    Future of work - Product Manager of the Future

    The new normal is accelerating the future of work and shaping a new outlook for product managers on what the future of work could look like. The Future of work prior to the pandemic was geared towards which jobs could be automated through artificial intelligence and robotic process automation. The OECD has now defined the future of work as : "The future of work is now. Digitalisation and globalisation have sparked radical shifts in how we live and work. The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has accelerated these beyond anything we could have imagined. These changes raise essential questions about the precarity of our jobs, the support available if we're unable to work or retire, the skills we need for current and future jobs, the quality of those jobs, and what voice we have in shaping these outcomes".

In the years ahead the role of a product manager will evolve  into a mash up of varied skillsets covering both business and technology and a convergence of roles. There are many factors which are pointing to this new world of product management.
