…one that could drastically affect how we look at workforce development. The one element that I don’t think that the author takes into account is the current move toward outsourcing IT overseas. If I can procure my technology knowledge workers as a commodity, does that degrade the incumbent IT workers – perhaps making them less valuable in management’s eyes? And what of the potential/untapped creative/innovative capacity of incumbent IT workers?
Lots of loose ends to tie up on this one. But, most definitely, thought provoking.
