So many projections, so little time. It’s tough to plan for a future that is in flux on any given day. We read how fast movers are introducing artificial intelligence and automation into their pipelines ahead of what is increasingly becoming the next inflection point, while other businesses are still figuring out their AI strategies.
Innovation doesn’t stop and it rarely slows down for industry laggards.
The workforce of tomorrow must prep for a future that will be fluid for a number of years until industries bake in the types of jobs and skill sets required to compete in a global market.
Getting Ready This Time
Currently in the U.S. the economy is robust and the unemployment rate is low—a buyers market for people looking for new opportunities, but tough for companies who must compete for career professionals with in-demand skills.
But just as economic cycles go up, they can just as easily go down. And they will.
It will be the “middle strata”—the program and project managers, change practitioners, and mid-level leaders—who will shoulder the brunt of organizational change in the next few years.
Now is the time to ensure that this core sector of your business is prepared to step-up and handle these challenges. Foundational skills, today, and well into the future will require the ability to reinvent the business as well as reinvent-on-the-job for evolving opportunities, while dealing productively with uncertainty without introducing unhealthy emotions, e.g., sabotaging undesirable business or workforce changes.
