A profound shift in organisational structure


One of my favourite topics has been the changing nature of the organisation. In particular the extended enterprise, now commonly referred to as a company’s ecosystem is a major shift that organisations have only recently started to get their mind around. Most organisations still do not have a structured way of targeting, forming and managing alliances.

The other major shift in organisations is being created by the digital revolution. Not only in terms of organisation delivery through online, but the rapidly changing nature of the way people will work due to online. There is a huge shift in the  ‘democratisation’ of work or the rise of the ‘individual corporation’.  This is rapidly reshaping the way that we work and the way that we will deliver all of our products and services.

The attached article from the Economist gives a fascinating insight into the enormous growth of the ‘freelance workers’.

Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
