On the Enablement, Deployment and Management of the Breakout Workforce
AbstractRadical changes in the way new Information Age industries are created and in the business models that drive them, have initiated an Age of Content launched by an invisible workforce. Implications of the break-out leadership that launched a massive breakout workforce are considered. The roles that education, learning and training will play in preparing the breakout workforce as it expands in the future are examined. Current Business Management practices are questioned and a model is proposed for how all these forces drive radical industrialization.
