The knowledge-based, networked economy demands new forms of collaboration between experts and organisations. Different domains of knowledge need to be integrated in order to create a new multidisciplinary approach for managing the challenge which we here call 'e-thinking'. Knowledge-based change is facilitated by the platform of modem ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and demands new and innovative concepts from the domains of e-business, e-work and e-learning. In support of a

Problems with the implementation of each of those "e-domain" approaches will be discussed and the rationale for integrating them is emphasised. Successful implementation of knowledgebased professional development is argued to be the alignment of organisational objectives, understanding of work and business processes, and knowledge about learning at work.
