    Our system of using the OFO for identifying skills needs through WSPs and developing QCTO qualifications is preparing the workforce for occupations that won’t exist in the 4th IR workplace. “Five years from now, 35% of skills that are considered important in today’s workforce will have changed.” (World Economic Forum, 2016) People’s relationship to occupations is already more fluid as people move flexibly between occupations. My article motivates why we need to rethink the relevance of the OFO and QCTO model as new “occupations” emerge, permutate or disappear before HR can develop job descriptions – and the occupations can be registered on the OFO.
