  12. 12. Discussion Questions: 1. How do you see the format, organization, and concept of ‘work’ changing in the next 10 years? What are the implications? 2. How can we prepare the next generation for these changes? Or will the changes in technology, connectivity, and access to information simply act as change agents? 3. What can organizations do to prepare for and take advantage of these changes? Where are organizations falling behind? 4. How can an organization or an individual balance planning for the new world of work with the short-term challenges and needs of simply running their business? 5. How do we need to adapt or create new workplace or personal technologies to best take advantage of all of these changes?
