I was asked this question in an Interview. The position that I am interviewing for is middle management in a large company. I've interviewed for this position several times and they always ask the same (or very similar) questions.
I am not sure how to answer this
Please project or forecast at least five different ways that the job you are applying for will likely change and evolve over the next three years as a result of business changes, technology changes, and a faster, more innovative environment and explain how your role will be critical throughout this evolution.
The position is for a Junior IT Manager at very large international company.
The truth is that I can't see into the future and figure out what upper management is planning. They usually leave me out of these meetings.
Yet on every Interview, they ask this "standard" question.
