MG Taylor Producers

MG Taylor's producers form a network of Enterprises of One which support and facilitate MG Taylor DesignShop® events, Navigation Center™ environments, knOwhere® stores, and other project and process related work that supports MG Taylor's mission. As Enterprises of One, our networkers choose to contract their services to us for a variety of reasons--to develop their skills as Knowledge Workers, to learn about and support MG Taylor's processes and environments, or to work with clients and projects that they believe will help them create what they want to create in life. This website serves in part as a resource for Knowledge Workers. This page organizes the pages on the site that will be most relevant to Knowledge Workers: the philosophies behind "Knowledge Work" and "Knowledge Workers", and standards and practices for Knowledge Workers. For a more general introduction to MG Taylor Corporation, please visit the "Management" section.
