Humane Leadership must be the Fourth Industrial Revolution's real innovation

Humane Leadership must be the Fourth Industrial Revolution's real innovation | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Do we need a new type of leadership for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR)? We have heard it many times: the 4IR is not only here to stay, but is moving faster than we thought. The real question is whether leadership is also adapting to this new business environment.

Let’s start with some bad news:

The mindset shift employees need to succeed in the Future of Work

The mindset shift employees need to succeed in the Future of Work | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

When you think of the future of work, what do you imagine?

Whether your workplace is a hospital or a construction site, technology will shape its future for decades to come. That’s no longer debatable. The question is, how will companies harness technology to benefit employees and ultimately customers and owners.

Across industries, technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics have the potential to make work a more efficient and productive place and power a transformation like we have never seen. While the change will be gradual — most change is — all businesses must get prepared now.

What we’re first likely to see is worker/machine co-existence. According to a McKinsey report, even though 10 to 25 percent of work done in banks will be automated in the next few years, most work will require humans and machines learning to work together. And organizations need to get their employees ready for these bot-coworkers.

[Case Study] Future of Work

[Case Study] Future of Work | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Ready to work? It’s rapidly changing – driven by faster connectivity, new talent profiles and emerging cognitive tools. Robotics, AI and other technologies are boosting productivity, while workforces are becoming less fixed and more contingent.

Businesses need to reconsider how work is designed. To grow, continuous learning must be integrated into the flow of work, and businesses must be able to respond and adapt constantly to the changing nature of work, the workforce and the workplace.

The revolution is upon us: Intelligent Automation

The revolution is upon us: Intelligent Automation | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

The industry has defined Intelligent Automation as essentially the combination of Automation and Artificial Intelligence in the area of business process and task automation. It is finding its way into many routine business processes in nearly every sector of the economy. Automated invoice processing, customer service, clinical study management and marketing automation are all candidates for Intelligent Automation, and there are many solutions available for these applications.

Princeton Blue has completed over 466 projects in the Intelligent Automation space. We define the term a bit more broadly: it is a combination of two or more of the following technologies, using the correct emphasis on each, with the aim to improve customer experience and operational efficiency:

The rich world is enjoying an unprecedented jobs boom

The rich world is enjoying an unprecedented jobs boom | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

EVERYONE SAYS work is miserable. Today’s workers, if they are lucky enough to escape the gig economy and have a real job, have lost control over their lives. They are underpaid and exploited by unscrupulous bosses. And they face a precarious future, as machines threaten to make them unemployable.

There is just one problem with this bleak picture: it is at odds with reality. As we report this week (see Briefing), most of the rich world is enjoying a jobs boom of unprecedented scope. Not only is work plentiful, but it is also, on average, getting better. Capitalism is improving workers’ lot faster than it has in years, as tight labour markets enhance their bargaining power. The zeitgeist has lost touch with the data.

Learning in the Modern Workplace

Learning in the Modern Workplace | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

Learning in the modern workplace is about your people being able to express their thinking in different ways and methods and to start conversations.

Learning is making meaning; and making meaning comes in different forms of expression that cannot be dictated, mandated or controlled by any manager, team or department.

It’s about:

 

  • Encouraging people to take time to reflect on what they’re doing and why so that they construct their own meaning of their daily work problems.
  • Making thinking, stories and experiences visible to others and expressed in such a way that makes the most sense.
  • Not restricting learning to mean “training” or using specific tools and platforms like a Learning Management System; or attendance to workshops and classroom events.

The AI revolution is here. It's up to businesses to prepare workers for it | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

The world is witnessing the biggest man-machine collaboration in its history. As CEO of a company that is playing a key role in this technology revolution, I see a future where artificial intelligence is embedded in every walk of life.  AI will revolutionize our lives by bridging the gap between what humans are capable of and what is actually possible. It will penetrate across industries to take over basic tasks from humans, seamlessly interacting with our daily lives.

Here's how work has changed in the past 100 years

Here's how work has changed in the past 100 years | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
Over the last century, machines have replaced workers in many tasks. On balance, however, technology has created more jobs than it has displaced (Frey and Rahbari 2016). Technological progress has transformed living standards. Life expectancy has gone up; basic health care and education are widespread, andmost people have seen their incomes rise. And yet, fears of robot-induced unemployment often dominate discussions over the future of work.

The World Bank’s World Development Report for 2019 on The Changing Nature of Work (World Bank 2019) addresses these issues, analysing what exactly is changing and what needs to be done. The report argues that, on balance, concerns about robot-induced unemployment appear to be unfounded. Instead, the future of work is driven by the competing forces of automation and innovation

What does Digital Transformation really mean?

