Old (career) advice on a market with new rules?

It’s hard to imagine, but there is a report that we are excited about:
“Rewriting the rules for the digital age”
2017 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends

It is the best paper that we have found and read on how the different players on the market are dealing with the digital age. It perfectly compares the old with the new rules.

Aside from the fact that you, experienced managers, have to be ready for the on-going changes as managers / leaders, you have to be ready as individuals who still want to have a career in 5 or 7 or 10 years. Quoting a fragment: “Business productivity has not kept pace with technological progress. Data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics and other sources show that productivity growth remains low despite the introduction of new technology into the business environment. In fact […] as its lowest rate since the early 1970s […] For examples, only 12 percent of the Fortune 500 companies from 1955 are still in business, and last year alone, 26 percent fell off the list.”

The publication then shows how HR professionals, leaders and their organizations try to find solutions. The operating word being try. Nobody has the answer. Everybody is experimenting. Trial and error at its best.
