Let’s quickly get to our expert’s point of view
1. What trends do you see coming up in the industry – unseemly or exciting – that might change the industry for good?
There have been lots of changes in the industry. I am not certain that I have any particular insights that would make me a thought leader though. In particular, as we have moved to hybrid working models, there have been lots of changes to how we support remote team members, how we track productivity, etc. Some positions higher up seemed to be solely meeting face to face and therefore pushed for a return to office while that didn’t particularly match with the people executing the work. How certain managers might have to redefine their roles to be less meeting focused and pick up in other areas.
2. With the software industry right now, What change do you see sticking?a. Perhaps a comment on remote work and distributed teams
b. Perhaps a comment on hiring shifts
c. Perhaps a comment on attrition and paradigm-changing aspects around it
I am in the software development industry. The hybrid working culture is a new change in our working style plus technology needs have increased in these few years. Everyone is more welcoming to introducing technology in their business to make their work digital and accessible.
