Good MSM summary on the future of employment - who succeeds, who fails - by John Harris of @Guardian. And another reminder of how important it is to combine creativity and social soft skills with experience of data analytics. The future belongs to Photoshop and Excel!
As Haskel and Westlake see it, the future belongs to people who can thrive in an ethereal, unpredictable world, and endlessly adapt – “product managers, lawyers, business development people, design engineers, marketers, head-hunters, and so forth”. Or, put another way, “people who combine decent data-analytical skills with the soft skills needed to broker relationships inside and outside their own company”.
