Abstract:Continuity and change will mark the rubbery boundaries of a manager's worklife 50 years from now. Information technologies will facilitate and improve the handling of such issues as education and training, while cultural elements in a globalized world will raise new problems. While American English will be the lingua franca, it will be far from the universal culture, which will demand new levels of managerial sophistication. The unionization of R&D managers will create new benefits, including sabbaticals, profit sharing on inventions and discoveries, and sophisticated training to keep up with new developments. Anonymous electronic voting on merit and credibility will guide relations with a firm's top management.
