The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.

 

Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.

David Hain's insight:

When I started work in the late 70's with a big company, I really thought I'd have a job for life.  I'm glad I didn't, because life has become a series of gigs.  I tell my kids they need to work on building life and relationship skills that will enable them to transfer between gigs more easily.  The soft stuff really is the hard stuff, everything technical is more or less learnable.

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.

@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.

@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.
