Summary of The Future of Work
The Promise of the New Digital Work Society
To keep your balance in a quickly shifting world, become your own gyroscope.
Charles Grantham’s book examines rapid changes in the workplace in response to new technologies. He looks at how these changes affect all of us personally and explains how to prepare for the future. The book’s language is quite academic. The average reader could find it difficult to read from beginning to end. Regular readers of business books, on the other hand, may find that many of the ideas sound familiar. This is because Grantham references more than 125 previously published works. getAbstract recommends this book to futurists and trend-watchers, particularly those from a more academic background.
In this summary, you will learn
- What the future holds for workers
- How crises can foster cooperation in the workplace and community
- Why understanding change and accepting it will ease your transitions
