Launching new framework: The Future of Work

Launching new framework: The Future of Work | The Future of Work | Scoop.it

I have been working with one of the world’s largest private companies, which is engaged in a strategy project looking at the future out to 2025. Today a key workshop for the project was run, where we refined the project process and I provided some perspectives on the future of work as input to the study.

 

While the future of work and organizations is one of my most important themes, I haven’t had any public summary documents on the topic. For today’s workshop and also as a first step in building out some richer frameworks, I created an overview framework on the future of work.

 

The framework probably needs some explanation, and I intend to both refine and provide more detailed explanations of the framework in the near future. In the meantime, here is our Beta v1 of The Future of Work framework.

Uber, Data Darwinism and the future of work

Uber, Data Darwinism and the future of work | The Future of Work | Scoop.it

Uber, a San Francisco-based personal transportation oriented startup, is facing a backlash from a few of its drivers. But the confrontation is less about Uber and more about the challenges facing a society being rebuilt because of connectedness.

 

A year ago, I hosted a small conclave of fellow (early) explorers of the post-html Internet. And while we are not of the SnapChat generation, most of us grew up connected. There were some who helped build the gear that runs the post-1999 Internet, and some who built the space ships. A neuroscientists who studies mobile and online behaviors, a digital musican and a music enterprenuer; data nerds, visual designers and an infrastructure wizard  who streams happiness  one stream at a time. And then there was me, who starts the day connected and ends it connected.

 

Connectendess — which is state of always being connected to the Internet and thus to people, things, life, work, commerce, love, hate and anger – is the single thought that dominates my mind, and it defines how I view everything, how I evaluate everything. It is my telescope and it is my microscope. I don’t see the world in silos called mobile, broadband, browser, app or television. Instead, it is all about being in the state of connectedness. I wanted to pick their brain about how the state of connectedness was going to change the future and redefine society itself.

Online Work Offers a Level Playing Field

Online, gender discrimination is neutralized, Elance’s results suggest. Instead of being perceived as women, female entrepreneurs and tech employees can get respect based on their skills, merits and accomplishments.

Online Work Provides Flexibility for Work/Life Balance

For working moms, whether they’re employees or entrepreneurs, flexibility is key. Virtual work enables both tech entrepreneurs and tech employees to balance their work and family time better. Sixty percent of women in the Women in Technology study say online work allows them to manage personal and professional lives.

The future of work in America: Technology and web are destroying far more Jobs than they create

The future of work in America: Technology and web are destroying far more Jobs than they create | The Future of Work | Scoop.it

We will need to develop a “Third Way” based on community rather than the Market or the State to adapt to this reality, novelist and economic commentator Charles Hugh Smith writes on Business Insider. “The Internet is destroying vast income streams that once supported tens of thousands of jobs in industries from finance to music. Craigslist has gutted the once-immense income stream from newspapers, and web-based marketing has shredded print-media advert page counts. Global competition and pressure to maintain profits and margins relenetlessly drives enterprises to slash payrolls. As a society, we need to admit that ‘free-market’ capitalism is not going to bring back these lost jobs. Thanks to technology, society is capable of meeting basic human needs (food, clothing, shelter, transportation) with far fewer workers percentage-wise than were needed in the past. But as a society, we also need to admit that socialistic solutions won’t work either. I see community as the only viable way forward. Many aspects of human life cannot be turned into a ‘market opportunity,’ nor can they be taken over by the insolvent central-planning Central State. Paying people to stay home and rot is not a solution, but neither is paying people more than they produce in competitive markets. There is a ‘Third Way,’ but we’ve lost the skills and infrastructure required. Of the three elements of civil society, the Market and the State have crowded out Community. We either re-discover the labor-value of community or we devolve further into a potentially 'death spiral' social and financial instability.”

Sense-Making Is for Humans: Stowe Boyd on Real-Time Curation in the Enterprise

Sense-Making Is for Humans: Stowe Boyd on Real-Time Curation in the Enterprise | The Future of Work | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, January 12, 2013 12:23 PM


Stowe Boyd takes a look at the story of Twitter hiring a team of real-time human curators to organize its key trending topics and why having humans making such choices is such an important element, not just for Twitter, but for any search engine or  company truly interested in what social conversations are really saying.


He writes on GigaOM: "...this sort of human curation will be increasingly important in the business context.


For example, if a competitor’s product XJ11 is being mentioned all over the social network within your company, understanding why may be critical. Perhaps they have just announced a big sale, or are selling the product line off.  But the new spike in activity is likely to be related to very recent events, and not the long tail of older piece of information about that product. And the most likely candidates to help make sense of the new trend? The people originating the cascading comments in the social communications tools.


[The] Twitter approach [with a team of real-time human curators] is one way to go, although instead of using Mechanical Turk a system that asks the originators of these trends for clarification, it might just message the earliest trend setters to ask them what’s up. Alternatively, an approach like Tumblr’s editorial teams might be employed, where individuals are selected to act as editors or curators, and to actively pull out information that is novel and important, and post it onto topic pages.


Whichever approach is taken, I have no doubt that we will see social curation emerging as a key component of our business social networking tools in the near future.


And we will still be relying on human beings as the key element of sense making, not machinery."



Important topic. Good analysis. 7/10

So...this is saying that 'social curation' is more concerned with extracting and analyzing from a diversity of social threads?
Robin Good's comment, January 14, 2013 8:22 AM
That's certainly implied, but more than that the key takeaway here is that algorithms can't do what humans can, especially when it comes to selecting, evaluating and organizing news stories.
