The article I wrote for a variety of association executive publications throughout North America is getting quite a bit of attention; it examines how careers will evolve in the future as a result of the information explosion now occurring.

- an increased need for “multi-skilling”
- greater demand for “just in time skills”
- a shift from tactical to strategic skills
The article also quotes an Australian report that suggests that “65% of the children who are in pre-school today will work in jobs and careers that have yet to be defined.”
