After a recent presentation at the Auckland
Business School, I was asked a pointed
questionand flubbed the answer. I was asked if
my emphasis on people-development-first
amounted to keeping unnecessary workers on the
payroll. I said of course notand stopped there.
Whoops! That stopping point (no make work) has
in fact been my starting point since 1999, when I
published a 3-book series we called The Work
MattersThe Professional Service Firm50 Fifty
Ways to Transform Your Department into a
Professional Service Firm Whose Trademarks are
Passion and Innovation! The Project50 Fifty
Ways to Transform Every Task into a Project
That Matters! The Brand You50 Fifty Ways to
Transform Yourself from an Employee into a
Brand That Shouts Distinction, Commitment, and
Passion! At about the same time (actually Y2K),
I had outrageously written in a Time magazine
cover story, I believe that ninety percent of
white-collar jobs in the U.S. will be either
destroyed or altered beyond recognition in the
next 10 to 15 years. That doesnt look so
outrageous today. E.g., consider this headline
from the 11 NOV 2014 Telegraph (UK), Ten
Million Jobs at Risk from Advancing Technology
Up to 35 of Britains jobs will be eliminated by
new computing and robotics technology over the
next 20 years, say experts from Deloitte and
Oxford University.So the idea, then, in an
oversimplified nutshell, is to avoid professional
and organizational extinctionand in fact pursue
growthby vaulting up the value added chain.
Become a remarkable brand you performing 100
value-added wow projects in an organizational
unit transformed into an innovative professional
service firme.g., devoted to applying
intellectual capital to the organizations
products and services. (The overall home
organization, per my model, seeks differentiation
by becoming a collection of integrated
professional service firms.) As you will see
below, many are on this road. Consider this, for
example, from a recent Economist story
Rolls-Royce now earns more from tasks such as
managing clients overall procurement strategies
and maintaining aerospace engines it sells than
it does from making them.There is more than
one path to salvation in the face of exponential
technology changebut whatever the path, it will
require in some form or other adding new soft
services valueand transforming oneself into a
distinguishable (specialist/growth-obsessed/brand
you) professional.Or so I believe. (Wish Id
said all that in the first place.)

The root of our problem is not that were in a
Great Recession or a Great Stagnation, but
rather that we are in the early throes of a
Great Restructuring. Our technologies are racing
ahead, but our skills and organizations are
lagging behind. Source Race AGAINST the
Machine, Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee

Mr. Foster and his McKinsey colleagues collected
detailed performance data stretching back 40
years for 1,000 U.S. companies. They found that
NONE of the long-term survivors managed to
outperform the market. Worse, the longer
companies had been in the database, the worse
they did. Financial Times

Big companies have never had, on average,
sustaining success. This, too, is an accelerating
phenomenon. And, anything like normal employment

How do you hold onto jobsor increase them in the
face of these staggering forces of contraction?
How do you surviveor thrivein general? One way,
perhaps the best way, is to pursue a services
added growth strategywhich happens to also be
(more or less) people intensive.

matching viable solutions to the customers that
require them. Its equally about managing the

through to implement the solution and achieve the

differentiators of our position in the market is

entrepreneurs. When we were in the caves we were
all self-employed . . . finding our food, feeding
ourselves. Thats where human history began . . .

For Marx, the path to social betterment was
through collective resistance of the proletariat
to the economic injustices of the capitalist
system that produced such misshapenness and
fragmentation. For Emerson, the key was to jolt
individuals into realizing the untapped power of
energy, knowledge and creativity of which all
people, at least in principle, are capable. He
too hated all systems of human oppression but
his central project, and the basis of his legacy,
was to unchain individual minds. Lawrence
Buell, Emerson

You must realize that how you invest your human
capital matters as much as how you invest your
financial capital. Its rate of return determines
your future options. Take a job for what it
teaches you, not for what it pays. Instead of a
potential employer asking, Where do you see
yourself in 5 years? youll ask, If I invest my
mental assets with you for 5 years, how much will
they appreciate? How much will my portfolio of
career options grow? Stan Davis Christopher

This is the true joy of Life, the being used for
a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one
the being a force of Nature instead of a
feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and
grievances complaining that the world will not
devote itself to making you happy. G.B. Shaw,
Man and Superman
