Business consultant and trainer Kirsten Dobbertin, investigates: What will the world of work look like and what skills will people need in the future?
Looking at the current developments around technological advances and how they may impact on the world of work, it may appear as if there is only one linear path into the future. But we always have choices. Emerging new developments may disrupt existing business models at any time. It is important that we keep thinking about our options regarding skills development and ethical choices.
There are undoubted opportunities as well as challenges – politicians, thinkers, lawyers, socially responsible leaders and others will always be needed as much as people who design,build and programme the machines of tomorrow.