What does Digital Transformation really mean? | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

We hear the term “digital transformation” all the time, and probably too often in my humble opinion. But what does it really mean and why does it appear to be a never-ending struggle that permeates our existence? Is it a task condemning us to repeat pushing a digital boulder up a mountain like Sisyphus, only to see it roll down and start all over again?

Digital transformation is a term used by many and understood by few. So, in my usual manner (I am consistent if nothing else) I will also include another less used, but possible more descriptive term - digital disruption. M.I.T. Sloan describes it as the use of technology to radically improve performance or reach of enterprises. As always, I will resort to the handy Wikipedia to look at this further:

Tal y como destacan desde este centro, las empresas están demandando este perfil capaces de dar réplica a las necesidades que surgen de la transformación digital del mercado y que la universidad no está liderando. "Existen nuevas profesiones online para las que el sistema de formación tradicional no te preparara, porque ellos no están en la batalla, no saben lo que funciona ahí fuera", valoran.

Según varios estudios, la transformación digital, la Inteligencia Artificial y los nuevos modelos de producción y consumo son el contexto en el que una generación que, pese tener a su alcance las herramientas, ve cómo el acceso al mercado laboral se hace más complejo y eterno. "Los sistemas escolares y las universidades están obsoletos, son lentos y no trabajan de manera personalizada", valoran.

How the Gig Economy is redefining Entrepreneurship

How the Gig Economy is redefining Entrepreneurship | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

We are witnessing a major shift in the workforce. While the millennial generation represented 25 percent of the workforce in 2011, in 2017 it grew to 38 percent. This shift brings major changes to the work culture. Globalization, technologies and new opportunities are causing more experimentation around flexible ways to earn a living. Young workers want to control their workload and careers: 72 percent of millennials say they’d rather be their own bosses. Rather than cash bonuses, young professionals strive to develop personally and enjoy flexible work hours.

It’s no wonder that freelancing is becoming an increasingly popular option. One can think, “Do I work for the man tied to an inflexible Monday through Friday schedule while maneuvering the office politics?” or “Do I work at a pace and on a schedule that suits my lifestyle and/or family?” The gig economy brings this choice to almost anyone, no matter their skill or age. Graphic designers in their twenties can backpack across Asia while making $85,000 a year. At the same time, there are retired or semi-retired baby boomers generating livable income by consulting, tutoring or refinishing furniture.

The future of human work is Imagination, Creativity, and Strategy

The future of human work is Imagination, Creativity, and Strategy | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it
It seems beyond debate: Technology is going to replace jobs, or, more precisely, the people holding those jobs. Few industries, if any, will be untouched.

Knowledge workers will not escape. Recently, the CEO of Deutsche Bank predicted that half of its 97,000 employees could be replaced by robots. One survey revealed that “39% of jobs in the legal sector could be automated in the next 10 years. Separate research has concluded that accountants have a 95% chance of losing their jobs to automation in the future.”

And for those in manufacturing or production companies, the future may arrive even sooner. That same report mentioned the advent of “robotic bricklayers.” Machine learning algorithms are also predicted to replace people responsible for “optical part sorting, automated quality control, failure detection, and improved productivity and efficiency.” Quite simply, machines are better at the job: The National Institute of Standards predicts that “machine learning can improve production capacity by up to 20%” and reduce raw materials waste by 4%.

The future of women at work: Transitions in the age of automation

The future of women at work: Transitions in the age of automation | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

The age of automation, and on the near horizon, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies offer new job opportunities and avenues for economic advancement, but women face new challenges overlaid on long-established ones. Between 40 million and 160 million women globally may need to transition between occupations by 2030, often into higher-skilled roles. To weather this disruption, women (and men) need to be skilled, mobile, and tech-savvy, but women face pervasive barriers on each, and will need targeted support to move forward in the world of work.

A new McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) report, The future of women at work: Transitions in the age of automation (PDF–2MB), finds that if women make these transitions, they could be on the path to more productive, better-paid work. If they cannot, they could face a growing wage gap or be left further behind when progress toward gender parity in work is already slow.

It is not Automation: It is Intelligence

It is not Automation: It is Intelligence | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

I’ve been working in enterprise software for more than 20 years, and I’ve experienced many transformations firsthand. In the 1990s, we started talking about ERP (enterprise resource planning) software, which has been defined as “a method for the effective planning and controlling of all the resources needed to take, make, ship, and account for customer orders in manufacturing, distribution or service company." The focus at that time was to centralize information in a database that will serve as a central repository. It was easier to control and consume data from multiple modules or systems. This was the beginning of automation.

Top Oxford researcher talks the risk of Automation on employment

Top Oxford researcher talks the risk of Automation on employment | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

If you’ve been following the conversation about technological unemployment and the threat of robots and A.I. stealing jobs, you may have come across the prediction that 47% of current jobs in the U.S. are at risk of automation. That figure comes from a widely cited 2013 paper, titled “The Future of Employment.”

