Are you focused on climbing ladders or increasing your value?

Room at the top for the people with the white hats is getting scarce as the work force ages. Everyone wants a white hat and fewer people are willing to get their hands dirty. Meanwhile, the trend towards a flatter management structure continues. This reduces the need for white hats even more. What is a seasoned worker to do for advancement if there are no more ladders to climb? How does one increase their value? Your primary goal should be to move away from work that can easily be outsourced or automated and move towards activities that are not easily commoditized. Organizations need smart people who can shorten the time to achieve objectives, not simply good workers who can easily be replaced.
