Long-Term Career Survival

Throughout the book we’ve emphasized how critical it is for you to take responsibility for preparing and positioning yourself to advance your career. We can’t predict exactly what will happen in our field in the next few years, but we can guarantee that organizations, industries, employment, and education will continue to be redefined and reshaped. We know that the transformation of training, HRD, and workplace learning and performance will continue. We already know that job security and automatic career progression are passé. Survival and achievement now have new rules.

I see two roads ahead of me: 1) moving more into marketing as the fundamentals of my current work and marketing both rest on understanding others and communicating effectively; or 2) continuing to move more into OD, working with systems and structures, not just people and culture.

—Geoff Pickens, intercultural business specialist, Procter & Gamble, Japan