One of that paper’s co-authors, Dr. Carl Benedikt Frey, has now expanded on the thesis in a new book. Frey is co-director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Technology and Employment at the U.K.’s prestigious Oxford University. His new book, The Technology Trap: Capital, Labor, and Power in the Age of Automation compares the age of artificial intelligence to past shifts in the labor market, such as the Industrial Revolution.

Robots and Artificial Intelligence are redefining the rules for business execution and organizational agility in the digital transformation era!

Intelligent Automation (IA), an integration of RPA and Artificial Intelligence have ushered the fourth industrial revolution or the second machine age by challenging existing business models and strategizing new blueprints for the digital industrial era. With changing technologies, as the RPA market matures, traditional RPA and other Automation technologies will pave way for AI and analytics to support intelligent automation, integrating case management, BPM, workflows and creating intelligent automation suites which will play a key role into digital transformation.

Digital transformation of late has been very much limited to the repetitive and relatively simplistic process areas which are rule driven. Although when we combine data-driven intelligence and case management with process automation, the entire gamut of processes which can be automated or otherwise managed changes. This change in the process is bought by Intelligent Automation which broadly covers-

Robots will not steal workers’ jobs nor suppress pay, but fear of automation may be contributing to stagnant wages, according to Deloitte Access Economics.

At the National Press Club on Wednesday, Deloitte partner Chris Richardson will argue that improving technology is shifting the mix of skills in demand with employers but fears of mass unemployment are “entirely misplaced”.

In the speech, seen by Guardian Australia, Richardson says despite technological change accelerating for decades, unemployment is “close to record lows around the world” – including the US, UK and Australia.

El acelerador de la revolución digital

El acelerador de la revolución digital | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

La llamada cuarta revolución industrial, como ha pasado con sus predecesoras, exige a las empresas cambios rápidos para que la producción no pare, sea rentable e innove antes que la competencia. Pero para ello se necesita contar con una estructura ágil, pensar a medio y largo plazo y formar a los empleados de manera continua; un escenario aún lejano. No ayuda la inmovilidad de los títulos y temarios a los que parecen no afectar las demandas del mercado. De aquí a 2030, según el Centro Europeo para el Desarrollo de la Formación Profesional, el 65% de los trabajos que se creen en España serán para la FP y un 35% para la FP de grado superior y graduados universitarios. La transformación digital podría ayudar a cambiar la imagen de los estudios de grado medio y superior.

Las empresas buscan buenas personas cada vez más

Las empresas buscan buenas personas cada vez más | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

El mercado laboral está cambiando, las empresas se están cansando de los trabajadores tóxicos y buscan buenas personas. Explicamos por qué.

  • Se necesitan líderes que dirijan y practiquen con el ejemplo, en lugar de jefes a los que hay que dar todo hecho
  • Aportan más las buenas personas que los trabajadores tóxicos que dedican una buena parte de su jornada laboral a intrigar y generar mal ambiente de trabajo

Antonio fue a la entrevista de trabajo dispuesto a conseguir el trabajo de jefe que tanto ansiaba. Por fin acariciaba esa tan luchada promoción interna. Sin embargo, no solo no consiguió el ascenso, sino que una semana después lo citaron para presentarle el finiquito, y es que lo que Antonio no sabía, era que su empresa estaba cambiando, y ya no buscaban un jefe, sino un buen líder.

Automatización: El “coco” de los adultos en el siglo XXI

Automatización: El “coco” de los adultos en el siglo XXI | Edumorfosis.Work | Scoop.it

El futuro del trabajo pronto se convertirá en “la supervivencia de los más adaptables”, dice Paul Mason, director de tecnologías emergentes de Innovate UK, ya que a medida en que las nuevas tecnologías cambian la forma en que trabajamos, lo que queda será multifacético y cambiante.

“Los trabajadores del futuro necesitarán ser altamente adaptables y hacer malabarismos con tres o más roles diferentes a la vez”, asegura Anand Chopra-McGowan, jefe de nuevos mercados empresariales para la Asamblea General Europea. Entonces, la educación continua desempeñará un papel clave para ayudar a las personas a desarrollar nuevas habilidades.

Los nuevos profesionales necesitan capacitarse constantemente para estar al día con los últimos avances tecnológicos, ya que los trabajos son cada vez más automatizados y redundantes.

Pregúntele a un millennial. A diferencia nuestra o de nuestros padres -que pasamos casi toda una vida en la misma empresa- la idea de un “trabajo para toda la vida” está pasada de moda. Odian sentirse atados y la idea de permanecer más de tres años en el mismo lugar les frustra. Esto, sumado al escenario que venimos presenciando, ayudará a que la mano de obra se desplace hacia la independencia, en tiempo parcial, pues para ellos tener tiempo de valor para compartir y experimentar también es fundamental.
