Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 26, 2013 5:50 PM

My first reaction on reading the list of groups involved was negative. The University of Pheonix has a dog in this fight. They will want digital technologies to at the forefront. That is OK, but we need a balanced view of this emerging world and we need to question some of the views presented. We are not on the cusp of a relationship between humans and their digital tools. We have passed this cusp and each day we are in that emergent world. That kind of comment oversimplies a complex reality full of uncertainty.

Recherche très pertinente qui apporte un vent de fraîcheur.  On n'y parle pas des emplois du futur, mais plutôt des compétences ou habiletés requises

Martijn Spek's curator insight, April 24, 2013 7:26 AM

Interessant rapport waarbij 'Change' in organisaties en bij mensen een zeer nadrukkelijke rol speelt. De tekenenen zien we nu al bij organisaties ontstaan. Het onderzoek is welliswaar primair gericht op Amerika, maar door de verdere globalisering en internationalisering interessant voor een ieder die met mensen werkt of gaat werken!
