At our March meeting we will be joined by John Boudreau, i4cp Board Member, and Senior Research Scientist at the Center for Effective Organizations and Professor Emeritus at University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business.
Our conversation with John will focus on the provocative notion of “Work Without Jobs,” the subject of John’s recent writing and his forthcoming new book. Everyone is thinking about what the future of work will look like. The disruptions of 2020 and 2021 have accelerated the evolution of the very definition of work, and its role in organizations, society and workers’ lives, opportunities and well-being. Work is “melting” and being deconstructed. The work ecosystem is more boundaryless, beyond the traditional organization. Careers are being redefined as more diverse, boundless and reflecting lifelong learning and the 100-year life. Combinations of human and automated work perpetually change. This future holds a paradox in that it can produce a future that is more empowering and inclusive, but it can also be used in ways that are exploitive and less inclusive.You won't want to miss this one, so make sure you have it on your calendar and/or register for the meeting here. We look forward to seeing you next Thursday.
In this research-driven working group, learn how high-performance organizations far outdistance others in workforce planning effectiveness, and collaborate with peers to develop and share tools and practices that will aid in building your organization’s workforce planning capability.
