SAPVoice: Why Organizations Without Hierarchy Really Work

SAPVoice: Why Organizations Without Hierarchy Really Work | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Imagine a huge, complex organization where no one is in charge.

Can’t see it? Well, look in the mirror. One example is that thing sitting on top of your shoulders called your head.

The human brain has 85 billion nerve cells, with many thousands of interconnected processes happening simultaneously. Or think about our massively Networked Economy. Highly complex systems like these have structures and coordinating mechanisms, but are also highly adaptive and self-managing. Nobody is in charge.

What Happens to Society When Robots Replace Workers? | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

The technologies of the past, by replacing human muscle, increased the value of human effort – and in the process drove rapid economic progress. Those of the future, by substituting for man’s senses and brain, will accelerate that process – but at the risk of creating millions of citizens who are simply unable to contribute economically, and with greater damage to an already declining middle class.

Work - but not as we know it

Work - but not as we know it | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Talking about the future of work, says Canterbury University wearable computing expert Professor Mark Billinghurst, remember when there was a girls' typing class at school?

Ah yes, 3Gen clattering away on heavy upright typewriters between classes on Pitman shorthand and bookkeeping. The nation stocking up on its supply of secretaries.

All that effort training for something and not seeing the changes already coming. In the 1970s they might have got, what, a decade or so's use out of those skills?

And now the pace of technological advance is approaching warp speed. As Billinghurst, head of Canterbury's Human Interface Technology lab, asks, who the heck is going to have the job they originally trained for in another 20 years?

danah boyd | apophenia » Frameworks for Understanding the Future of Work | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Technology is changing work. It’s changing labor. Some imagine radical transformations, both positive and negatives. Words like robots and drones conjure up all sorts of science fiction imagination. But many of the transformations that are underway are far more mundane and, yet, phenomenally disruptive, especially for those who are struggling to figure out their place in this new ecosystem. Disruption, a term of endearment in the tech industry, sends shutters down the spine of many, from those whose privilege exists because of the status quo to those who are struggling to put bread on the table.

A group of us at Data & Society decided to examine various different emergent disruptions that affect the future of work. Thanks to tremendous support from the Open Society Foundations, we’ve produced five working papers that help frame various issues at play. We’re happy to share them with you today.

The Future of Work – five reasons why you are (probably) unprepared - diginomica | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Today’s workplace is the most diverse work environment the world has ever seen. It’s the most multi-generational, with up to five different generations working together – each with different skills, experiences, work habits and motivations. More of our workers are freelancers and long-term contractors as companies optimize for fluid operations. But if you’re like most companies, you’re probably unprepared for the opportunities this presents to improve productivity, talent development and employee engagement.. Here are five reasons why

Shivon Zilis - Machine Intelligence | The New way of Work | Scoop.it
Computers are learning to think, read, and write. They’re also picking up human sensory function, with the ability to see and hear (arguably to touch, taste, and smell, though those have been of a lesser focus). Machine intelligence technologies cut across a vast array of problem types (from classification and clustering to natural language processing and computer vision) and methods (from support vector machines to deep belief networks). All of these technologies are reflected on this landscape.

Remote Workers Viewed as More Productive

Remote Workers Viewed as More Productive | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Remote workers appear to finally be getting some respect from their in-office peers, new research finds.

While there has long been a perception that employees who work from home don't work as hard as those in an office, perceptions are shifting, according to a study from Dell and Intel. More than half of employees globally now believe that their peers who work from home are just as productive, or more productive, than those in the office.

De organisatie-ontstopper

De organisatie-ontstopper | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

Waarom zijn veel verhalen over organiseren en veranderen zo enorm abstract? Doordrenkt met gerationaliseerde meningen en conceptuele beschouwingen bieden ze nauwelijks houvast. Het op afstand bekijken van de dagelijkse praktijk door de bril van verzonnen gedachtekronkels laat een fictieve werkelijkheid zien. Een bedachte organisatiewereld die mijlenver staat van wat mensen letterlijk meemaken en feitelijk ervaren.


Wordt het niet eens tijd om hier mee te stoppen? Ik zeg van wel. Vandaar een nieuw initiatief. Een platform voor lollige, ludieke en leerzame momenten uit het organisatieleven gegrepen. Gericht op het delen van praktijkervaringen onder het mom: Daden die doen stromen. Het bevat miniverhaaltjes en anekdotes over voorvallen waar we iets van kunnen opsteken. Het zijn immers vaak de kleine dingen die een groot effect hebben.

The post-hierarchical organization

The post-hierarchical organization | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

The way we manage our organizations is largely ineffective for the complex challenges we face, whether driven by the environment, demographics, economics, or politics.

Hierarchies assume that management knows best and that the higher up the hierarchy, the more competent and knowledgeable that person is. But hierarchies are merely centralized networks. They work well when information flows mostly in one direction: down. Hierarchies are good for command and control. They are handy to get things done in small groups. But hierarchies are rather useless to create, innovate, or change. Hierarchies are ineffective when things get complex.

The third great wave

The third great wave | The New way of Work | Scoop.it

MOST PEOPLE ARE discomfited by radical change, and often for good reason. Both the first Industrial Revolution, starting in the late 18th century, and the second one, around 100 years later, had their victims who lost their jobs to Cartwright’s power loom and later to Edison’s electric lighting, Benz’s horseless carriage and countless other inventions that changed the world. But those inventions also immeasurably improved many people’s lives, sweeping away old economic structures and transforming society. They created new economic opportunity on a mass scale, with plenty of new work to replace the old.
