- Roles are being repositioned, becoming embedded more closely into business operations,
- Job descriptions are evolving to include a more strategic focus on the overall organization and its external operations,
- New skills are being prioritized to help practitioners build capacity in social innovation, external collaboration, and systems thinking.
