By now, it’s old news that Millennials are entering the workforce in droves. Its old news that mobile work is gaining speed, and its old news—even ancient news, by todays standards—that employment and management is fundamentally changing. The problem is that many of us still don’t know what the future of work really looks like. Without a big-picture perspective on what the next few years hold for employees, managers, and organizations, how can we really understand how to adapt? We know we need to change and challenge convention but that is like having an address without a map. Finally, Jacob Morgan has provided the map. The Future of Work fills in the gaps in our understanding of what is next for the workplace. This is not a distant-future perspective, but rather focuses on the near term, clearing the fog for employers and employees alike. With new technologies at our disposal and the light-speed pace of communications, we can expect things to change very rapidly. Keeping up with and taking control of those changes depends on an understanding of why work, as we know it, is fundamentally dead and where work is going next.
