From Futurist’s Magazines top 10 forecasts for 2009 and beyond

Just spotted this interesting highlight from the ‘Top 10 Forecasts for 2009 and beyond’ on the Futurist’s Magazine’s outlook report. It doesn’t bode well for Knowledge Management, but feels comforting as KM is already a thankless task and set to get harder. Knowledge transfer will become more importnat than Knowledge Management.

Professional knowledge will become obsolete almost as quickly as it’s acquired. An individual’s professional knowledge is becoming outdated at a much faster rate than ever before.

At any given moment, a substantial portion of the labor force will be in job retraining programs. -Marvin J. Cetron and Owen Davies, “Trends Shaping Tomorrow’s World, Part Two,” May-June 2008, p 41
