This paper explores the change of the organizational environment from a structured production model, bureaucracy to an information based organization which is directed to mange knowledge. Moreover this paper discusses how organizations, and leaders can all play a part to enhance knowledge transfer and create more efficient organizations. Max Weber, the 19th century philosopher and father of sociology, proposed a revolutionary idea of what organizations could become and how through this structure they could service humanity. Weber's timely vision was the catalyst which allowed organizations to be the caretaker of society in a time when countless numbers of people needed to raise their standard of living.
