2020 Vision: The World of Work

2020 Vision: The World of Work is a twelve month research and scenario development programme the results of which will be published in a definitive report.

The decade 2010 – 2020 is set to see some extraordinary changes in how organisations work. Change which, in terms of impact, will rival anything we have seen in the last 100 years as organisations grapple with:

  • Enterprise 2.0

  • Increasing workplace democracy

  • The rise of soft processes and the acceleration of HCI design (Human Computer Interface)

  • New methods of work place collaboration

  • The structural transition from hierarchies to processes to networks

  • New leadership, EQ and networking competency requirements

Not to mention the ticking demographic time bomb that lies in the hourglass population distribution and the challenges of employing the children of the digital revolution.

This study is concerned with what is going to happen, when it is going to happen and how organisations can take advantage of these changes earlier than their competitors. In short how they can “get to the future first”.
