Abstract:In days of yore, they ruled. Back in the second half of the 1990s, when hype alone could inflate share values and stock markets were caught up in a self-perpetuating state of euphoria, CEOs of hot companies became minor celebrities. This boom-time economic environment, fuelled by the effects of globalisation, accelerated deregulation and the advent of new technology, proved to be an extremely fertile breeding ground for the monster ego. CEOs delivering quarter after quarter of mega-buck profits strutted their stuff before us all, waving their magic wands. We loved them and didn't they know it.

- Above the Clouds: A Guide to Trends Changing the Way we Work
Some of us work to live. Some of us live to work. Some of us, by design or default, don't work at all. Whatever your position, as a stakeholder in today's society, there is no avoiding the complex web that is the world of work. Everyone is affected to some degree by issues such as stress and work-life balance, teleworking, offshoring, stakeholder democracy, globalisation -- the list goes on. But, as things continue to change at an ever-faster rate, what can we expect work to look like in the next five, ten, or twenty years? Above the Clouds is the result of a future studies project carried out by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), a not-for profit foundation that promotes excellence in European business. The project aimed to identify trends that will have an impact on the world of work over the coming decade.
