Seven Future Trends in the Workplace.
Satterlee, Brian; Craig, Will
In the future, seven trends--already firmly established--will become dominant in the world of work. Those trends are as follows: (1) middle management positions will continue to be cut; (2) project teams will be assembled for a single purpose; (3) more women will have executive leadership roles; (4) organizations will continue to increase their use of subcontractors; (5) more workers will telecommute from their homes; (6) lifelong learning will be more important; and (7) strategic advantages will accrue from the acquisition and control of information. Although most of these trends overlap, the one issue that seems to resurface is that everyone is responsible for his or her own outcomes. Individuals must invest in themselves, learn new skills, and develop new relationships. (Contains 11 references.) (KC)
