Post(s) tagged with "reworking work"
John Hagel debunks the technology primacy of Race Against The Machines (Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee) by suggesting that the way that work is structured makes it liable to be ephemeralized by technology. Hagel says this is a time to rethink how work should be done. He doesn’t use the term ‘postnormal’ but he makes the case that in a world of higher complexity, rapid change and uncertainty, we need to rework work itself: to restructure our institutions, rethink what people are supposed to be doing, and refactor the meaning of work and our place in it.
