Disruptive view of the future

Gary Hamel is one of the leading management thinkers around. Every time he speaks, he is worth listening to, and whilst you may not always agree,  there is always depth to his views.

In this post he proposes that management as we know it will be destroyed by three forces of the 21st century . To quote,  “Over the coming decades, these forces will mostly destroy management as we know it”

The forces he refers to are the rapid changes in the competitive environment that just keep accelerating, the development of web based collaboration tools, and the impact of the generation just growing up to whom the net is just there, a thing that is not even considered, to repeat his metaphor, it is as transparent as water is to a fish.

As one who talks about this stuff continually, I wish I could articulate is as simply, and clearly as he does.
