Constant innovation, constant disruption

This article or rather the one it links to, says the increasing pace of change is normal in the new economy.


"Innovation is disruption; constant innovation is perpetual disruption. ... [R]obust growth sustains itself by poising on the edge of constant chaos."

If this is true, then the skills of self-management become ever more important. Knowing and defining your own career path, whatever your role, is going to be a crucial success factor in coming years (in fact even now).

What does this mean, though, for those who struggle to get by? The people who genuinely can only cope with a day-to-day, 9-to-5 job? How can Unions and Employers help people in this new world?
