If you dislike change, you will enjoy irrelevancy even less!
We are sitting at the crossroads of two different worlds of work. We all know this intellectually. Everyone talks about it. Then why is it taking us so long to change things? Our present organizations are often disconnected and misaligned. This disconnect between the new reality and blind adherence to old operating structures is creating an organization operating chasm that can and will have serious strategic implications.
The old work paradigms of the past focus on:
- BAU – Business as usual
- Maintaining the routine
- Planned growth
- Global expansion – unlimited green fields
- The emergence of the age of the Knowledge Worker
- Legacy organizational structures and practices rooted in the past
