A Future Made for Freelancers

Technology Analyst firm Gartner describe 10 changes the World of Work will witness during the next 10 years.

Interestingly, they describe a world that is ripe for a work-force of freelancing sovereign professionals: increased peaks and troughs of activity; spontaneous teams of loose bonds and varying expertise; greater experimentation and flexibility across time and location.

For some reason, they don’t identify this major change in work structures in their list:

  1. De-routinization of Work
  2. Work Swarms
  3. Weak Links
  4. Working With the Collective
  5. Work Sketch-ups
  6. Spontaneous Work
  7. Simulation and Experimentation
  8. Pattern Sensitivity
  9. Hyperconnected
  10. My Place

Worth a quick read.
