The era of work begins

The workers of the 21st century have been educated by adults of the late 20th century, who continue to use techniques that were valid in the middle of the last century.


The 21st century, due to digitization and the massive use of technology has changed the way of competing, but most importantly, the soul of organizations, people and organizational structures remain unchanged.


Digitization is about technology, transformation is about people

Charging a fixed salary, and having a fixed schedule, makes the manager mediocre, limiting his growth. Think about it, by hiring someone with a fixed salary, in the end you will be paying them to GO to work, NOT to work. The manager of the 21st century has to work by objectives and not by schedules. They have to be independent and capable of adding value. The figure of the Interim Manager is a clear example, they are senior managers who are temporarily incorporated into the companies to impact the income statement, carrying out a specific task and charging only for objectives.


You cannot compete in today's world with organizational structures or managers that were competitive in the 20th century.
