…deep and wide



A few years back, while watching an American tv show that, from a given group of Americans, most of them did not know what H2O was while all of them knew everything about the Kardashians. I think this reflects something on American educational system and how well they manage the knowledges on their fellow Americans.

However, I think they can still live their lives happily if at least they really know something related to their works which earn them money without having to know a single thing about chemical compound.
Besides, what would be a benefit of knowing H2O besides not to sound less intelligent while discussing chemistry with family and friends over a dinner table.

As a Thai famous poet once said: "One does not need to know everything, but an in-depth knowledge of a certain thing can bring one a fortune."

The question is....if the employees are knowledgable only how to do their jobs properly, should that be efficient for the organisation and the employees themselves?? ...is it enough?

Is it necssary that an employee have limited access to only information/knowledge related to his job?
I think it is enpough to make the wheel turn, but it is not enough to create new knowledge or make an organisation an innovative one.
