The one thing I have learnt over the last few decades is that the future is actually here now. The trends and threads of what happens in the future start in the past. It is the pace of dissemination of trends and the twists and turns in their development that determines whether or when they become widespread and what they actually look like in the future. One thing is a constant in the history of work and that is change – sometimes rapid, sometimes imperceptible.
For me the network is the place of work and this has been happening over the last couple of decades – moving work into the virtual world, and agile working is a stepping stone into this world.
I came across an interesting slide presentation about The Future Of Work. I will leave you to draw your own conclusions about whether you think this is the future you see. But the clues are all around us. Let me know your thoughts.
