Becoming A New Economy Manager
There is no single digital divide. The digital divide is not simply a matter of the gap between technology haves and have-nots. Behind this simple description of the rift there are deeper and bleaker gaps in literacy, skill and attitude that few of us see – even in ourselves. While commonly described as a special problem with the lesser-educated older worker in Singapore, these fault lines actually cross the entire spectrum of employment from operator to chief executive, and across the range of organisational forms. Failure to address these gaps will mean failure for workers in the market for employment and it will mean failure for organisations in the market for customers.
