The Five Forces of Change


This visual depicts the Five Forces of Change that are affecting the nature of work, our nature of workers and the nature of our organizations.

The Five Forces of Change are comprised of:

  1. Exceptional pattern of technology change
  2. Social and organizational reconfiguration
  3. A truly connected world
  4. All-inclusive global talent market
  5. Human and machine collaboration

When these forces are impacted by shifts in the world population – from changes in fertility to an aging population – combined with technology empowerment via innovations like the cloud and the Internet of things (IoT), then we see major changes for the future of work.

The macro and micro trends make one thing clear – the workplace, and our workers, are evolving and organizations need to prepare. Are you ready to embrace the Five Forces of Change?
