The Future Of Work: How Jobs Change in the Next Decade | Future of Work | Scoop.it

Gartner research analysts recently convened to discuss the changing nature of work and table some predictions for the coming decade. Their consensus view was that distributed and ad-hoc teams of people, along with blurred organizational boundaries, would become the norm for most modes of work.

Tremendous forces are radically reshaping the world of work as we know it. Disruptive innovations are creating new industries and business models and destroying old ones.

Many of the roles and job titles of tomorrow will be ones we’ve not even thought of yet.


This report takes you on a journey to 2022 and explores how the changing business landscape will impact your people management strategy.


What path will you take?

Employee Engagement and Change-ability of the Organization

Six models of Employee Engagement and how each of them has different social life. The area is conceptually messy and often misleading as if there was one single model, usually reduced to a number in a scale. Some models are better than others to create true change-ability in the organization.

The Disconnect in Connecting the Workplace

The Disconnect in Connecting the Workplace | Future of Work | Scoop.it

There’s a lot of talk about the future of work…Technology is indeed connecting us in ways that improve communication, discovery and connectivity. The world is becoming a much smaller place as a result.


Many executives are well aware of the onslaught of new technology. Many however, are unsure of how to solve the problem or even address what the problem really is for that matter.


Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

The reasons why technology fails to change behavior internally always seem to surprise executives, but rarely do they shock employees:


1. Older managers disagree philosophically with how younger employees work in general.

2. Systems architects don’t get today’s employees.

3. Technology is too painful to use and there’s a lot of it.

4. Workflow is imposed rather than designed to emulate how people naturally use technology to communicate and connect.

5. Legacy processes and reporting systems actively discourage people to adopt something new.

6. Legacy philosophies protect those who work in dated paradigms rather than encourage aging workforces to gain new expertise through learning and collaboration.

7. Management doesn’t actually reward cross-team collaboration as part of the day-to-day work.

8. Incentives to change do not align with employee goals and aspirations.

9. Leadership does not lead by example.

10. A lack of vision as to why new technology will enable business goals and why employees should buy-in.

11. BONUS: The culture of the organization is more rigid than adaptive, which inadvertently undermines any hope for innovation

Ready or Not, The Workforce is Changing! Are You Prepared?

Generation Y is taking over the workplace and it’s happening sooner than you think. By 2025, they will comprise 75% of the workforce.Due to demographic shifts, including more experienced Baby Boomer workers retiring, it is essential to engage Generation Y now so they are able to fulfill expected talent shortages in the near future. Developing a strong leadership pipeline and expertise are key to business continuity.Unfortunately, many organizations are not prepared to attract, engage, and retain Generation Y employees because they continue to use management practices that are off target.

Work Skills For The Future: Curiosity

Work Skills For The Future: Curiosity | Future of Work | Scoop.it

Curiosity is one of those traits that may seem antithetical to work, and our educational system goes to great length to ‘suppress our natural tendency to be curious’, as Jamie Notter said. It is the itch that drives us to learn about the unknown, and that has both a potential to be beneficial or dangerous.


Curiosity can be repositioned as the desire to learn, to be open to the pursuit of digging into the unknown. In a world where the rate of change is accelerating, we need to accelerate our rate of learning, and so we need to become more curious all the time.

3 New Job Titles Every Company Needs But No One Has Yet

3 New Job Titles Every Company Needs But No One Has Yet | Future of Work | Scoop.it

What would happen if businesses introduced new positions dedicated completely to imagining new ways to shake things up? Here's what that might look like. 


Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

CHIEF REIMAGINATION OFFICER 

Also known as the “Crystal Ball Gazer,” the CRO’s primary job is to reimagine issues, internal as well as external, and translate the abstracts into concrete actionables.


CHIEF PARADIGM OFFICER

The primary job is to identify the emerging paradigms that can sweep organizations off their feet if ignored. Essentially the CEO’s scout and must spot change, capture its essence, and alert the CEO to the potential dangers of overlooking them.


CHIEF PARADOX OFFICER

It is his/her responsibility to balance the focus between reimagination and response to paradigms. Must identify the exact paradox and articulate it in such a manner that the top leadership sees viable opportunities for growth rather than the distractions.

The Numbers We Overlook When Reinventing Work

The Numbers We Overlook When Reinventing Work | Future of Work | Scoop.it

The world is moving fast, the economy is moving fast, changes come fast and businesses have to keep up with this pace. Innovate, solve problems, handle exceptions faster and at scale. We can talk about that for hours but this sums up everything that force organizations to transform, either they like it or not. That will eventually lead to deeply transform the way we work.


