Between fierce competition and lightening-fast technology improvements, we’re now in an age of perpetual job uncertainty.

Onlignment

We continue with the second part of chapter 11: It’s possible to apply the model very generally across a large population, say an organisation’s entire workforce, and this may help in making very general policy decisions; but the model will be most useful when applied to a relatively heterogeneous group, whether that’s a vertical slice of the organisation (by department, by division, by region) or horizontal (by management level, by level of experience and so on).
