“In a few hundred years, when the history of our time will be written from a long time perspective, it is likely that the most important event historians will see is not technology, not the internet, not e-commerce. It is the unprecedented change in the human condition. For the first time – literally – substantial and rapidly growing numbers of people have choices. For the first time, they will have to manage themselves. And, society is totally unprepared for it”. PETER F. DRUCKER, 2000

Drucker said this with the idea that we would have figured it out by 2020.  Today, we are still struggling with change as if it were to be expected sometime in the future.  
It has all changed right in front of us!    And, as a result, many of our professional services need to change and be approached from this NEW PERSPECTIVE.    Organizational Leaders, HR Professionals, Space Planners, etc..
Drucker also said that “Everything you learned in school was wrong!”
Perhaps we should rethink our professional perspective from a point of reality and not the assumptions of the past.
