The Future of Work

Someone I think of fondly as my personal information watcher, Gary Price, alerted me to this new report:

The Future of Work: What It Means for Individuals, Businesses, Markets
and Governments

http://www.aspeninstitute.org/publications/future-of-work

The Future of Work: What It Means for Individuals, Businesses, Markets
and Governments
examines the challenges to conventional notions of
work and organization brought on by new digital technologies and
trends. As the velocity of change increases, institutions and
individuals must adapt. Yet various structures, including those in
education, government, business and the economy, remain rooted in the
past. The report captures the insights of the Nineteenth Annual Aspen
Institute Roundtable on Information Technology, where business
leaders, technologists, international politicians, academics and
innovators explored how global structures and institutions are being
confronted by 21st century realities of distributed knowledge,
crowdsourcing, open platforms and networked environments. It also
shares the solutions these leaders proposed for preserving individual
well-being and defining a future world of work that benefits everyone
involved.”

Download the publication for free. (66 page PDF)

Or you can order it for $12.00US.

The report is written by David Bollier, whose work I have read many times so it is well written. If you prepare people for the workplace or serve people in workplaces, then this is a worthwhile read.
