Possible Sources: The Future of Work

I have been reading about the work of Lynda Gratton and her investigations about the future of work. Below are some excerpts from a business magazine article. I will also be looking through her blog:

To better understand the future of work, from October 2009 to May 2010 I led a research consortium of 21 companies and over 200 executives from around the world.

My research and conversations about the future of work have led me to understand that the future will be less about general skills and more about in-depth mastery; less about working as a competitive, isolated individual and more about working collaboratively in a joined world; and less about focusing solely on a standard of living and more on the quality of experiences.
