dc.description.abstract The future South African workplace promises to be different from that which exists today. In an attempt to understand worldly events and phenomena, people constantly form and reform their own ideas, thus mental models, about how the world works. The objective of this study was to investigate how Black executives, in the South African context, experience the emergence of the future workplace. Data was collected from eight participants using the Repertory Grid technique. The participants were employed as executive managers in five of South Africa‟s knowledge environments. Results revealed that legislative, social, political and economic factors will possibly play an influential role in shaping the emergence of the setting and perspective of the future South African workplace. Keywords: South African context, future, workplace, repertory grid, Black executives. en_US
