The future workplace environment: one within which personal growth and professional development are most likely to flourish 3 décembre 2014
Par Robert Morris - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Years ago, Peter Drucker asserted, "The best way to predict the future is to create it." I agree but there are always forces that are beyond any one leader's or company's control. Hence the importance of recognizing emerging trends, especially those that may indicate a paradigm shift. For example, after Henry Ford introduced the Model T in 1908, the owner of the #2 buggy whip manufacturer recognized its potential implications and began to prepare to manufacture and market automotive products. Within a year, four of the other top five went bankrupt. To a significant extent, the future of work is determined or significantly influenced by the impact of disruptive innovations, with the Internet and Web only the latest examples.

I agree with Jacob Morgan: "Many organizations around the world today are in trouble. The world of work is changing around them as they remain stagnant. The larger the gap grows, the greater the chance becomes that these organizations will not survive." This is what Marshall Goldsmith has in mind in one of his latest books, What Got You Here Won't Get Your There. Presumably Morgan as well as Goldsmith agree with me that what got you here won't even enable you to remain here, much less get there.

Morgan cites "The Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work" in the first chapter, any one of which - all by itself - poses significant challenges to organizational leaders. New behaviors, for example, will be shaped by social media and the Web whereas ever-expanding globalization initiatives will eliminate all traditional boundaries. The "there" to which Goldsmith refers becomes more difficult each day to define.

Morgan is spot-on: "Employees are bringing new approaches, attitudes, expectations, and ways of working into organizations. Managers must adapt to this new way of working by changing the way they lead, which then forces the organization as a whole to adapt to employees and managers."

Long ago, Charles Darwin observed, "It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change." In Chapter 11, Morgan presents a six-step process for adapting to the future of work:

1. Challenge assumptions.
2. Create a team to help lead the effort.
3. Define your "future of work."
4. Communicate your "future of work."
5. Experiment and empower employees to take action.
6. Implement broad-based change.

For each of these, Morgan carefully explains how to complete it. He urges his reader to make certain that the right questions are being asked. Obtaining correct answers to the wrong questions can destroy an organization faster than almost any other activity I can imagine. I suspect this is what Drucker had in mind when insisting, "There is surely nothing quite so useless as doing with great efficiency what should not be done at all." Almost all of the information, insights, and counsel provided in this book -- as well as the six trends examined -- are relevant to almost any organization, whatever its size and nature may be. Successful companies will be those that attract new talent, build better leaders, and create a competitive organization. Those that don't will have no future. What has always been true in the past will be even more true in months and years to come: The most valuable workers insist on a culture within which personal growth and professional development are most likely to flourish. I commend Jacob Morgan on a brilliant achievement. Bravo!

As the Controller of an Executive Suite company, our industry defines the shared office space concept which Jacob's idea of "coworking" reflects. His book is not just thoretical but pragmatic considering the evolution of the company as well as the employee. He provides the framework to adapt to the Future of Work.

As the author says, "The future of work that will either happen to us, or because of us" 10 septembre 2014
Par Lee Troxler - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
How refreshing to hear a younger view on the rapidly changing workplace when typically older views, from those molded by the old structure, carry the day. Jacob Morgan speaks with the authenticity of the millennial, though he’s a bit older, I suspect, and his insights should gain more and more traction as Millennials stamp their thinking and desires on an economy so long defined by boomer whims.

Morgan begins with the obvious: that business needs to change, and everyone knows as much, but that alone is like having an address without a map. He maps the organizations thriving without the 9-5 cubicles, without command-and-control strictures, without chewing up employees and instead treating employees like the essential golden partners they are.

It’s the new, open, collaborative future in which the best businesses are creating environments where “teams dynamically assemble.” And it is a “future of work that will either happen to us, or because of us” with the term “late adopter” being synonymous with “out of business.” Which is why Morgan’s book should be on night tables of the Free-Agent-Nationistas and the Fredrick-Taylor-Rocks crowd as well.

I wish Morgan had spent more time on the artificial-intelligence and adaptive-learning systems gaining traction in the better companies, since as he did say, technology is the central nervous system of tomorrow’s organizations.

He ran through the usual nods to AI-driven supercomputers besting Jeopardy champions, diagnosing patients, answering customer service inquiries, and processing legal documents.

And he did tease, “Imagine having this type of virtual ‘smart’ assistant in your workplace that can help you figure out projects to work on, answer questions for you, actually do some of the work for you, and assist you in your work life. Most people with an iPhone already have access to Siri. Now imagine having something like a more powerful and more intuitive Siri for your workplace.”

But there are some great companies bringing AI to the everyday workplace, and they’ll be the disruptors to watch!

Lastly, the infographics alone are worth the price of the book. Morgan’s 10 Principles of the Future Manager, Evolution of the Manager, 14 Principles of the Future Organization, and Evolution of the Organization belong up on the walls of all of us looking forward to a dramatically different world of work, one in which change is not just a constant, but an accelerant.

Hat tip to Jacob Morgan and his team

Food for Thought 15 décembre 2014
Par Kug - Publié sur

I wrestled with the rating on this book but decided on a four. It is well written, well researched and my struggle was a personal one. I'm a retired corporate guy and have seen and heard much of what is in this book starting back in the eighties. Back then Daryl Conner was a leading change guy, as was John Naisbit I believe was his name. I would have given it a five star but its a personal thing, where I don't agree with a lot of what is outlined in the book. Having said that nothing says I'm right either. Back in the eighties I enjoyed reading books like this and they helped me as I went up in management. No one has a crystal ball but lots of what is in here is food for thought. If you're in leadership anywhere this is well worth the read.

A great framework for thinking about (and creating your plan for) the future of work 8 septembre 2014
Par Andy Jankowski - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a company owner, and student of all things enterprise communication and collaboration, I found Jacob's book refreshing, insightful and practical. There are many people writing about "what the future of work will look like" and while these prognostications are both interesting and necessary, they do not (imo) provide the guidance needed to effectively think about and take action in preparation for these changes. Jacob's book provides a framework for thinking through how the future of work may impact your business and what you can do now to proactively take advantage of these changes. I view this as a must read, and apparently, I am not alone -- the endorsements for this book (on the first few pages) are pretty amazing. Enjoy!
