I’m publishing a short series of essays that explore alternative future models of work, and designs for the Organisations and structures of education and reward that sit behind it. These are shared as fragments of thought, not a complete picture, intended as a spur for discussion, not a prediction or an answer.
Today i am working on the second of these pieces, which will explore ‘Qualifications into Capability’, which is really an alternative view of how we structure our work, education and career. It presents a model where ‘career’ is superseded by ‘opportunity’, away from a linear model, into a networked one, where the quality of your leaders and mentors, community, and guides, takes precedence over more formal structures of career.
The central idea is that great leaders, and strong organisations, will present a series of opportunities, with both self directed, and fully supported, development opportunity, probably short form and highly modular, alongside formalised recognition (probably blockchain based) of experience.
I aim to publish this full piece tomorrow.
