ABSTRACT
The author outlines the three forces that transformed the nature of organizations. First, economic change has shifted the balance of power away from the organization and toward the individual since it focuses on human knowledge. Second, technological change has reshaped the organization through fast, flexible systems, facilitating direct communication. Third, the demographic change has included women into positions of authority and influence. These three changes, according to the author, worked together resulting in a rapidly shifting landscape.
