In his 1989 book, The Age of Unreason, Irish author Charles Handy made a startling prediction about the future of organizations.
He argued that businesses would soon be smaller and the workforce would be comprised of “portfolio people.”
And what is a portfolio person?
Handy describes a portfolio as a multifaceted career, comprised of different types of work that include fee work, salary work, and gift work. And soon, this is how we will all describe what we do — not as a job, but as a portfolio.
