As the workforce continues to evolve into a knowledge-based society, the revolution from command and control management structures to virtual task-based structures will continue. Knowledge workers control a means of production and therefore have become more powerful influencers in business processes. Leaders in the new management paradigm must be good thinkers, able to reason, and benefactors of a liberal education (formal and informal). Leaders must also seek to understand the motivations of the workforce, and therefore understand the combination of incentives that have the best impact. Management theories must evolve to recognize the nature of and the need for balanced collaboration and self-organizing teams.
