Organizations are beginning to understand they need to invest in and cultivate the “ideas” in their workplace as a routine part of their work; ideas are to be managed with different methods than the industrial processes that allow you to make stuff. Organizations need to encourage and capture ideas from whatever direction they come, from any individual in the team, from partners, from customers. The way we interact with information at work needs to come to feel like our interaction with information outside of work. Virtualization of the organization will continue. Changes to move in the directions above require IT innovation linked with cultural change, and lots of attention to the people and the relationships. This change can be seen as a shift from a management mentality of genius at the top and heavy control, to a millennial model of collaboration, entrepreneurism, risk-taking, sharing, experimentation, exemplified by start-up cultures.
