In 1989, Charles Handy predicted a future in which workers had more, shorter ‘careers’ trading on a portfolio of individual knowledge and skills. He suggested that fewer people would work inside organisations and that we would not be able to “use people as human resources, as if they were forklift trucks with brains, to move around at our disposal. These new workers have minds of their own and have to be persuaded rather than told what to do. They have to be led rather than managed, and that's very difficult and very different.” The future is here.
