First, props to Jamie Billingham for introducing us to Coggle, a mind mapping tool that’s allowed us to capture our preliminary thoughts on the Future of Work.
Now, what’s all the buzz about?
Inspired by Deloitte’s Tom Friedman interview back in July, we’ve started to reflect: What will the future of work look like? How can we shape it? What’s already happening to drive these changes?
Here’s the first “snapshot” release – what we have so far – for reflection and discussion.
For more in depth viewing, here’s a link to the ORGDNA-FutureOfWork v1 PDF version.
Let’s use our MON 10/16/17 chat, 9-10:30pm ET, to dive into this. We can discuss what we’ve captured so far using Q’s 1-4. Are we good with:
- Q1. To the left, initial conditions: Stakeholders, Trust & Culture?
- Q2. To the right, outcomes: Platform & Learning?
- Q3. At the top, unsolved problems; Silos & Transparency?
- Q4. At the bottom, enablers: Technology?
And then to chart our course for 2018
- Q5. What can we learn from this model?
- Q6. What’s next?
We’d love your input. Just drop us comments on this post, or to individual members tweeting at #orgdna. In fact, it’s probably easiest to simply join the conversation (details below).
Lot’s to talk about .. looking forward to where we might take this.
