Product description

From the Inside Flap

By now, it's old news that Millennials are entering the workforce in droves. It's old news that mobile work is gaining speed, and it's old news--even ancient news, by today's 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's 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's 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.

What is work? What is an employee? What is leadership? You may not be asking these questions, but you can be sure that the future employee is. There is no doubt that changes are occurring. The Future of Work explains what those changes will look like and how businesses can adapt and succeed in this new landscape. The author, a thought leader in the strategic management space, demonstrates how you and your organization can thrive without working 9-5 in a cubicle, without out-dated management approaches, and without treating employees like cogs.

The companies that have a future are the ones that focus on what the future will bring. This book pushes the boundaries of how we think about work and opens our minds to new possibilities and new ways of doing business. Readers may also request to join the FOWCommunity.com, an invite only membership community for sharing advice and best practices with other companies around the world who are looking to meet the challenges of the new, open, collaborative future. Read The Future of Work to learn what a 21st century workplace looks like, what it means to you, and what you have to do about it.

From the Back Cover

Praise for THE FUTURE OF WORK

"Morgan's book offers a compelling look into the future--how all of us will work, how many of us will lead, and how organizations themselves must transform in the face of these changes."
--Daniel H. Pink, NY Times bestselling author of Drive and To Sell is Human

"Jacob Morgan cracks the code on the biggest mystery in the workplace: what it takes to build and sustain a new generation of loyal, engaged and inspired colleagues. It's impossible to read this book and not see the great risks of the status quo."
--Bill McDermott, CEO, SAP

"To be future-ready, companies need to embrace a new type of culture that empowers employees to find innovative ways to drive impact. The Future of Work provides a helpful roadmap to engage the workforce of a new generation."
--Brad Smith, President and CEO, Intuit

"With markets shifting along social, economic and technological lines, organizations and leaders need new strategies to inspire and motivate their most valuable asset - their people. The Future of Work provides valuable insights that will help organizations seize opportunities in this rapidly changing landscape, transforming a possible vulnerability into a competitive strength."
--John Veihmeyer, Global Chairman, KPMG

"In a truly global economy, with information available 24/7 and where the speed of everything is rapidly increasing .... Morgan does a great job of stimulating the reader to think how this will impact organizations, people and practices in the workplace."
--Jeff M. Fettig, Chairman & CEO Whirlpool Corporation

"Morgan has written a book to help you understand how the world of work is changing, why it's changing, and what you need to do about it. The Future of Work inspires you to rethink how employees work, how managers lead, and how organizations are structured."
--Gary Hamel, Founder, Management Lab

"In a connected world where behaviors are changing, organizations must rethink how work gets done. The Future of Work provides a structured framework and key principles to help organizations of today chart a path to success for tomorrow."
