The Future of Management: Global Trends and Possible Scenarios of Development of Managerial Profession
Being a cross-cutting profession, management is engaged in different types of activities which is why its current and future position should reflect the modern transformations of work and professions. It also should reflect changes in the object and the conditions of governing. Given such a perspective this paper studies the trends that can shape the future of management in the coming decades and its likely professional development. The chapter explores significant global trends in work, knowledge accumulation, the status of professions, the new role of ICT which are seen as drivers of the potential future of professional management and contribute to its transformation from semi-profession to super-profession, super-authority or enterprising management service. These three perspectives are regarded as three different scenarios of the development of the professional management.
