PWC: Managing Tomorrows People: The Future of Work to 2020

The PricewaterhouseCooper team has identified three possible ‘worlds’ – plausible futures to provide a context in which to examine the way organisations might operate in the future:

1. Small is beautiful, the Orange World: Companies begin to breakdown into collaborative networks of smaller organisations; specialisation dominates the world economy.

2. Companies care, the Green World: Social responsibility dominates the corporate agenda with concerns about demographic changes, climate and sustainability becoming the key drivers of business.

3. Corporate is king, the Blue World: Big company capitalism rules as organisations continue to grow bigger and individual preferences trump beliefs about social responsibility.

Can the three worlds co-exist?
