Socio-engineering is a field built out of several disciplines, and could be said to be a synthesis of engineering, the humanities and the social sciences. Global leaders trained in the spirit of socio-engineering tend to be free-minded, and value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all stakeholders, regardless of ethnic makeup, intellectual leanings or geographic location. Knowledge engineering is the art of infusing the liberal arts in the practice of diverse professions in order for the debate of issues with a view to solving problems often encountered in real life but not in textbooks. The focus of knowledge promulgation for the global economy is on the welfare of all organisational stakeholders through a sound social environment for effective human interaction in managing contemporary ideas and values. Stakeholder analysis for needs and outcomes requires a design, a plan for nurturing, change management and the understanding of behavioural and emotional traits. The outcome is expected to be a synthesis of text and context that takes into account the shifting paradigms in global practice and varying societal needs. Professionals so trained distinguish logic from tradition, tradition from prejudice, prejudice from common sense and common sense from nonsense.
