The advent of Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, automation and digital technologies are radically changing the way we will work in the next coming decades. A report suggests people only have five years before automation and AI threaten jobs and force them to learn new skills for the workforce. The firm PwC surveyed 10,000 people from around the world, revealing people are concerned about automation, but they're also willing to learn.Trends clearly show that companies are increasingly seeking employees who can work in diverse teams, collaborate in agile environements and bring innovation to the workplace. New frameworks such as Scrum, Kaban and Design Thinking are quickly becoming the norm in all areas of work and are helping employees meet the challenges of a quickly changing marketplace.Design Thinking helps organizations innovate quickly and collaboratively and is emerging as one of the few competitive advantages in the marketplace. In the future of work, skills will be greater than jobs. If you focus on skills you open up many job options for yourself and you secure your place in the work ecosystem of the future.
