The jobs associated with 21st century knowledge and innovation workers have become less specific concerning task and place, but require more value-generative applications of what they know.

They are valued for the personal knowledge that they possess, and this knowledge gives them a competitive advantage. Knowmads are also responsible for designing their own futures. Knowmads are extensions of Peter Drucker’s (1992) knowledge workers concept, embracing the convergence of accelerating technological change and globalization.
