Human resources: Future challenges for workers needed

Consider how an organization will change while meeting its strategic challenges in the future. What kinds of workers will be needed? What knowledge, skills, and abilities will be appropriate? What is the compensation system and is it reflective of the market's conditions?

The organization of the public sector (public ownership) can take several forms, including: Direct administration funded through taxation; the delivering organization generally has no specific requirement to meet commercial success criteria, and production decisions are determined by government. Publicly owned corporations (in some contexts, especially manufacturing, "state-owned enterprises"); which differ from direct administration in that they have greater commercial freedoms and are expected to operate according to commercial criteria, and production decisions are not generally taken by government (although goals may be set for them by government) (Lane, 1995). Partial outsourcing (of the scale many businesses do, e.g. for IT services), is considered a public sector model. A borderline form is Complete outsourcing or contracting out, with a privately owned corporation delivering the entire service on behalf of government (Nigro, 1984). This may be considered a mixture of private sector operations with public ownership of assets, although in some forms the private sector's control and/or risk is so great that the service may no longer be considered part of the public sector. (See the United Kingdom's Private Finance Initiative.)
