  63. 63. Final Thoughts “It is a world in which comfort with ideas and abstractions is the passport to a good job, in which creativity and innovation are the key to the good life, in which high levels of education—a very different kind of education than most of us have had—are going to be the only security there is.” Nearly every segment of the workforce now requires employees to know how to do more than simple procedures—they look for workers who can recognize what kind of information matters, why it matters, and how it connects and applies to other information.” Source: “Measuring Skills For The 21st Century” E.
