soon become a standard for the next generation of urban planners and public administrators." - Steven A. Cavaleri, Senior Executive Vice President, Knowledge Management Consortium International (KMCI) Professor, Central Connecticut State University.
<br><br>
Knowledge Cities are cities that possess an economy driven by high value-added exports created through research, technology, and brainpower. In other words, these are cities in which both the private and the public sectors value knowledge, nurture knowledge, spend money on supporting knowledge dissemination and discovery (ie learning and innovation) and harness knowledge to create products and services that add value and create wealth. Currently there are 65 urban development programs worldwide formally designated as ?knowledge cities.? Knowledge-based cities fall under a new area of academic research entitled Knowledge-Based Development, which brings together research in urban development and urban studies and planning with knowledge management and intellectual capital.
<br><br>
In this book, Francisco Javier Carillo of the Monterrey Institute of Technology (ITESM) brings together a group of distinguished scholars to outline the theory, development, and realities of knowledge cities. Based on knowledge-based development, the book shows how knowledge can be and is placed at the center of city planning and economic development to enable knowledge flows and innovation to provide a sustainable environment for high value-added products and services.




Video: Gurteen Knowledge Cafe, NAB, Melbourne, October 2010



This is a short video of a Gurteen Knowledge Cafe that I facilitated for Peter Houlihan at the National Australia Bank in Melbourne in October 2010.

The session was captured on a flip cam without the use of a roving mic, so the sound is not clear and has had some extensive editing to fit into a short learning piece, but it gives a good idea of what the Cafe is all about. 

The question posed to the group as the "conversational seed" was "What if true leadership involves embracing complexity by widening the circle of involvement rather than restricting it?
