Adapt or Die: The Strategic Role of Learning in the On-Demand Enterprise

Adapt or Die: The Strategic Role of Learning in the On-Demand Enterprise
The message of the article is essentially that "the current market economy places a premium on innovation, new business models and new ways of organizing work."
