Book Abstract


“I believe that 90+ percent of white collar jobs will disappear or be reconfigured beyond recognition within 10 to 15 years.”

– Tom Peters

“The fundamental unit of the new economy is not the corporation but the individual. Tasks aren’t assigned and controlled through a stable chain of management but rather are carried out autonomously by independent contractors. These electronically connected freelancers – e-lancers – join together in fluid and temporary networks to produce and sell goods and services. When the job is done, the network dissolves and its members become independent agents again, circulating through the economy, seeking the next assignment.”

– Thomas Malone and Robert Laubacher, The Dawn of the E-lance Economy, Harvard Business Review

The paradigm of the previous era was that employment for life on a corporate payroll was the ultimate in job security and achievement. The new paradigm of the emerging brain-based economy is:

Each person has to act like an independent contractor – even if they are paid by the company.Each person has to add tangible value – or be replaced by better alternatives that will.Each person is totally dependent on their available skill sets – which must be upgraded on an ongoing basis.Each person is judged solely on their track record – the projects that have completed successfully in the past.

In short, everyone today must treat themselves and their careers as if they are a professional services firm with a total staff of one – themselves. To build the value of their firm, everyone must view themselves as a brand.
