In the last byte, we looked at the definition of career and career management and understood why it would be important for a manager to understand career management. In today' byte we look at the chaging paradigm of career.
The concept of life-time employement in a single organization is almost a reality today - and the challenge is to create a constantly learning organisation. We use the reference book table 17.1 to understand the old and new paradims of career in this byte and the next few.
We do this on 4 broad heads in which we can look at these transitions:
- The mutual loyalty contract has given way to Discrete exchange
- The one-employer focus has given way to occupational excellence
- The top-down firm structure is now one of organizational empowerment
- Corporate allegiance has given way to project allegiance
We shall look at these closely in the next byte.
