The influx of new careers like AI/ML and Data Science will create a new understanding of discovering trends in data that will eventually change organizations decision making processes and vision of the future. As a result, these early career professionals will create a fundamental shift in the government hierarchal organizational structure. Traditionally in hierarchal government organizations, the senior managers have the experience to develop their conceptual skills to lead the organization to the future. However, these early career professionals will have the technical skills to recognize trends in the data that will supersede the conceptual experience. This is because the pace at which technology is changing and being adopted is accelerating faster then ever before. Unfortunately, the government is not keeping up with the private sectors pace of adopting new technology. Therefore, the early career data scientists will find themselves holding the informational power derived from the data that the senior managers once monopolized. This in turn will create a fundamental power shift that will eventually convert the hierarchical organizational structure to a network organizational structure where communication is more horizontal and managers are replaced with leaders. Recommended Ways to Prepare: The attendees need to prepare by standing in front of the mirror and repeat over and over "I will not say 'but this is not what we always have done!"
