As we continue to move into the 'digital age' numerous reports and articles are being written discussing how data, and the speed at which we need to process it, is increasing. For years, knowledge workers have been able to analyze data given to them, make informed decisions and act accordingly. However, we are now reaching a point that no 'knowledge worker' can possibly sustain. The amount of data that organizations now need to process has hit an all time high and this means workers have to adapt their approach. 

I personally disagree with the statement that we need completely different types of workers and instead agree with the motion that current 'knowledge workers' simply need to adapt their approach with a bit more of a digital flair! 

For me, the business decisions that an individual can make will always be superior to statistics and trends produced by a machine.
