    Abstract

    This paper presents a viewpoint adopting a practice-focused approach. The mind-shift argued here is one from management of people to the development of people in organizations. The new environment of innovation and fluid intelligence is explored where people may prefer not to be managed so much as to develop themselves. The paper examines the applications and relevance of the new anthropology of organizational community-building, and strategies for planned repositioning of European nations to the Australian situation such as enhancing a mobile and responsive workforce, capitalizing on the nano-age and active engagement with emerging economic superpowers. The relevance of changing industries and economic activities such as the nature of goods exchanged and global ways of doing business are explored, as well as business models for enhancing collaborative endeavors. Models and lessons for human resources and organizational leaders are presented that should add value to global business approaches
