The new divide: the workforce gap

This new divide – which apparently widens daily – is between the old workforce and the new. I am not talking here, necessarily, about age. What I am talking about is the difficulty that a certain segment of the workforce is having grasping the rapid shifts in the way that business is done, mostly because of new collaboration and social media tools.

Great article with which I agree and on two points particularly. It is not about age but about mindset and the gap is certainly there and increasing.

In fact I was thinking the other day that that is where I see my work lying - helping to bridge that gap. This has meant that I am spending less time at the bleeding edge and going to less geek conferences but I do seem to be able to make the gap seem smaller to people and even get some of them excited about crossing it!
