Virtual teams the norm by 2018

A survey of more than 1,000 senior executives found 74% expected “virtual teams of employees”, working at a distance from each other, to become the norm by 2018.
About 64% thought talented people would become “multi-employed,” 59% said job hopping would be commonplace and 56% said most routine tasks would be automated.
… there would also be a proliferation of “virtual” companies, often small community-based enterprises without conventional business premises.