More collaboration, more interactions, conversations, information,data. So we’ll be equipped to face the world that surrounds us. Actually…not. Overwhelmed by this waves of pushed information and solicitations, not mentioning what we’re searching or initiating ourselves, we must learn to separate the wheat from the chaff to focus on what matters.

Waiting For the Human Workplace

Waiting For the Human Workplace | Future of Work | Scoop.it

If more human workplaces are more profitable and companies still don’t build them, there must be a good reason for it. There is a good reason.


There are three of them, in fact:

  • Inertia — it’s a pain in the neck to change things
  • Bureaucracy — we took the time to write these policies and rules, so we may as well stick with ‘em
  • Fear
Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

We know how to design great products. We know how to untangle customer service snarl-ups. We know how to build supply chains that cover the globe. Surely we’re smart enough to peel the onion on toxic and dysfunctional workplace ideas and practices that suck the life out of organizations and diminish the people inside them, too! All we have to do is begin.

Brevity is emerging as an essential new business basic.
In the fast-paced, multi-tasking, attention-deficit workplaces we find ourselves, getting to the point quickly matters more than ever.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

If you can’t capture your audience’s attention and deliver your message with brevity, people will disconnect with you, and it may cost you promising career opportunities. The unspoken expectation is that successful people will be masters of brevity.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, July 17, 3:17 AM

From the article:

 

"The average person’s attention span is now only 8 seconds, and professionals are interrupted 6-7 times an hour, often unable to get back to their task at hand. More than 43 percent of us abandon complicated or lengthy emails in the first 30 seconds, and the majority of us admit ignoring half the emails we receive every day."


A useful piece on the importance of applying thought and effort on keeping your message brief whilst not losing the context.

The Future of Work is Already Here - Seven powerful models for work in the connected, collaborative, creative, Big Data economy | Future of Work | Scoop.it

There is a lingering notion in the world of business and beyond that organizations are things with four walls, that employees are people who report to work inside them every day for years on end, that work is a matter of executing on defined “KPIs,” and that success is a product of climbing ladders and exerting an ever-greater span of control. But the fact is, we’re in the midst of a great reshuffling of the talent deck.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, June 6, 6:06 AM

Organizations and leaders today must focus on unleashing human capacity—designing environments and systems for work that inspire individuals to contribute their full imagination, initiative, and passion every day—and on aggregating human capability—leveraging new social, mobile, and digital technologies to activate, enlist, and organize talent across boundaries.

 

The Management Innovation eXchange (MIX) launched the Unlimited Human Potential M-Prize to unearth the most progressive practices and boldest ideas around those two challenges. They recently announce the winners of the M-Prize, selected from over one hundred entries from every kind of organization and every corner of the world.

The Future of Work is Found in the Transparent Organization

The Future of Work is Found in the Transparent Organization | Future of Work | Scoop.it

Ford created a revolution when he put people on a production line. The new labor movement takes us off the line and into management: management of tasks, relationships, and results. Coming off the production line also allows us to collaborate, innovate, make decisions and solve problems.


People work to accomplish together what they cannot do alone. I see transparency as the key ingredient to change the landscape between labor and capital and create a results culture that becomes the new standard.  When we share the results of our labor, we all prosper. This century is our time to prosper. This is the new labor movement and our future.

Do Old School Workplace Rules and Hierarchies Still Matter?

Do Old School Workplace Rules and Hierarchies Still Matter? | Future of Work | Scoop.it

In a world where any employee can tweet their CEO, the lines that traditionally delineated power and influence have been blurred.


So much so in fact, when Dr. Jeffrey Pfeffer teaches about corporate hierarchical power structure, his students often push back. That model of power isn’t relevant anymore, they insist – it’s such 20th-century thinking!


Pfeffer’s students are largely Millennials, the youngest generation now in the workforce. They think the traditional power structure in business is changing, and companies are becoming more dynamic and less hierarchical.


They’re wrong.


Image credit: Hugh MacLeod.

 

Kenneth Mikkelsen's insight:

In a new paper that explores the notion that power structures haven’t changed much over time, Pfeffer explains the way organizations operate today actually reflects hundreds of years of hierarchical power structures, and remains unchanged because these structures can be linked to survival advantages in the workplace. The beliefs and behaviors that go along with them are ingrained in our collective, corporate DNA.
